Design team make...Box for 1001 Things

Hello everyone...Genny here. For today's project, I have worked with this fantastic kit from    Pinflair, with is available to buy from Julie here at JB-Crafting Supplies. To go with this kit, you need to buy your chosen material..mine came from Julie...she has a wonderful variety're sure to find one that you love. You will also need some of the bookbinding glue. I would also advise to have either a ruler or measuring tape that covers centimetres. I also used a glue spreader, as I found it a lot easier to apply the glue. My first advice would be..if you have any cats...put them out of the tribe thought it was great fun to fiddle about once the tub of wet glue was was a very nerve wrecking time. Below are the photographs following my progress

One of the things that I did differently was to add the bottom lining of the fabric to the draw before I taped the sides seemed to give me a neater finish..but that is just a personal preference.
On the instructions it gives you the size to cut the fabric in readiness for covering the drawer...40cms x 8cms. I think that if I made another one, I would have cut it to 40cms x 9cms..just to give me a bit more wiggle room..and you cut any excess off anyway

Below are pictures of the finished project. I am so pleased with it. I'm going to use it to keep my ring collection in. At the moment all my rings are in a bowl on my dressing table..the kittens seem to think that they are there to play Well with this box..once you but the lid on..everything is safely closed away.

This was great fun to make and I completed it in an afternoon...despite the feline help. It would make a great present..just think who you could make it for and what colours they would like.

For next weeks project, I will be sharing one of my favourite quilt blocks. So until then...take care and happy crafting.
