"Over the years I have made several of these. Speaking from personal experience, I can tell you that these boxes -when used in the pictured position- are not strong enough on their own to hold very many books or magazines for very long. Eventually they will sag and become an eyesore. Preventing the eyesore from happening is simple - turn the boxes on their side once they are completed, and Voila! They are an EXCELLENT way to wrangle in all that clutter and chaos we often find throughout our home and office. There is also another way to make them strong and that is to REINFORCE THEM. Personally, I like to do this when I need to use the boxes for flimsier items like loose papers that have a tendency to curl on their edges if stored on their sides or when not packed tightly. Reinforcing the boxes means you can put a lot more weight into them even while they are laying flat like they are in the picture. I reinforce my boxes with a very thin wood that can be purchased at almost any hardware store - it is called Louon (my spelling is probably off but it is pronounced LEW-ON). It is very cost-effective and extremely easy to work with. Add to this that it is VERY VERSATILE and you have a great solution to making even very flimsy projects much more stable. I hope this helps! BTW USPS boxes are legal to use BUT ONLY if you PURCHASED them OR they are USED. IF you are thinking about using new boxes that were FREE from the USPS Priority Mail Services - then you would be breaking the law. New FREE Boxes MUST be used only for Mail. Boxes that are Purchased or Used should be OK."

In the Designer's Words: "Pineapple prints & motifs are all over the place and so trendy right now. So I thought I will show how to make a 3D pineapple out of felt. As many of you might not have a sewing machine, I will also show a no sew version of making it. Without much ado, let's get to the making."

Materials List

  • Yellow felt - 2 sheets
  • Green Felt - 2 sheets
  • Pattern
  • Needle and thread
  • Polyfill Stuffing
  • Marble gems / beans/ rice /stones for weight (Optional)
  • Sewing machine (Optional)
  • Brown or black marker (optional)
  • Hot glue gun
  • Scissors

Instructions

  1. Trace the pattern on to the felt sheets.You will need 5 pieces to make one pineapple. I traced ten as I made two (one set for sewing version and another no sew version).

  2. Take two pieces, right sides facing each other and sew one side as shown. In the same way, join the other three pieces together.

  3. Now join the 3 piece part and 2 piece part together, sew completely on one side and while attaching the other side leave a small opening. Using that, turn the whole thing inside out.

  4. Now stuff the base of the pineapple with stuffing. Decide which side you want to use it as base. fill it with little stuffing and then add some weight like marbles/stones/rice/beans to make to stand. Then fill the remaining with more stuffing. If you are using it as a pillow, you can avoid adding weights

  5. Close the opening with a ladder stitch using needle and thread. Your pineapple base is done.

  6. Now that the base is ready, let's move on to the making of pineapple crown. For this take a paper and draw a rough pattern. If you are confident, you can skip drawing the pattern and cut straightly through the felt. Pin the pattern with the felt and cut the piece for the crown. Don't throw away the cut pieces in between, you can use them it later steps.
