vintage linens Holiday Fabric Boxes decorative pillow shams

You can whip up a bunch of these holiday gift boxes in no time at all. Filled with candy or homemade cookies they make a great holiday gift.

Apply a layer of Mistyfuse to each side of the Timtex. On one side fuse your outside fabric and on the other fuse your lining fabric.

Cut the following pieces from the Timtex:

Set your machine up for a zigzag stitch. I set my machine with a .45 length and 4.0 width.

Zigzag stitch all the way around the edge of each piece. When I do this, I stitch so that the needle falls just to the outside edge of the piece so that the thread sort of wraps around the edge.

I always stitch around twice because I like the way it looks but you can stitch once if you prefer.

Once you have finished stitching all the edges it’;s time to assemble the box. To assemble the box bottomvintage linens, you’ll want to lay out your 4″ x 4″ pieces in this configuration:

Set your machine up for a wider zigzag stitch. I set mine with a .45 length and 6.0 width on my BERNINA 7 Series sewing machine.

To attach each piece together about the edges of each side piece against the one you have chosen for the bottom and run a line of zigzag stitching down along the edge catching both edges of each piece.

The top of the box is assembled in the same way.

Now all that’s left to do is flip up the edges of both the sides of the box base and the lid and whipstitch them closed by hand.

Alternatively if you didn’;t want to hand stitch them together you can just pin the box together and run a bead of hot glue or fabric glue along the seams on the inside of the box.

Now you just need to fill the box with some holiday goodies! Enjoy!

Back in the days when showing your ankles was risqué and being seen canoodling with the opposite sex was a full blown ‘put them in the stocks and flog ‘um’, type scandal, Love Seats were a welcomed solution for courting couples (that’s people dating for the younger readers out there). They were able to sit close enough together to carry out a private conversation, have a bit of a flirt and possibly – if nobody was looking - a cheeky peck, but without actually sharing such a confined space they would end up ‘shock horror’ touching bodies, therefore making them acceptable.

The Victorian style is one of the most popular interior design styles and has been adopted and used by many people who don't necessarily live in a Victorian home. This lavish interior design style includes lots of different fabrics, textures, colours and furniture. In fact if you love having knick-knacks in your home this could be the interior design style to adopt. Walls: Paint was predominately used, especially in bedrooms where visitors are guests weren't staying. The colours are deep and rich, but they're muted rather than bright. Reds, golds and dark green can also be used to achieve the look.
