    It’s been close to fourty years since I put a zipper in anything. I just hated working with them, until now. It wasn’t as difficult as I remembered. Like getting back up on a bike you might say. Yes, I made my first boxy bag this morning after coming to this site. I made the strap a wee bit longer, long enough to fit around my wrist. I used scrap material, green stripes for this one and a green print inside in place of the heavy canvas, just to see how it would come out. Maybe some spray starch will stiffin it up a wee bit…..

    Hi there!
    I am going to be making one of the boxy bags for my daughter for her bday and fill it with all kinds of goodies. Great tutorial. I did have one question though. I see on the materials list we need a piece of heavyweight canvas, outer print and fusible fleece. I don’t recall seeing in the directions where you fused any of the pieces. Maybe it’s just written and not show in a pic. Hmm, if you could shed some light on this for me, that would be great. I am going to look through the tutorial again.
    Thanks in advance

    yea Barb, I turned it into a purchase pattern because so many were wanting to use it to sell small quantities and it took so much work to do everything. 😀 Thanks!
