I taught this skill in my Book Lovers Block of the Month Club. Quilters made many boxes for themselves and gifts ! BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY You should know how to use a sewing machine, follow a pattern with such skills as placing right sides of the fabric together. You should know how to slip stitch. The box allows for a ruffle trim, so making a ruffle is an optional skill. SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS The pattern makes a 6" square box.
