"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."

Rose Chair Caddy

By: Dimensions Needlecrafts

A cross-stitch rose pillowcase transforms into a handy chair caddy, perfect for storing supplies at your craft desk. With a pre-stamped design, the cross-stitch design from Dimensions is simple to create on the pillowcase. You can also create a Rose Bed Caddy on this same idea. 

Rose Chair Caddy

Materials:

  • One pillow case from kit #72759
  • One 17" x 14-1/2" piece of calico for the lining
  • One 17" x 1-1/2" strip of calico for the pocket binding
  • Two 22" x 2-1/2" strips of calico for the ties
  • Two 4" x 2-1/2" strips of calico for the seam bindings


Instructions:

NOTE: All seam allowances are 1/2". Cut off the hem of the pillow case. Pin the front and back together around the stitching. Treating the front and back as one, cut out the pocket as shown below. Save the top piece for the apron back.

Rose Chair Caddy 1

Press one long edge of the pocket binding 1/2" to the wrong side. Place it right side down on the wrong side of the pocket, aligning the top edges. Sew them together. Fold the binding to the right side. Stitch the folded edge of the binding to the pocket, working as close to the edge as possible.

Rose Chair Caddy 2

Press the short ends of the ties 1/2" to the wrong side. Press the ties in half by bringing the long edges together. Open them up and press the long edges in to meet the fold. Refold them along the fi rst fold and stitch the layers together along the open edge. Press the seam binding pieces in the same way, but don't stitch them together. Use the calico lining to cut out one back piece from the top of the pillow case you saved. With the right sides together, sew the lining and back together at the top 17" edge. Turn right side out and press the top edge. Sew the pocket to the back.

Rose Chair Caddy 3

Cover the exposed seam allowances at the top of the apron with the seam binding.

Chair Caddy 4

Trim the seam allowances at the bottom corners, then turn the apron right side out. Press the seams. Stitch through all layers to make three sections as shown.

Rose Chair Caddy 5

Sew the ties to the seam binding at the top corners of the apron.

What a lovely use of a nice old linen. Does anyone else check the local thrifts and find you cannot pass up a beautifully embroidered pillowcase? I always imagine the person who spent their time trying to make something beautiful. This chair caddy is great and the instructions are simple. This would be good on the back of a high chair too, holding extra bibs and a packet of wipes. I think there could be a lot of uses for this project, please share your ideas.
