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!
