If you need to trace for your embroidery or applique, you will love this project! This tutorial shows you how to make your own Homemade Light Box using items from around the house. No more stretching up to the window to trace, and no bulky item left to store away. This DIY light box is made of three basic components you probably have lying around. Best of all, when you're done using them, each piece will be undamaged and can be returned to its original use. Read these creative embroidery tips and make a light box of your own.
