Last weekend, i spent the whole day in the studio. I wanted to make a fabric box like i used to make in high school. I made tons of these for friends and kept only one for myself... so I started with painting the walls.
I used a text fabric and did the painting on top of that - that is my new favorite thing to do!
when i assembled the walls, i stitched with a free motion foot around each panel. I think i liked the art better before the stitching... but it's ok.
I left all the raw edges on the outside and did some very intricate fringing around all the edges ( while watching shawn of the dead with the kids)... that took forever but i liked the way it came out
Sadly, the box was a bit off center when it was finished. I do like it... but i am going to try it one more time. I did it with chipboard and batting inside. I am gonna try it with just batting inside this time...
this panel is for my ma... who always used to tell us to "do it cute" when i had my store - we never did anything unless it was cute!
that panel is front and center at the bottom inside of the box
