"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."

Sewn byBoth Hand and Machine

Materials:

  • Tulip® Craft Mat™  
  • Tulip® Dimensional Fabric Paint  
    • C1    White (65000)     
  • White chalk sharpened to a point
  • Felt yardage – red – 1/3 yard
  • Sewing pins
  • Sewing machine with matching thread
  • Pinking shears (optional)
  • Scissors
  • Paper towels
  • Needle and thread
  • (2) Small buttons – white
  • Pattern

Instructions:

  1. Cut out patterns for booties. Pin onto double layer of red felt then cut out. Note: for smaller size, cut next to pattern, and for larger size, cut pattern out, leaving a 1/4” border around each piece.
     
  2. Matching toe marks, pin top layer to sole, ending at heel. Trim off excess at ends, creating a 1/2” overlap then pin to heel.
     
  3. Starting at heel, sew around booties using a 1/4” seam. Remove pins then use pinking shears to trim around edge and along inside opening.
     
  4. Add a thin bead of Fabric Fusion along overlap at heel then press together.
     
  5. Use pinking shears to cut two strips, one 1/2” x 3” and one a scant 1/2” x 2 1/2” for heel.
     
  6. Add glue to one side at ends of shorter strip then press onto heel, folding over seam as shown. Let dry. This will become hanger when used for ornament.
     
  7. Flatten out toe of booties then pin to Craft Mat – it will hold project in place and pinholes won’t affect self-healing mat.
     
  8. Flip over snowflake pattern then draw along lines with chalk. Position pattern chalk side down over toe area and press in place. Run a finger over lines to transfer chalk pattern onto booties.
     
  9. Start flow of White Slick 3D Fashion Paint on paper towel using an even pressure on bottle for a smooth line. Add detail in following order, wiping tip of bottle with paper towels after each section for a clean line: Start with long center lines, small hearts at tips, “V” shape on every other line, larger center dot then smaller dots around design. Add stitch lines to longer felt strip. Let dry.
     
  10. Use needle and thread to sew buttons to one end of straps.
     
  11. Glue straps in place, making sure buttons are mirror image on booties. Let dry.

 

Notes:

  • Hand stitching with embroidery floss can be used instead of sewing machine.

These are adorable. I read the directions and they may take some time but they are very easy to do. I have so may ideas for them. Placing them on the Christmas dinner table and place mints in them. Or add them to the rere with treats. Even a dollar for the grand kids.

Wouldn't it be easier to add the snowflake before sewing the top and bottom together? That way the material will be nice and flat.

Hi there, Thanks so much for the tip! Happy crafting!
