Not so clever 3 sided box Mark 2

This time I needle punched the silk scraps to a piece of an old Tshirt before stitching to the felt and vilene. I got a much nicer finish.



I was pleased with this one, so I gave it a personal flourish and kept it for myself!

I've been looking at some old design work with an Egyptian flavour, and I think that's where the inspiration for the shape and the colours of these last 2 boxes probably came from.

Oh, Kay, this box is as clever and pretty as your others, and you deserve to keep it for yourself.
My grandmother & aunt were Cleopatras, so I've been collecting Egyptian themed buttons, fabrics, beads, etc with the intention of someday making gifts for my cousins. I think you've given me a wonderful purpose.
