FSL Rose Gift Box

These are the instructions on how to make the FSL Rose Gift Box.

The designs from our FSL Rose Gift Box are embroidered as regular FSL. You can read about this in our General Guidelines.

To embroider this set we used 40-weight polyester embroidery threads; you can also use rayon or cotton (50- or 60- weight) embroidery threads. If you use cotton embroidery thread, we recommend to clean the machine after embroidering every part because cotton threads, even ones specially made for embroidery machines, leave a lot of lint.

Some points to remember from the General Guidelines:
Use Vilene water soluble stabilizer;
Use the same thread for the upper and bobbin to get two-sided embroidery.
DO NOT embroider several designs in one hoop.

The finished size of the small box is about 3 1/2" wide and 1 1/2" high; and the large box - about 5" wide and 2" high.

You will need: embroidery thread, water-soluble Vilene stabilizer, invisible thread for assembly and hot-fix crystals (optional).

Step One: Embroider the box's lid and bottom once; embroider the side parts four times each. The wide parts are for the bottom, the narrower parts, with frills, are for the lid.

Step Two: After you embroider the necessary parts, rinse the stabilizer and leave to air dry. Press all parts with steam.


Step Three: Stitch the side parts together in pairs - you'll get 2 longs sides for the bottom and two long sides for the lid.
If you want to decorate the box with beads or hot-fix crystals, do this now.

Step Four: Take the bottom part and one long side for the bottom. Using invisible thread and zig-zag stitch, join the parts as shown. Work from the inside of the box.

Step Five: Repeat Step Five for the second side. Join the open seams - the upper seam stitch from the inside, and the bottom seam stitch from the outside of the box.
