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 let's take a look at this storage cube: 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:

Back to our project - this is what you need to do to get your own felt storage box: draw 4 lines, sew 4 straight stitches, cut off 4 corners. Done. It doesn't get any easier, folks! So, here's the how-to.

How To Make A Storage Box


1) Grab a piece of sturdy felt (I used a 2 mm thick stiffened felt piece) and draw a tic-tac-toe grid onto it.

2)  That's drawing 4 lines, like this.


3) Fold diagonally, so you get a triangle.

4) Pin to fix.
This is the single thing you REALLY have to do right: match the marking lines to be EXACTLY on top of each other. Nothing a carefully placed pin couldn't solve.



5) You'll stitch 2 straight seams.

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


6) Now, open. Spread the two opposing lids, this is what you have now.

7) Pin again on the other two corners and stitch again: 2 straight lines.



8) What you have now is this. Cut off all the 4 corners that are sticking out, and you'll get this:


Yeey!

If you're tempted, repeat the proces on all 4 remaining scraps: they would make really cute tiny felt boxes. Think jewellery cubes! :)



9) Start decorating your felt box if you feel like.


And if you want to add a bunch of felt flowers like these, you can use one of my first two felt flower tutorials (These are the easiest felt flowers you can possibly make!)
