Very pretty, Deepika! I was drawn to this item, too, and someone from down under mentioned on a Message Board that she made it. This would be a great way to use tapestry fabric and leftover fancies. I wonder if there is a tassel expert among us. Are there good free instructions online? I know that they are not difficult to make, but I can't readily put my fingers on a reference.

I made a few of these before Christmas. I too fused two layers of fabric together (quilting cottons, in my case) for extra body. But I chickened out on the zipper, as I didn't have a suitable one handy. I made buttonholes down both sides of the opening and laced them together with ribbon

That was me who mentioned it on the message board - I had a ball making some crazy patchwork from clothes I no longer wear, but couldn't bear to toss because of pretty embroidery, or fond memories. The finished pyramid sits on top of my sewing cupboard. Deepika - you're getting into baby clothes for gifts - how about some of these in pink or blue to wrap them? They'd be so useful as storage for tiny socks or whatever afterward too. I plan to do this for the next baby gift I make.

There is a site with tassel instructions and I also saw an adjustable tassel maker at the Puyallap show. Very tempting. Deepika, I'm glad you talked about the zipper. I saw these in Threads also but the whole zipper thing freaks me out...still.

Threads, No.99 (Jan/Feb 2002) has an article on tools for making tassels--as well as instructions for making the most basic form of tassel. But I think the bow looks good, too, as would a little cluster of pretty buttons or beads. Fused fabric is a great idea, too, for having an attractive interior.

Thanks for making this simple. The instructions seemed so wordy to me, I didn't want to attempt, but I'm going to try it. Yours is very nice. I wonder about storage. Do they collapse easily? Maybe make a few to have on hand.

You were brave enough to do the zipper! Guess the rest of us can try too. Can you use the left over side of the zip on another box? This is pretty.

Deepika said...
Star the box is pretty stiff and does not collapse. That's the whole idea to make it have crisp edges. So yes storage will be an issue if you make several. I am still planning to make many more though. These are just too cute. Catherine The zipper application is really very easy. You'll see when you make it. Yes the other half of the zipper can be used but you need a zipper slider. Does anyone know where to find these spare sliders?

I had gone back and forth about these since I got my issue a few months ago. I read this review and flew to the shop and made one up at work out of some scarlette dupioni that was left out with a gold tassle. I am **officially** going ot make up a bunch of these and use them as favors for my wedding this fall !! Thanks SO MUCH for the inspiration !!
