A Great Use of Leftover Skinny Strips!
Dig into your stash and pull out pretty combinations of scraps for these fabric boxes. Make one or more, in either size, for yourself and for giving. They make wonderful gift bags filled with goodies for just about any occasion.
Sort your scraps into color themes or seasonal combinations. You may be surprised how many of these easy boxes you can make with what you have on hand.
The pattern specifies 1 1/4″ strips for the pieced bodies, but that can be varied. String piecing makes the boxes a breeze to stitch together.
Instructions are provided for boxes in two sizes:
- 4″ x 4″ x 12″
- 4″ x 4″ x 6″
You can easily adapt the pattern to other sizes by varying the dimensions of the starting rectangle.
The pattern for “Lotza Boxes” is included in the Autumn 2016 issue of Quilter’s World.
PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest has featured many patterns from vendors participating in the Craftsy Marketplace, most of which have been deleted by Craftsy. It's going to take awhile for us to hunt down new sources for those patterns. In the meantime there are many links to patterns on our site that no longer work. We apologize if this article contains one or more of those links and appreciate your patience while we straighten things out. Thank you!
PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest does not sell or otherwise provide patterns directly. We showcase patterns and projects from various vendors, bloggers and other sources. Please make a note of where you access a pattern (the link in the yellow box toward the end of each Quilting Digest article). That way you can contact Support for that source if you have downloading problems or other issues. Thank you!
