Tiny Boxes

    Sometimes I wish I was more social or had more 'normal' interests (whatever that is). But then those thoughts quickly pass and I make something completely useless like miniature gift boxes to put under the knitted Charlie Brown Christmas Tree I made last week. Why is it that being tiny instantly makes something cute? I think it would be awesome to have a long-term miniature project like a whole hand-made house filled with hand-made miniature furniture and decorations. It would probably never really be finished. Learning tiny woodworking and painting tiny paintings would be so much fun! Someday I'll do it.
   I made the patterns for these boxes in a free trial of Adobe Illustrator. There are two gingham patterns and two knit print patterns. I'm afraid to look to see how much Illustrator costs, but I think I have to have it. If you would be interested in making some of these yourself, I've made a PDF of the tiny boxes and you can find the knitting pattern on Ravelry. Oh, and there's no tape or glue necessary for the boxes!

  1. That's so cool! It reminds me of my mom; she loves Charlie Brown. She actually has a Charlie Brown Christmas tree that she often sets on the kitchen table as a centerpiece.

  4. This is awesome! Did you make your tree bigger than the pattern, though? Because the pattern says 4 1/2 inches and your tree looks bigger. Is it hard? I'm not too skilled at knitting yet, but I'd love to make this!

    1. Yeah, mine is 7 inches the ways it's shown. But it's not really leaning over as much as it should be. I think I kind of improvised once I got the gist of the pattern and I might have used bigger needles. It is easy though! I bet you could do it!
