After weeks of my obsession with all sorts of cute little fabric bins (yes, you probably know them: KAIA, LEA and a few more to come, but shhhhsh!!) - I realized those fabric bins were all over the house. Time to take a break from my fabric stash, I said. And a break I took.

But there it was, the lovely messy pile of felt I have been neglecting for a while. If you are at least a bit like me (#sewingaddict), you know what happened next. Something like this:

I could not, for the love of life, resist from making something new out of that rainbow colored pile of felt in my storage box.

Now credits for the felt box!! I found this great idea at the Oomanoot blog. It's here at this link, a great step-by-step tutorial to make the felt box from scratch, with measuring instructions and all:

Basically, you take a square piece of felt and sew four straight lines. And that's about it! You'll have tons of fun with this super easy project!

And you'll probably recognize the felt flowers. If you'd like to make these (easiest felt flowers you can possibly make!), here is my Rolled Felt Flowers Tutorial:

This is what I took away from the project:

The single thing you REALLY have to do right is matching the marking lines to be EXACTLY on top of each other. Nothing a carefully placed pin couldn't solve.

See, two straight stitches - and half of the sewing was done!

The other two stitching lines can be a bit tricky if you don't pin. So do. Pin! 

Just remember, the line on the top layer should lie DIRECTLY OVER the line on the bottom layer. Other than that, you can make the project in your sleep. Bravo, Rina! Now, before you pull out your scissors, head over to Rina's blog to get detailed measurements and directions to make your own felt box. You'll also learn what to make out of the remaining scraps.
