I was playing around the other day with a new-to-me way of doing boxed corners. Want to see?
Usually, boxed corners are made by pinching the sides and bottom together to form a corner and then stitching and trimming the resulting triangle so that the box or bag has a flat bottom and can stand on it's own.
Instead of using that method, which is worked from the wrong side of the box or bag, I boxed the corners on the outside.
Folding the corners up in this way makes for an interesting detail on the outside of the basket. I stitched the corners to the sides and then hid the stitches under a small button.
So, if you're looking for a new or different way to finish the bottoms of your fabric boxes or bags, give this method a try!
