'Inchie' box

While planning the probably final piece for the E project I had a go at making the infamous 'inchies' I keep reading about and seeing in swaps.
As I was making them I began to see a little box so that is what I made but with an Ancient Egyptian theme so it could fit into the project.
And the finished mini box.


Didn't much like using an inch so it is a 3cm cube box - doesn't have the same ring to it though.

Now onto the final piece! heard that before I think!!
Going to cut lots of triangles in bought, painted, dyed, printed fabric to create an Ancient Egyptian quilt.

Oh and the snow has gone - a 'here today, gone tomorrow ' it was.

What a super little box, Shirley, I love the metal decorations, I can't begin to think how you achieved them! The modelling on them is wonderful.
Looking forward to seeing your triangular quilt it sounds like a nightmare construction project !!!!

What a wonderful little box Shirley--so imaginative also.

I like boxes! I think I've heard these referred to as 'Big inchies' but that extra half centimetre makes a huge difference!

What a great little box!! I like the idea of the inchies being "just a little" bigger too.
