Small Finishes Part 3: Fabric Take Out Box

 I think I shared this last Wednesday for WIP Wed.  Before I committed to the music fabric I wanted to try making one in another fabric.
 Here is the take out box finished (sans handle)

I will admit it is cute.  I've always thought the pattern was cute.  However, it is a lot of time.  And a lot of interfacing.  20 pieces need to be traced and cut out on the interfacing, then fused.  Sewing is the easy part! 
 I am going to rethink my plans for the Christmas Tea and the music fabric.  I won't be making take out boxes.  I don't want to commit to the hours required to make 8 of these.
 Not entirely sure what I'll do with this one yet.  Probably save it for a teacher gift.
 Christmas is coming.....

That's the problem I have with a lot of these little things: when I was 25, I would make them for hours. Now I think: is the best use of my time? Can I make multiples of these quickly? But your box is darling--glad you have one for yourself!
