I’m always on the look out for craft projects that can serve the dual purpose of using up some of my fabric stash whilst making a lovely gift. I’m particularly drawn to bags and purses, and this cute little box pouch caught my eye some time ago. It only took me a few hours (and I’m slow!) to run this one up, and I’ve already cut and pressed fabric for another-watch this space! It’s big enough to use as a pencil case, makeup bag, or for transporting a small craft project. The only slight niggle I have with this particular pattern is that the inner seams are exposed 😦 This rather spoiled the nice fabric I had chosen as lining. I’ve since tracked down this alternative version, which would require a bit more work, but has a much more professional finish.
