    Final Product: What You Will Create

    Step 1:
    CC = Color Change
    Front Design Side: hoop stabilizer and place on machine. Stitch CC 1 - this is the placement. After stitching place a piece of cotton batting and then your fabric over top Right Side facing up. Stitch CC 2 - This will tack down the fabric & batting to stabilizer to hold in place. Stitch CC 3 - this is the decorative quilt stitch.

    Step 2:
    Stitch out design, stop after the black outline is stitched and slide your backing fabric RS facing down under your hoop then stitch next CC, this will tack the back in place. Remove hoop and trim excess fabric away being careful not to clip tack down stitches, then return hoop to machine and stitch last CC this is the satin finish stitch. Remember to change your bobbin thread to the same color as your top thread when doing the satin stitch.

    Step 3:
    When creating sides and back, you can add the back fabric at the same time as adding the batting and top fabric so that you will have the decorative stitching on both sides of the 3 pieces. For the back - if you would like a saying added: stitch it last before you remove design from hoop.

    Step 4:
    Putting box together:
    1 - Take the front and line up one of your sides and starting at the top, zig-zag the 2 pieces together. Then add the back and other side in the same manner until it looks like the picture below.

    Step 5:
    Next match up bottom to bottom front back side and zig-zag together.

    Step 6:
    Turn box so side top matches side bottom and zig-zag together.

    Step 7:
    Continue and turn again until all 4 sides are connected to the bottom.

    Step 8:
    Next match tops of side and zig-zag starting at top to the bottom and you’re done. Work the shape a little til its straightened out and stands up nice.

    Step 9:
    Cut open buttons wholes and add ribbon for handles and you’re done!

    Meet The Author: Bonnieta Tatro
    Hi! I am Bonnie, I was born in West Virginia, but raised in Cleveland Ohio. Graphics digitizer, commercial embroiderer & business owner. After living from Maine to Alaska in the Navy, we have settled in the country, so I have space for my three rescued alpacas. I began sewing at the age of 7, never learned to use a pattern so nearly failed home economics in junior high! For over 22 years I designed and created porcelain dolls and their costumes, ranging from antique reproductions to modern style dolls. I also sculpted several of my own dolls and taught classes. I have been married almost 26 years now! We have two sons. Both boys, Daniel 23 and Jason 21, were home schooled and are currently attending college. My husband and I are active in our church and mission programs as he currently chairs a partnership of churches working in West Africa. We have also trained and led young adult mission teams working in Peru the past seven years. My family is an active supporter of the local Boy Scout troops, having raised two Eagle scouts. I occasionally travel out of the country with my husband while he goes to meet with other governments. While he works I get to see all the sites and museums :0) We have been to Germany, United Kingdom, Netherlands and Africa. I am looking forward to Sweden this spring. My digitizing “career” actually began 7 years ago when I purchased a home embroidery machine and software package. I self learned the software as I found out after they had no one that really new anything about the software they were selling so I became proficient in a very short time and the local store asked me to teach classes. This went on for a few years while I expanded my knowledge of the industry and determined it was time to obtain a commercial machine and software package and in doing so I started my embroidery business. I do custom embroidery for local businesses and home embroiderer’s and digitize for I enjoy working with Shawn and Linda as I am able to be more creative with my digitizing and expand on my ideas. My husband supported this “business” change, as I sold my doll business and “focused” on embroidery, but he does think sometimes that he has lost me to the computer!
