Hi friends! Today I am here with a Sizzix tutorial using a new die by Eileen Hull. Its a fun and easy project.
When I was a child I had two vintage sewing boxes which I treasured very much. I still have them and they are full of little treasures from my childhood; buttons, zippers, labels, scraps of fabric I got from my mom, thread, ribbons and more. One of them is very similar to the design of Eileen Hull's Cantilever Sewing Box and I made this to mimic my own box. If you want a different look, you can skip the wood technique and instead use patterned paper or bright paint. Anton wants me to make a blue one for him. The finished size is about 6.5 x 4.5 x 2.2 in, so it is pretty big, and when you open it it is about 16 in.
Here is my sewing box. It has got one layer less than the mat board version.
I hope you enjoyed this tutorial! If you don't want to make a sewing box, you can use the faux wood technique on another project.
