it's always difficult to know what to make for my dad. he's a "fixer" and is constantly tinkering with things around the house. i thought that a box bag might come in handy for the odd job here and there.
I used Drago[knit]fly's tutorial. instead of doing the cut off the triangles thing, which never seems to work well for me, i cut rectangles out of the sides instead, making it easy to line up the boxy seam corners. i used some alexander henry heath for the exterior. as always, i have trouble coming up with manly fabric combinations. hopefully this is ok.
for the interior, i used one of the fat quarters i got from spoonflower. this fabric reminds me of my dad. he used to own and operate a gas station in a tiny little town, so i bet he utilized a sign very much like this once upon a time.
