Box #2 is called “Egypt”. It was fun to work on this one since the box gets narrower as you work, the rows gets shorter and pretty soon you have a complete box.
Not much trouble to speak of. I tried the new and improved hem method by downloading the pdf from Julia’s site. It was a lot easier to make the hem following these new instructions. The book has some errors in it so you have to visit her website for those corrections as well. Since this book was published she has come up with some very cool new box designs that can be purchased from her website.
I’m happy with how it turned out and I look forward to start working on the next box.
