These cute little boxes are part of Sew Sweetness newest pattern, Kismet Trinket Boxes! This new pattern is part of Sara’s ‘Value Series’ of $5 patterns, and has less than 20 steps. With 2 shapes and 3 sizes each you can pick what you’d like to sew (sew all the sizes!!) I bet once you make the first one, you’ll agree. They’re addictive!
I made the small circle and small square for my first go-round. The small square- 5” long x 3-1/2” tall x 3” deep and the small round – 12” circumference x 4” tall. If you choose to make the set of 3 in both shapes you’ll notice they nest into each other nicely for storage. And I have to say that these pretties make the best scrap buster projects because they all use less than a FQ!
After a few pattern re-reads I was able to sew these up in about an hour and a half. I used a sewing fabric I’ve had hoarded away from JoAnn’s so it’s a nice cotton weight. I think you could make them in other assorted fabric weights, but keep in mind the smaller ones need more “hankering” with so i’d try a larger shape first and see how it does.
Kismets would be a great pattern for a sewist comfortable with sewing curves an with zippers. The Lid was the most challenging for me, but once I got a feel for how it goes together it was fine. I suggest the use of fabric clips, scissors to snip fabric or zipper material slightly to help with various curves and handsewing needles for sewing an opening closed.
