Did you know that it is possible to turn two flat pieces of fabric into a dimensional tote or bag with one little tweak? The secret: boxed corners! If you’ve ever wanted to learn how to sew a boxed corner (also referred to as a box corner) but have never known where to start, today’s session of Creativity U will cover all of the ins and outs of boxed corners.
As with the first installment of Creativity U, something that initially began here at PS over the summer, the full boxed corner tutorial will be available as a printable PDF. (You can get the full details for what Creativity U is all about here.)
