I used the same stitches in a linear pattern for the side panel, repeating some to get the appropriate width:
I already turned the seam allowances to the back, so this is roughly how the boxes’ sides will look like when finished. Using a really dense stitch for the borders will help to hide the seam allowances when I start to assemble the box, and it also gives a finished feel to the whole design. The stitch I used is described under the name of Long Arm Cross-Stich at the ANG website, but is known under different names, too.
Now I only need to find the time and energy to finish this up, which is not going to happen anytime soon with Christmas just round the corner. But I like what I have till now, so I’ll definitely finish it.
