Do you struggle to find ways of storing projects that you have underway?
Keep your pattern, fabrics and notions close at hand, with these unique and practical fabric boxes.

OD5 Bird of the Meadow - fabric storage boxes Collage smaller file (1)

There are 2 sized boxes to create. The small box is 6½" high x 8" wide, the large box is 8½" high x 10" wide. On the back, the larger features a handy pleated pocket to hold those little notions that can be tricky to find.

The two bird panels are both suited to either size box, leaving you free to choose both the size and style of your creation. The smaller box fits inside the larger, creating a set of 2 nesting boxes. Why not create both?

The feature of "Birds of the Meadow" is of course these little applique birds... each one created with a dimensional wing and tail.
