"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."

does anyone know of one of theses hoodies in a crochet pattern

Hi there, Here is a great crochet hoodie pattern for kids - Thanks! Julia from FaveCrafts

Knitting this at the moment it looks adorable.

Where is the illustration for sewing the pocket on? There is no clear instruction on how to do this.

@THEMSJOANOFFL - I checked the original site where we found the pattern and there was no diagram included. I apologize for any inconvenience. -Editor for

I'm almost done with this 'child's hoodie' and I noticed that the diagram of the sweater is missing. Pls, send it to me asap. TY,

I knitted this in turquoise for my grandaughter in chunky wool and she loves it...very easy to knit for a beginner such as myself, highly recommend this pattern for similar levels of ability.

I can't say how much I like this pattern. Knitted up so quickly. My grandson loves it as well. Very easy to put together and recomend it for a beginner for a qick gift to make. Made a size 4 and was perfect. He even had room under it for a shirt.

Very cute! Easy to knit.
