Juice Box FPP Pattern

Well, I hope it was worth a few days of wait! Here is my FREE FPP pattern this month, Juice Box. Now this one might be a little tricky. I don't write fabric requirements for FPP patterns, as I tend to make the with scraps, however, this pattern needs a lot of background fabric. I happened to have 1/4 yard of black Ruby Star Society "Acroma" fabric that was left over from another project that I used for the background here and it was plenty, so that is my recommendation for background fabric; 1/4 yard or a fat quarter. My second tip for this one is to use contrasting fabrics to "outline" your juice box giving it a more 3 dimensional look. Tip number 3, and you may not like this one....this pattern has a Y seam. I know, I know, but I couldn't get around it and this is a large enough FPP pattern to where it isn't scary. For your Y seam, I recommend tearing out some of your paper before joining those sections together to reduce the bulk. Finally, have fun with this one! There is a 4" 6" opportunity to have some fussy cut fun in the middle of this block. So if there is a bog 'ole fun print that you have been saving for, who knows what, here is your chance! Alternatively, shrink this down 75-50% and get crazy with this fussy cut pieces you've been saving. As always, tag me in your makes so I can share your awesome work!
