"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."

Please...somebody answer the questions. I am ready to make this but need guidance.

Would love to see a post where someone actually made this from the directions. I'm assuming "repeat from across" is meaning to start from the beginning and do it again until getting to the end of the chain!! Also, I'm a little confused where it says to start in the 7th chain from the hook....does that mean the 8th chain? The next instruction is to "SKIP 7 chains" putting your next stitch in the 8th chain. This creates a 'lace' look and the "repeats" are unbalanced since the first instruction is at 7 and the next ones are on chain 8. I must be missing something here!!! Also, if this first row is to connect with the bodice, these 'lace' chains aren't going to connect with a straight edge, as pictured, very well.

Would love to make this for my grand daughter but after looking over the pattern there seems to be some issues.

did we get an answer on the question..."repeat from" where???

In your directions it states "rep from across". My question is repeat from the beginning or is there a specific place to repeat?
