Excellent Cute Bag, Great Gift  September 10, 2013


I love this little boxy pouch, it was the first one I've ever made. The instructions are fairly clear to someone with experience, just persevere through the finicky parts where you make the boxed corners.

Good So cute  August 15, 2013


I was a little skeptical that I could get this to actually look good but it turned out great. My only minor disappointment was the lining doesn't sit flat.

Good Hello Kitty Boxy Pouch  August 12, 2013


I am a beginner so I constantly referred back to the tutorial. The instructions were confusing when it came to sewing the zipper. I had to refer to other zipper tutorial to perform this task. Also, when it came to the end after turning your exterior and interior fabrics out, I had to refer to a site on how to close the opening (ladder stitch). Again, I am a beginner, so I would have liked those added instructions.

Excellent Easy if you follow the instructions CLOSELY!  August 4, 2013


This is a great pattern. I sewed it in about three hours today (including some un-sewing when I failed to read the directions thoroughly). I think that it will definitely be easier the second time around. Yes, there will be a second time around, because this is totally cute, economical to make and functional to use! Enjoy!

Good Pretty easy to follow  May 3, 2013


This pattern was fairly easy to follow. I found a few changes that I had to make while in the process of sewing, but overall the sizes were spot on.

Average Boxie Review - Tab Issue  April 21, 2013


I had been dying to make a boxie zippered pouch for quite some time, and I thought this looked like the best tutorial. It was totally straightforward, and the bag came out way bigger than I thought.

2 things I made note of though:

The measurements indicated by the tabs is too small, and since they get folded so many times they probably don't need any interfacing.

If you want the bag to have any body either use a really heavy interfacing on the exterior fabric, ...

Average No Guts Boxie Pouch  March 27, 2013


I found one section of the instructions hard to understand, however, once I worked that part out, it all came together quite quickly. I'm very pleased with how the bag turned out and will use the tutorial to make another.

Okay No Guts Boxie Pouch  January 28, 2013


This past weekend I made 3 No Guts Boxie Pouches. Am pairing them with zippered wipes cases.
The NGBP is fairly easy to make. I learned it is necssary to be very precise when measuring & trimming the 8 corners that are created. If they are not precise the pouch does not line up prefectly.

Excellent Great pattern  January 13, 2013


I am just starting sewing again and need a refresher on working with my machine and techniques.

This is a great beginner project with very clear and easy to follow directions.

Excellent Brilliant bag  November 19, 2012


I loved this bag - made for my daughter as her handmade Christmas gift (she gets a handmade gift every year).

I don't know what she will use it for - pencils, camera case - we shall see, but I know she will love it (especially the owls).

Easy pattern to follow, taking it nice and slow. Sewing the 8 corners to make the box shape was a bit of a challenge - trying to keep the lining fabric square, but got there.

I love this bag and can see more of them in my ...

Excellent Quick and Easy  August 17, 2012


This is the second project that I've actually FINISHED. I had to re-read the instructions a couple of times to understand what to do. Thay might have just been my lack of knowleged and experience though. Once I got in to it was easy, i did mess up on the zipper 4 times in row! But it's compeleted now and I'm very happy with it.

Excellent Fun Boxy Pouch  June 27, 2012


I loved this pattern. I made two at the same time (one to keep and one to gift). Directions were very clear and I was a bit unsure as I was going along but saw it all come together towards the end. Going over all the layers at the zipper was tough but I know it is secure. Would recommend to anyone. Thanks for sharing!!

Excellent This is the cutest pouch  June 15, 2012


I've been looking for a pouch like this for months, and then ran into some neat fabric and decided to have a go for myself. The pattern is great and the photos in each step are so helpful.

Good Awesome Pouch!  May 23, 2012


This is a really great tutorial for beginners or someone who needs to work on specific areas. I, for example, needed to work on zippers. Im really terrible with zippers. The instructions we're easy to follow and included step by step photos. The only problem I had was with the tabs. It could totally be by fault, but the cuze size for the tabs seemed way too small and I just could not get them to work for me. So I scrapped them. But I love the bag anyway and will be giving it to a friend as a ...

Excellent Good easy project  May 19, 2012


Good instructions but the fabric does get a little bulky in the end stages. The bag is really forgiving of mistakes so it's a good project to learn on or sharpen your skills.
