Victorian Sewing Box

This padded hexagonal box with its unusual closure, was illustrated in an 1867 Godey's Lady's Book. Use it for sewing, jewelry or other special treasures. Barbara will show you how to choose your fabrics, make the templates and complete all the sewing steps. The pattern includes three sizes, 6", 8" and 10". If you prefer, a precut kit is available for the 10" size, for $8.00 (includes postage in the U.S.). The pieces can be cut to fit the smaller sizes. For the experienced quilter or sewer.
