Love the felt box, it would be great to give gifts in or store things around the house. I may just have to make some of these thanks for the instructions. Also, loving the little bird pendant just gorgeous!!


nice idea! i've been browsing your blog -- lovely work! i did some similar birds as a gift recently; the stitch patterns you used have so much personality.

That felt box is so cute that I just had to make one today as soon as I saw it. I'll take a picture but it may be a week before I can post it because I have to take pictures the old-fashioned way, wait for them to develop and scan them in.

Thanks for the pattern/tutorial! I think I'll be making more of these!

Awesome tutorial! Thanks!


Wow, that's adorable.


This box is beautiful! And your felt really looks gorgeous, looks amazingly soft. Is it pure wool?
I just read your comment on my blog - thank you! I'd love to try your felt :-)

Thanks for the pattern! I'll send you a picture when my version is done :-)

As soon as I saw this tutorial I went immediately to the thrift store for some sweaters to felt in the wash. I made about a dozen of these for my co-workers' desks for pencils, scissors and such. They thought I was wacky for making boxes out of sweaters but they loved them nonetheless. My next goal is to make bigger, more shallow ones to organize my magazines. Thanks for the tute.


What cute and useful little box. Love it!


I am going to have to make a few of these. I am thinking pre-quilted fabric.


Great tutorial must try it!


Thanks for this, will add it to my growing list of must-try-projects!

Once again, I was inspired by this post to try a little felt box. For months I held this picture in the back of my head. Last week someone gave me my first Japanese felt book! They are the best! My pattern is a little different and I sewed it with the machine. Both patterns are sweet, but your picture is cuter.


Great tute! I have put up a link from my blog http://crafttutorials.wordpress.com I hope that's ok!

Thanks for sharing


Great tutorial- I could use a few of these.. but first I need some large spare pieces of felt to make them with!! Thanks for sharing :)

Me encanta!



Hi! Your little tutorial has been lurking in my brain for a week now, and I finally got the guts to give it a go this morning, on a slightly larger scale! I'm happy to report that it worked, and I even managed to make my first tutorial from it! Thanks for the inspiration!



Thanks for the tutorial! I've made a couple of these baskets already, and just love them. For pictures go to my blog: http://pm-betweenthelines.blogspot.com/2009/01/piece-of-white-paper.html. One is still in the making: http://pm-betweenthelines.blogspot.com/2009/01/felt-like.html.

Thanks for adding the new information, as well as your analysis. This is why your blog is one of the few I read that I also ever bother to comment on. I don't do it to hear myself talk - I do it because I know you actually listen.

I really liked this blog, very well prepared and with good topic of discussion.
