I used Butterick Pattern B5623. Normally these storage boxes have zipper closures at the top, but I converted it to a hat-box type design because I didn't want to special order extra long zippers for the project. An added bonus of this style is that it compacts to a smaller box if you need it to:
The pre-quilted fabric they suggest using for china storage containers is beautiful but pricey, so I purchased some cheap calico and quilted it myself. TOO MUCH WORK! Next time, I'm busting out the wallet. I love these colors, though, and I've always been a sucker for paisley.
For the trimming, I tried out the bias tape maker I got for Christmas. Also too much work, imo :o).
As you can see from this shelf of china, I have a few more containers to make. Bring on the cozies!
