I stopped in the shop the last time I was in the area and Nedra happened to be there. I was so glad to finally meet her. She was so pleasant and was so willing to get me a kit to make the Wonder Box on my own. Even after all of the hastle of getting things ready for my kit, I left the shop without my pattern. Nedra tracked me down to let me know or else I would still be waiting to make mine. She was so nice to take it home with her. I just had to pick it up at her home before I left St. George. Thank you, Nedra for taking such good care of me.
This is the wonder box that all the hype is about. It kind of reminds me of a miniture bean bag chair or a very plushy pillow!
It has a top and a bottom. This is a bag that can keep foods cold or hot for hours. Yes, they really work. The bags are feeled with polystryrean beads, the kind used for bean bag chairs. They are made from mid-weight fabric. This is Nedra's bag that's on display at Quiltedworks. This is my cute Amy Butler fabric that Nedra helped me pick out and then we went to work measuring the beads for my bag. Kind of a messy job, but it was well worth it. The beads come in a huge, huge bag.
Sticky little things, they cling to everything, even your hands!
Nedra doing the measuring. It takes about 40, 4 cup scoops to feel both the top and bottom. Now that's alot of beads.
Here's my finished wonderbox. Isn't she a cutie? So simple to make, it only took about an hour and a half from start to finish. Now that's the kind of sewing I like to do. This box will hold large bowls, lots of small bowls, gallons of milk, casserole dishes or just about anything you want to keep cold or hot.
