What are you most proud of? I am that kind of messy person that throw things into the wardrobe and then unable to find them in time to use them. So I decided to go with storage boxes. Something cute, recycled, made by made self and not too difficult to do, too. I find this super cut free cat paper piecing pattern: http://artisania.wordpress.com/2008/10/10/free-cat-pattern/ (thanks! thanks! thanks!) So I thought: why don't give paperpiecing a try? And here it is, my first paperpiece block ! Lots of errors I know, but I like it that way. Now I'm going to make some other boxes like this one ! ..it is super easy to do (just a dress for a cardboard box) and my wardrobe starts to look tidy!!!!

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Ps. it just a long rectangle of fabric. All I have to do is only to sew the base one side at the time rotating the base itself around. You can see what I mean in photo nr 3 with a lot of pin
