More Fabric Boxes

A few weeks ago I posted about the bunnies I was obsessed with and couldn’t stop making.  I ended up with 8 wabbits.  There would have been more but I needed to get Easter gifts to North Dakota.  And sometimes it takes a few extra days to get to the great white tundra.  And I needed to make something for 13 year-old Riley.  A bunny would not work for him.

Riley’s a Chicago Bears fan and I’ve already made him a name pillow in their colors plus Bears valances for his bedroom, so I made him a storage box with that theme.  And I put his name on it.  I used the sew4home.com tutorial for fabric boxes that I had used for my office but left off the rick rack and handles.  Didn’t want it to look girly!

Then I crammed everything in a little USPS box and sent them off to North Dakota!

Bye-bye Bunnies!

Alan and Lauri said that Piper loved the bunnies and named them Chocolate and Strawberry.

That left the other five grandkids.

The box for Riley turned out pretty good, so I made one for Justin–he’s a Gator’s Fan.

Next I made a fabric box for Courtney following the same instructions from back at Christmas when I made one for Piper .  I still have name fabric for Addison and Kendall, just waiting for a reason to put them together.  Both boxes are super easy to make.  I whipped both of these up in one afternoon.

Addison really liked her bunnies.

Both Courtney and Justin were thrilled with their fabric boxes.  Justin put a bunch of yu-gi-oh cards in his and headed out the door.  Busy guy.

And she found something to store!

We also celebrated Kendall’s 6th birthday on Easter.  She got a Pottery Barn doll house and all the accessories.  I think her favorite gift though was a pair of glasses from her Great Grandma Shirley.  You just never know!

Looks like Kathryn liked them, too.
