Birds Of The Meadow ~ fabric storage boxes
– Finished sizes – 6 1/2″ x 8″ and 8 1/2″ x 10

– This One Day in May project offers lots of technique variation, with a lovely combination of stitchery, patchwork and sweet applique birds. Each bird features a dimensional wing and tail. Make 1 or both! Perfect as a gift or for dressing up your sewing nook.

– The applique and stitchery panels are interchangeable and may be used for either size box. The sides of both boxes are pieced and quilted, and the feature panel of the larger box has a patchwork border. The back of the larger box also features a handy pocket to store some of those smaller and easily mislaid notions and tools.

– The “Birds of the Meadow” pattern includes a full sized pattern sheet and comprehensive, step by step photographic and illustrated instruction.
