THE SOFT BOX

I made this soft box for Angela a while ago and it seemed to catch your eye.


I have made another and hope you can follow the way I made it, there is not a lot to it really, so here we go...

First you need to make four Postcards -  6" x 4"
you can make them whatever size you like actually but I like to make Postcards so.....
They are NOT using the pelmet vilene inside so as to be soft...
 You also need two ends, 4" square, again no PV...
 I haven't put the instructions for making these as you can see from previous posts how I make the cards, just leave out the stiffener folks...
Lay all six pieces out like this...
 Then I use monofilament thread and butting the edges together, I put the machine onto the widest zigzag possible and stitch the pieces together. Basically that is it really, I told you it was easy peasy didn't I! OK it is a bit fiddly getting the bits together, you could do it by hand of course, but you know me, under the machine it goes everytime. Here is the finished soft box...
 inside view for you...
 inside are the postcards made with the voile, they fit perfectly...
another job done.
YESSSSS
