I’ve been wanting to make a little boxy pouch in this series, but I had so much trouble finding a free tutorial for one I liked and hadn’t made before! Finding a good boxy pouch pattern isn’t easy—so many have raw edges inside, which kind of drives me a little crazy.
I came across these little Lilly cosmetic bags by Lala Fab when browsing zipper pouch ideas and had to make them! The pattern is free, but it’s in German. My German is not good and I still managed to muddle through, so if you have some experience with zippers I think you can handle it.
So this time I wanted to make something smaller that would both stand up on its own and open wide enough that I easily reach inside. I came across the Open Wide pouch and thought I’d give it a shot! I made the smallest size in the pattern.
For this pouch, I wanted to make something that would be like a pencil case that would hold some pens and markers separately from a notebook or sketchbook. I came across this Close at Hand case and thought it looked super cute!
Several years ago I came across a super cute pattern for this apple or orange-shaped sewing kit. I started the apple immediately but it wasn’t turning out as I wanted so I abandoned it. Fast-forward to this year and I decided to give it another try, though this time I thought I’d do the orange instead of the apple.
So I decided to make another doctor-style bag. This one is by the same designer as The Cube bag that I made earlier; it is a much larger version. The idea was that it would hold a lot of my misc. stuff for retreats and sew days as it looked pretty big!
