Our Victorian box design is a useful size and has a 5¼" square footprint when closed and stands 5¾" tall.
Sometimes called an exploding box, not only do the four outer walls fall open once the lid is removed, the inner four walls also collapse. We’ve given this box a really nice, soft to handle feel as with this kit we’ve also included a lightweight batting for the outer panels.
Each kit comes with full and clear instructions, the pattern for cutting your fabric to the perfect size, the polyester wadding and the die-cut cardboard shapes.
To complete each kit you will need:
Half a metre of your chosen outer fabric and a quarter of a metre of inner fabric; oddments or half a metre of ribbon/lace and narrow elastic for making and trimming the pockets. For ease we recommend 100% cotton fabric is used. If you are using a larger design which you wish to centralise or you are pattern matching please allow additional fabric.
You’ll also need PVA glue and a spreader both of which are available to order on this site.
Matching thread, sewing needle and thimble. Whilst the use of a sewing machine is helpful, it’s not essential as only a minimal amount of very basic sewing is required.
