"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."

Jewelry Pouch or Sachet

By: Joyce Drexler for Sulky

Sew up a scalloped pouch in shiny lame fabric for keeping jewelry or holding potpourri or dried herbs as a sachet. Decorative thread creates a contrast on the pretty scalloped edge. Find this bag sewing pattern from Sulky of America with 19 other great sewing patterns in the Sewing for Beginners eBook.

Prepare Fabrics for Cut-Work & Scallops

  1. Using a press cloth, iron the woven fusible interfacing onto the back of the Lame' to keep it from fraying.
  2. Layer --- "Make a sandwich" Spray each layer with KK 2000 to hold the "sandwich" together without pins. Layer as follows:

    Interfaced Lame, right side down
    Fleece or Batting
    2 layers of Soft n Sheer
    Trigger Fabric for lining of bag, right side up
  3. Working from the right side of the Trigger, measure 3/4" down from one 7" end and, with a white chalk marker, draw a 4 3/4" centered line that will be 1 1/8" from both sides. Draw two 11" parallel lines connecting to the ends of the 4 3/4" line. Measure from one end of each 11" line and make a hash mark every 1" across each line to the end. Then make a gently curved line of scallops at 1" intervals to connect the two parallel lines, or use the pattern of the curve scallops (see Prepare the Cut-Work Design) to stitch the scallops.

  4. If your machine has a built-in or programmable scallop stitch, adjust the stitch length to make 1" scallops. Otherwise, you will need to make your own scallops by tapering your zig-zag satin stitch to form a scallop. Attach an open-toed applique foot to your machine for easy viewing. Thread both the top and bobbin with Sulky 40 wt. Rayon to match your Trigger or Lame. Stitch the scallops from the Trigger side, following your chalk markings. Stitch a satin stitch across the 4 3/4" straight line of the design. Flip to Lame side.

Prepare the Cut-Work Design

  1. Lightly spray KK 2000 onto the cut-work design pattern. Smooth one of the 10" squares of Sulky Solvy or Super Solvy over it and trace the design onto the Solvy using a fine-line, permanent- ink marker. Carefully peel off the traced Solvy from the pattern.
  2. Spray KK 2000 onto both sides of the curved end of the "sandwich". Smooth the Solvy Pattern in place over the Lame layer of the "sandwich". Smooth another layer of Solvy under the "sandwich". Secure all in an 8" wooden machine embroidery hoop.
  3. Continue using the Sulky Rayon Thread in the needle and bobbin as you straight stitch 3 times (laying one row of stitching right next to another) over the cut-work lines on the Solvy. Stitching can be done "free-motion" with feed-teeth down using a darning foot, or with the feed-teeth up along with an open-toed applique foot.

  4. Use small, sharp-pointed scissors to carefully cut away all layers, except the bottom Solvy layer, up to the straight stitching. Or, you can cut through all layers, spray another 10" square of Solvy, and smooth it under the "sandwich". Rehoop all.

  5. Stitch free-motion Richelieu Bars across crescent shaped cut-work area by straight stitching three times almost on top of each other, being sure to anchor ends in previous straight stitching.

Finish the Bag

  1. Cut away the excess fabric from scallops; remove all Solvy. To finish edges, use a slightly larger width setting than original stitching and make a tapered satin stitch over the scallops and cut-work areas; do not use a built-in scallop stitch since its almost impossible to match previous stitching.

    Pouch 6
  2. Fold the bag, matching 5 scallops together. Stitch in the ditch of the scallops or satin stitching to sew the sides together. Sew the button on. The bottom loop of the cut-work becomes the buttonhole closure.
  3. Fill with candy, a perfumed cotton, or use as a travel bag for jewelry. Makes a wonderful holiday gift that anyone would love to receive. Project Image

Wow...This is so luxe and rich looking. They are lovely. I made one and now I am hooked. Great gifts too.

I actually tried using left over lace instead of doing the scallops and it turned out great.
