Plastic Canvas
Cut 5 squares 34x34 holes
Cut 4 squares 33 x33 holes

Using blue yarn and yarn needle, stitch the granny squares to 4 of the 34hole squares. Use an over-hand stitch and leave the outer "thread" of the plastic canvas square unworked.

After you stitch all 4 granny squares to the 4 PC squares, stitch the 4 squares together to form an open bottom & top box.

Sew the last 34 hole square to the bottom of box.

Sew the last 4 PC squares together as you did the first 4. Place inside the box and whip stitch the layers at the top together. Tack the inside pieces to the outside pieces at the bottom edges of the box.
