Embroidery: Stitched Boxes
I’ve been making boxes from plastic canvas for about thirty years now. They are great fun to make, the 10-mesh plastic canvas is inexpensive and the main yarn I use is synthetic double-knitting yarn. The boxes are quick to complete, are very portable projects (once that canvas has been cut to size), and make great gifts.
Here are some photos of my boxes, there are more on Flickr
Here are instructions to make the two boxes shown below:
