boxy tool pouch (new pdf pattern)

Hello, welcome everyone!

I have a new pattern to share with you today :)

This Boxy Tool Pouch has been on my mind for way too long and it feels fantastic to have the pattern all finished. What do you think?

FINISHED MEASUREMENTS: (tall x wide x deep) 
SMALL – 2'' x 5'' x 2 ½''
MEDIUM - 2 ½'' x 6 ½'' x 3''
LARGE - 3'' x 8'' x 4''

I am quite a fan of boxy pouches (especially when they come in different sized) and have already been using quite a few of them daily.

Just like many of you, I don't like seeing any exposed or raw edges when I make my pouches. So, after doing a bit of  testing of different techniques, I decided adding fabric binding to finish inner edges was the way to go. This technique makes for a pretty easy pouch assembly and bound edges add extra stability and structure to a finished pouch, definitely a win - win.

See? I love how beautifully boxy they are :)

This middle size is absolutely perfect as a pencil pouch or make up bag.

I think the handle makes these cuties super practical.

This is a measure and cut pattern, no templates needed!

MATERIALS NEEDED (for large size):
fabric A (pouch exterior) – 1 FQ
fabric B (pouch lining) – 1 FQ
fabric C (pull handle) - 3'' x 7'' strip
SF 101 interfacing (or similar medium weight fusible interfacing) – 1/2 yard
one - 11'' long metal or nylon zipper
(7'' long zipper for small size, 9'' long zipper for medium size)
one - 1/2'' - 3/4'' wide x 2'' long ribbon
one zipper pull - I used a 6'' long 1/8” wide leather lace (optional)

rotary cutter, self healing cutting mat, acrylic ruler
wonder clips and/or pins
sharp fabric scissors
zipper foot for your sewing machine (optional)

I used metal zippers (purchased from Zipit on Etsy) for my pouches but you can definitely go with nylon ones if that's what you prefer/ have on hand.
