These Fabric Storage Boxes are fully lined, machine sewn, they store flat when not in use, stack when buttoned up, and can be washed. What more could you need?
They come in three sizes, however, the designer has included instructions so that you can make them any size that you wish.

Skill level: The designer rates her project as suitable for the very beginner bag/box making sewist. These boxes are easy and quick to make helped by the excellent step-by-step instructions with lots of color photos.
When you have finished making your very own Fabric Storage Boxes they will measure approximately:-
Large box = 5″ (12.5 cm) by 5” (12.5 cm).
Medium box = 4″ (10 cm) by 4” (10 cm).
Small box = 3″ (7.5 cm) by 3” (7.5 cm).
What’s needed to make these Fabric Storage Boxes:-
0.5 yard (50 cm) of non directional cotton exterior fabric is enough for all 3 boxes.
0.5 yard (50 cm) of non directional cotton lining exterior fabric is enough for all 3 boxes.
A piece 18″ (45 cm) by 22” (55 cm) of heavy-weight, fusible interfacing such as Fast 2 Fuse Heavy, Pellon 72F Peltex 2 Sided Fusible or Pellon 71F Peltex if you prefer one sided fusible, however, then you won’t be able to fuse the lining for that crisp look.
0.5 yard (50 cm) of lightweight fusible interfacing such as Vilene G700 woven fusible, Pellon SF101Shape-Flex or similar.
Six buttons 3/4” (1.9 cm) in diameter or bigger, they need to be this big to close the gap between the folds, to not let the elastic show. Two buttons are used for each box.
24” (60 cm) round elastic, slimmer is better, or cut up thin round elastic hair bands to get colors to match your fabric. 8” (20 cm) is used for each box.
