Etui French Sewing Box Kit

This six-sided etui from Home Arts uses classic French design to make a one-of-a-kind sewing box that's both beautiful and functional. The case is lined on each side, inside and out, with your hand-selected fabrics. A pin-cushion forms the centerpiece of the project, with a padded top that perfectly complements the design. When opened up, the six walls fall away in a stunning floral motif for easy and convenient access to everything inside. Each wall of the box secures multiple pockets for a variety of sewing tools, keeping everything you need to be creative in a single, well-organized place. It's a sewing box like no other, and one that will bear your own personal mark of expression.

A six-sided French Sewing box kit, opens like a flower to reveal multiple pockets and an optional pin-cushion. The sides pull closed with a drawstring and are secured by the lid.

The cross-stitch pattern is included with each kit. You will use your own fabric to create this original Etui. Just think of the possibilities! All the chipboard is pre-cut. Each piece is embossed with a number for easy identification. The box kits are assembled with white glues, the only sewing required is the elastic in the pockets.

This kit is assembled using Elmer's regular glue, and Aleene's regular tacky glue. The only sewing is the elastic in the pocket. The knob on the lid is a drawer pull (not included). The top 3 pieces have a center hole pre-drilled for you. The pieces are covered with fabric and screwed together with the drawer pull. There is an inner-lid piece that covers the screw.

Besides a darling chairside sewing box, this Etui can hold your favorite jewelry! I also have one set up to hold cards and dice, just leave out the pin-cushion! Try crazyquilting several fabrics to make the lid fabric! If you don't have fabric's at home this will give you an excuse to buy some of the fabulous fabrics available!
