More gift boxes 1st pic what the L box looked like before I put it together with regular machine the D and B boxes I used a square and triangle then sewed them together the actual alpha design is from Stitch Delight it was a free alpha a few weeks back. Not sure if I like the black on gold or the varigated or the plain gold. I think also i should do some stippling on the triangle part of box I think it will sit better I can still do that part on the regular machine

Thanks Chris I needed something this year that would not take up much room in the suitcase

I admire your courage to stitch these out on such a special fabric. Your results are fabulous! They might be "gift boxes," but the box itself is a gift!

Thank you for your kind words as for the fabric I bought meters of it years ago for a special Christmas project and am still using up the scraps

You really have been making a lot of boxes. They are all very creative. I would have a hard time choosing a favorite. Well done.

Yes they all have batting and backing I tried one without and just used water soluble viilene but It was not firm enough.

These look so expensive with this fabric. I think the dark thread shows up better but all of them are so pretty. You've been a busy Cutie!

Thank you Toogie but the fabric was hard to work with I had to iron on vilene as well as batting and backing the fraying was awful also used anti fray on the on the satin stitch
