Mini Triangular Boxes




I found these cute little triangular pouches via Pinterest a while ago and pinned them to my Things I want to make board.

I had just a little time yesterday for sewing so was looking for a quic kproject and these fit the bill perfectly.

The tutorial is by Needling Things and she made these pouches as thread catchers.

It's a great little tutorial, and is basically a kind of fabric origami bag as you just make a double sided triangle using two pieces of fabric, then fold and stitch the edges together before adding the buttons. Nice and easy!

I made one using  left over scraps from sundresses.

I actually used this same combination of fabrics when I made another fabric origami bag a while ago:


I also made another triangular box with the cute cat fabric I got from Wholeport here, and a scrap of plain red.

They are such cute little boxes that could be used for all sorts of things..

I'm going to give these two boxes to my daughters who I'm sure have lots of little trinkets that they can fill them with!!

What would you use boxes like this for?

I shall be linking this post to many of the fabulous linky parties whose pretty buttons can be found on the bottom of this page, and whose direct links can be found on my linky party page.

  1. So adorable! I would use them for storing the things I pull out of the kids' pockets before their clothes go in the washing machine. If they ever remember that the treasures are missing, they can do a chore to get a chance to peek in the boxes! We'll see if tha works . . .

    1. Oh that is such a great idea Niki! I think I'll make more and place them strategically around the house so pockets can be emptied and things picked up and put in them!!
