box bag

A smidge of sewing for me snuck into the presents! This is a small bag from the box bag tutorial from the Drago[knit]fly blog. This is really a practice run to make one as a gift, but this trial version came out so nicely that I'm swapping things in my zip pouch that I keep in my purse right into it.

Here are two more views of it:



If you make it:

At step #4, I marked the thirds but then found it easiest just sew down the entire length of each side. I used the 1/3 markings to box out the corners, though.

I left off the handle, and used quilting cotton with some weft interfacing. I might use fusible fleece interfacing for the next one I make, since this one collapses very easily.

I really like this. I've just saved the tutorial, I can see about ten uses for these right off the bat. Thanks. Merry Christmas! K
