I did it!! I made a storage cube!

Here is my first storage cube.  This floral was bought somewhere in the Middle East and I think it is Japanese cotton.  It almost feels silky and that is why I have not used it.  I had some interfacing and used it and it worked beautifully!  I will make another one with the fabs switched.  This IS addictive and I LOVE it!!  Get the tutorial here. Ooh, I hope this works as it will be the first time that I link!!  I love this blog world!

Nice cube. I know what you mean about hanging on to a fabric, good on you for using it, it looks lovely. Now that you are linking out I will let you know how to write it so that when someone clicks on the link it opens a new page and that way people get to still stay on your page IYKWIM LOL! Nice to find your blog.

Alia for the label I got a 1/4 yard of clear vinyl tablecloth sheeting from safeer or some little shop in Ghubra, it is better to get the thicker stuff. For thinner stuff just keep some of those plastic bags that sometimes underwear, clothing, toys come in as they work well too. Second thing about links when you have posted a link then go back into the Edit HTML tab at the top next to the compose tab. Go to the text where you entered the link (its a lot of mumble jumble before the "Name" of the link e.g. Crazy Mom Quilts. it will look something like xyz.com/">crazy.... ok so inbetween " and > insert this text target="blank" and that is it. sounds alot to do but once you have done it once or twice it becomes natural ;-)

Ok. I tried but don't understand exactly what it is supposed to do. I linked the amazon book and then just hit the back button. What you are trying to teach me is to have the link open in a whole new page??? I tried looking it up but got so frustrated with all the info and not getting anywhere. Thanks and please try again to explain to me. I really appreciate it!
