Summer Sensations Blog Hop

Summer Sensations-smallerIt’s day one of Summer Sensations Blog Hop. Thanks to Marian from Seams To Be Sew and today’s sponsor The Fat Quarter Shop.

It’s been a hot summer and living in a house with no air conditioning is not always good for sewing. Thank goodness I have a cool basement. With that, you’d think that I’d be sewing my little heart out, but no. It’s been a busy summer so simple projects are perfect.

For this hop I decided, since I’m moving my sewing room to a bigger space, to make a fabric container. More room for more organizers. I used a McCalls pattern….

The box I made is E. I didn’t follow the directions exactly. As you can see in the picture it is a two color box. I made a solid black box.

I cut a block out of a panel from Moda’s Bee Creative by Deb Stain to add to the front. This is such a cute line of fabric and I’m using it for several projects this summer. It’s a Bee kinda of summer.

I fused the block on the box then I embellished with ribbon and things.

Such a cute box. I took the picture not long after gluing the bee charm on. So you can see the glue there, sorry. 🙂

This box can be made in one day, so it’s a quick project. It was fun too so I’ll be making more.

  1. You just gave me the perfect project to use some trim I had no idea why I was saving–but of course was! Thanks! 😀

  2. What a great idea! I have wanted to cover some boxes with fabric to make my room look fun. I’ll have to look for this pattern. I bought some industrial loom spools this past year. I like that you tucked them into your box.

  3. Well, we at least have air conditioning but I retreat to the basement too so I can quilt in comfort.
    I like how the three of you scheduled for today had completely different projects. I am summer sensationing on Friday ~
