Easy Box with Snaps

Another project using snaps like the mini bag with snaps above.

"It's a Snap!" (easy box) from MyLittleMochi.typepad.com

I teach a sewing club, usually attended by 4th-8th grade girls, but I was pleased when a couple of 8th grade boys showed up this trimester!

They loved the "It's a snap!" project. Since we are doing all hand sewing, they did back stitch to sew the circles together, then top-stitched after turning. Very successful project for everyone, even the 4th graders who had never picked up a needle!

Editor's Note:
This is a great project for learning how to add snaps to a project. Once you cut out your two circles and sew them together with right sides together, turn right sides out and sew a topstitch. Then add your snaps alternating.
