My Time to Craft #405 - 'Anything but a Card'

A new challenge starts today over at My Time to Craft
where the theme this fortnight is 'Anything but a Card'

All the details can be found HERE
 Here is my design team project - a quilted box.
I learnt to make one of these on the Beginners Sewing Machine course
 I attended with Claire at Beautiful Things.
The good news is, Claire will soon be running this course online, which is
fabulous news for anyone who is unable to attend the class at her studio.
A tote bag and a zipped cushion cover are the other two projects 
to make on the course.
I made it using half a fat quarter of material, felt and wadding bought
It is 10" square, so I have enough material left over to make another one.

I can see they're going to be addictive to make in all patterns and sizes,
and would make really nice gifts - just as they are or filled with some nice treats.

Thank you for visiting my blog today.
