I made these for our three granddaughters. Their mother calls one a butterfly, one a flower, and one a bird, so

I bought fabric in those themes. They loved the boxes. My sister help me make these boxes. We made them all in about 7 hours. thank you sister! we started with fabric squares for the large 16x16, medium was 14x14,and the small was a 12x12

Lovely boxes. I know they will be used with pleasure. I made myself an oblong one for my pens and use that daily. But I have yet to make a square one for other things that litter my sewing space.
