The Christmas Box - pattern

Imagine everyone’s surprise when they open this gorgeous patchwork box to discover the contents? Will yours be filled with precious ornaments or chocolates – can you guess what I keep in mine?

A pretty stitched edge that gives the feel of lace, festive applique shapes and some simple embroidery come together to create this fun zippered box.
