The Rosebud Box – Almost There!

July 3, 2016 at 3:27 pm | Posted in Embroidery | 8 Comments

I didn’t think I had even the slightest chance at a finish, but after yesterday’s soccer match including extra time and penalty shootout, I was almost there. So close that we could pretend this picture is of the finished box:


Unfortunately, when you lift that box, the bottom will fall out, but I’m sure that’ll  be fixed at the next soccer match at the latest.

The construction was almost as fiddly as I expected, here’s the story in pictures:

The little plastic clips you see in quite a few pictures are marketed for quilters, but I never found a good use for them till now. They’re indispensable when trying to construct something like this box, where you’re short a few hands all the time.

So,  some more pictures of the really finished box next time, and a new project!

Here are the other members of the SAL who are posting today. Make sure to check out their work, it’s amazing: Avis, Claire, Gun, Carole, Wendy, Lucy, Jess, Sue, Kate, Debbie Rose. There’s also a new member to check out today, welcome to Christina!

  1. it’s so pretty!
    if you hadn’t told us the bottom wasn’t attached, we’d never have guessed ^^

  2. Oh wow, it’s fabulous! Well done on such a lovely (almost) finish!

  3. We need never have known about the loose base 🙂 It’s such a pretty box. I have used those quilter’s clips for cartonnage projects, and I agree, they’re much the best thing – clothes pegs are too long and unwieldy.

  4. That’s a lot of work getting it assembled and it looks fantastic. It’s so pretty and beautifully made 🙂

  5. Adorable box, so pretty. I use the same clips there so handy

  6. Wow! It’s turned out so much nicer than I had imagined it would. Fabulous! Thank you for making the slide show. I can’t wait to see what you’ll be making next 🙂

  7. This is absolutely beautiful!

  8. Beautiful box!! And thank you for all the photos, so we could see how it was done!!
