Thanks to my friend Angela for reminding me about making fabric boxes and to Seaside Stitches for her tutorial. You can find it here.
To make the size boxes that are perfect for a Bath and Body Works candle, I used twelve-inch squares. Perfect size for little scissors and a few spools of thread or some chocolate truffles. I top stitched around the top of the boxes to make the flaps lay flat, but sewing on buttons is a nice touch too. Or, you can leave them softly standing up.
Rain today, which feels nice, emotionally. I am going to lunch with a church friend and we are having pancakes, at least I am. Perfectly comforting.
I've checked the menu and have decided on the wheat germ pancakes. The jar of wheat germ is a childhood memory. My mother always wanted us to eat healthy things but I, at least, was a brat and didn't want anything to do with such things. I can't remember about my siblings.
