0.5 yard (50cm) - Lining: Non directional cotton exterior fabric is enough for all 3 boxes.
18 x 22” (45x55cm) - Heavy-weight, fusible interfacing such as Fast 2 Fuse Heavy, Pellon 72F Peltex 2 Sided Fusible or Pellon 71F Peltex if you prefer one sided fusible, however, then you won’t be able to fuse the lining for that crisp look.
0.5 yard (50cm) - Lightweight fusible interfacing such as Vilene G700 woven fusible, Pellon SF101 Shape-Flex or similar.
6 - Buttons 3/4” (1.9cm) in diameter or bigger, they need to be this big to close the gap between the folds, to not let elastic show. 2 buttons are used for each box.
24”(60cm) - Round elastic, slimmer is better, or cut up thin round elastic hair bands to get colors to match your fabric. 8” (20cm) is used for each box.
