… 144 boxed corners later.

36 totes for our church’s ladies’ retreat. Check!
Boxed corners give an everyday tote depth and dimension but it can add so much work to an already heavy load. I usually align the side and bottom seams, pin, measure, sew and cut. I found a much quicker process for this job.
For a 4″ boxed corner, I cut out a cardboard 2″ x 2″ square. I traced it onto the bottom corners of the sewn fabric, including the seam allowance,¬†and cut them out.
I opened it up, aligned the side and bottom seams and stitched away, using my presser foot as the seam allowance. Done!
