Boxy Pouch Bag - Tutorial

Boxy Pouch Bag - Tutorial
Is a Boxy Pouch: Closed is a boxy pouch but open with the flaps turned down is a basket.
Use options: school supplies, make-up, jewelry, medications, sewing supplies etc.

  Pattern Details
The finished pouch measure is: 7"W x 5"H x 5"D
This is not a pattern, is just a very reduced tutorial

 You need about a fat quarter each of:
- 1 Exterior fabric
- 1 Lining fabric
- 1 Fleece Vilene H640
- Pellon SF101 Shape-Flex
- One zipper (#3) at least 15"( I like to use longer zippers and trim to fit)
- Two cursors (optional)
- Two rivets (optional) 

Cut the following:
- 13" wide by 20 ½” height:
From the exterior, lining, interfacing and fusible fleece (the 13" edge is getting sewn to the zipper). Keep in mind that we'll be using a 1/4" seam allowance unless noted otherwise, and we're back stitching at the beginning and end of each seam.  

Note:  This is just a very reduced tutorial as there are many boxy pouch tutorials, it's just to teach you how to create this most beautiful shape. Not my own project, only the measures. I learned in a live class. I did not use the interfacing in the lining because my fabric was very thick. I used a zipper with 2 cursors, but it is optional.
The finished pouch measure is approximately: 7”W x 5”H x 5”D

Trace and cut all the pieces and fuse the interfacing to the wrong side of the fabrics. Fuse the fleece to the exterior fabric.

 1 - Now to install the zipper. The zipper teeth should be face down on the right side of the fabric. Then, place the lining over the zipper, right side toward the right side of the other fabric and stitch. The zipper is to longer, this will be trimmed later.

2 - Then sew the layers together using a ¼” seam allowance. Turn (press if desired) the fabrics away from zipper (the fabrics should now be wrong sides together) and topstitch 1/4".

3 - Now, repeat the same process from the other side. The zipper teeth should be face down on the right side of the fabric. Then, place the lining over the zipper, right side toward the right side of the other fabric and pin/clip. 

4 - Stitch from edge to edge at 1/4".
5 - Unzip all the zipper and top stitching at 1/4".

6 - We now insert a cursor on one side.
7 - Carefully and keeping the fabric centered, insert the cursor on the other side.
8 - Then make a small seam on the 2 sides of the zipper to keep the cursors in place.

9 - Turn your pouch wrong side out and mark the middle of the lining. Separate the exterior fabric from the lining fabric (you have formed two tubes as I show in the photo). Make sure that the marking you have done is aligned on top of the zipper, with the lining on top of the exterior fabric. Do not forget to leave the zipper a little open.
10 - Pin or clip the raw edges.  Repeat for the other side of the pouch.
11 - Using a 1/4" seam allowance, sew along the one side of the flattened pouch.

12 - Repeat the same process on the other side, leaving an opening to turn the pouch.
13 - Make sure to keep the lining panel out of the way (see photo below) and finish sewing your exterior piece. Trim the corners and the excess of the zipper.

14 - Gently pull the pouch wrong side out (lining) through the hole.
15 - Make sure to poke out every corner so that your pouch has a nice boxy shape. Pin the opening in the lining and then sew it closed with a very small seam allowance or use glue.

16 - Next, we are going to box out the corners.  Fold each corner so that the end seam and the fold on the side line up with each other and pin.
17 - From the top, mark on the both sides a distance of 3 ½” and draw a line.
18 - This is where you will sew to create the sides of the box.

19 - Repeat on all four corners.
20 - Then fold the four corners toward the middle and fasten with rivets or make a small seam. Turn the pouch to the right side. Then fold out to create that beautiful shape and it's finished.
