Make-it-Joe variety stash box is the ultimate soft craft surprise stash box packed full of fabrics in a variety of designs, weights, sizes, mixed with bits and bobs and more.

I've got four delightful projects that are solely created to "cheer you up" this holiday season. These are great projects to use up your fabric scraps, remnants or any leftover fabrics that you have on hands.
Each project is pretty simple in constructions, with materials that you likely already have in your stash, hence there is no need to purchase additional items.
Since this is a festive season, I used some of my Christmas fabric stash, this is the "Scandinavian Christmas" collection from PBS fabrics that I got from Etsy.
Happy Sewing, and Happy Holiday.. cheers!!
Update: I changed the measurements of panel 3 to 5 1/2" x 4 1/2" , to accommodate differences when installing the zippers, after you finished installing both front zipper pockets, measure the height of your front exterior, trim off the bottom part (if any excess) so that your front exterior panel will measure 8" tall

Please note that this project is designed for cotton quilting fabric. If you opt for heavier fabric, you need to adjust the interfacing accordingly, you may leave out the fusible fleece, or leave out all the interfacing altogether depending on the thickness of your fabric. I do not recommend very heavy fabric for this project.
