Basic Skills Necessary:

  • Experienced beginner sewing skills
  • Basic knowledge in using a zipper foot

Pattern Description:

This bag set was the perfect combination to satisfy my addiction to fabric and sewing and my love for boxes. By trial and error and many, many box bags later I came up with these totally cute and functional bags that actually nest inside one another!
The pattern includes instructions on how to make three sizes of box bags and then bonus directions for a cute little "Mini Diddy" box bag that has a different shape than the other three.
These bags are fully lined with no exposed seams.
You will love all the colored photos that accompany each step, making instructions easy to follow and understand. This pattern was recently updated (May 2016) to add a few more photos, tricks and hints
The PDF is 9 pages and also includes:
* Bonus instructions for adding the optional handle
* Fabric cutting layout diagram
* Bag possibilities using only 2 fat quarters

I hope you enjoy making these bags as much as I do!
Watch out, they can be very addicting and everyone you know is going to want one!
