How to Sew Boxed Corners - video

Why do I need to know how to sew boxed corners? I don’t even know what a boxed corner is!

Well – it’s a simple way of adding thickness to a fabric shape. It’s what makes this mini tote bag fat instead of flat.

And it’s what gives these little mice nice fat bottoms.

I describe how to do this in the pattern, but someone asked for a video to help clarify the process.

Ask and you shall receive!

See how easy it is?

Here are some of the patterns that use this technique.

Happy sewing!



  1. Thank you for the video! That makes so much more sense to me than trying to figure it out from print format =).

    You amaze me and I’m so comfortable watching your videos. You seem like a friend. I’m a beginner who started sewing after a fulfilling nursing career of 33 yrs. I became basically terminally ill and had to undergo a pancreatic transplant that left me a prisoner to my home. I decided to learn to sew to help me adjust to my new life. You have been instrumental in helping me cope. Thank you, Wendy, and please keep the beginner tutorials coming…
