Many years ago I organised a sew day for our W.I. group. I arranged a room in our local pub and organised a pub lunch. About 15 ladies turned up and we had great fun making these lovely boxes…and of course enjoyed the delicious  lunch. Everyone finished their gorgeous boxes to take home that day.

Aren’t they just beautiful?

Fast forward a few years and am still making boxes, these are a couple of my birdie boxes to hold a box of tissues…

They are great fun to make, the hardest part is deciding which of your favourite fabrics to use.


My latest box is hexagonal, these are gorgeous when made up in your ‘special’ fabrics.

As I write this blog, I messaged the W.I. girls and they seem keen to do another this space!
