Cutest Little Box Bag Evah!!

I’ve been wanting to make one of these for years.  Ever since I got one from a student that I’d helped out at Berkeley. It’s held all those small things that have a tendency to drop into that black hole that all bags have.  That original bag is long since gone and I cannot tell you how many lipsticks, chapsticks, Lego minifigures, and sewing notions I have lost for MONTHS in my bags.

And finally, finally, I found a method and figured out a ratio for making these really awesome little box bags.  I had some time yesterday and spare zipper and some fabric leftovers that I’ve hanging onto for years because they are so cool I just can’t throw them away.  A tutorial will be coming when I have more time and I’m not getting ready for our annual Accessories Trunk Show. (December 14th and 15th!  2:30-6pm both days! Cate’s House! Bring your friends and your gift lists!!)

In the meantime,  CUTENESS!

A nice neat top zip that give plenty of room to put things in and get things out.

And since I’ve figured out the magic ratio for the fabric sizes I can make them larger squares or longer rectangles.  And I *will* be making more to have at the Show.  I took this into H’s school today and the teachers kept petting it like it was a kitten.  Come early to the show because these are going to go fast!
