What advice would you give someone starting this project? There are two sections to this pattern: The first gives the pattern for knitting the pin cushion inside the box and the second focuses on instructions for painting the box to achieve the shabby chic look. The complete project is broken down into 10 easy steps. This project is a lot of fun, very easy, and you'll want to make some for all of the seamstresses and quilters you know. There are several sources where you can purchase the Paper Mache embossed boxes.
