They’re Fun Gifts Too!
While not appropriate for actual fruit, these cute fabric berry boxes have so many uses in the sewing room as well as elsewhere around the house. They also make great gifts so plan to make extras while you’re at it.
They’re fun in any fabric combo. Start with two coordinating fat quarters, or scraps, and let the bias tape around the top (hand-cut or store-bought) provide an accent.

Double-sided fusible heavyweight interfacing gives the boxes structure (the designer uses Pelon 72F).
If you want to use your berry boxes for berries, consider making them from laminated fabric instead of quilting cotton. An example from alidiza is shown below.
Instructions are provided by the designer, Anna from Noodlehead, for boxes in two sizes:
- Large – about 4.75″ square
- Small – about 3.75″ square

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!
