Large Fabric Box Using the Rag Quilt Technique

One is always looking for possibilities to store or organize their items. This particular box is being used to keep knitting supplies together but you can use it to hold just about anything. These type boxes are easy to sew and also very decorative as well.



Large Fabric Box 3

For this project you will need:

- strong fabric matching your decor (for this particular box, 5 pieces each measuring 35 x 35 centimeters were used)
- solid colored lining fabric that coordinates with the chosen fabric, also 5 pieces, each measuring 35 x 35 centimeters
- 10 pieces of strong iron-on interfacing, each piece measuring 32 x 32 centimeters
- 5 pieces of batting, each piece measuring 32 x 32 centimeters
- sewing thread that matches the fabric
- scissors and sewing supplies


1. Iron on the interfacing to the backside of each of the fabric pieces. Now layer the pieces like a sandwich in this manner:

1 printed fabric piece facing up
1 piece of batting
1 lining fabric, face down (this is the side you will see inside the box)

2. Sew an “x” through each sandwich to hold the layers together.
3. Decide which of the 5 squares will be the bottom. Sew now the remaining 4 pieces on each side of the bottom piece so that you have what looks like a cross shape. The seam allowances are facing outwards
4. Take two sides together and sew them so that the seam allowance is on the outside. Do this with the remaining 3 sides so that your box is now complete.
5. Stich across the entire top of the box to close off the fabric. If your box seems a bit flimsy, sew a diagonal stich across each of the top 4 corners, about 2 centimeters from the corner to pull the sides a little bit together.
