DIY Fabric Box Tutorial

Today’s post is a tutorial on how to sew a fabric box. I was in the midst of organizing my sewing space and thought a box made from pretty fabric would be a perfect accent. I looked at many tutorials on how to make a box and in the end came up with my own method that just required cutting half a yard of fabric and sewing the 3 seams. Want to give this a try? Directions after the jump.

Mad For Fabric - DIY Liberty Hera Feather Top

DIY Liberty Hera Peacock Feather Top

To continue destashing my Liberty fabric collection, I decided to indulge in some selfish sewing and use one of my fabrics for a new spring top. I chose this lovely Liberty Hera peacock feather print I saw used in this J.Crew shirt. I used my favorite Simplicity pattern 1377 view E also seen here and here.

It was harder to align the feather print when cutting the pattern pieces than actually sewing up this top. I realized afterwards I much prefer sewing with prints that are not directional =)

Here is  close up of this lovely print. I have some left over fabric that I listed in my Etsy shop here if you are interested in purchasing this print.
