My mother-in-law has been using this pouch ever since I gave her. It now looks like its seen better days. So I thought it was time to give the boxy pouch another try. The dimensions are very different from the very first one I made.
Tutorial : Boxy Pouch
The pouch turned out good and mother-in-law was very happy
I decided to try something different when I decided to make it again. I used the same tutorial as above but changed the dimesions to 17" x 13" to make a larger pouch.
I sandwiched the foam betwewn the main fabric and another piece of fabric ( this is not the lining piece). I have tried something like this before for this camera cozy. I tried sewing the foam directly onto the main fabric - something like sew-in interfacing. Foam tends to tear when sewn and the process becomes quite difficult. Hence sandwiching the foam between 2 layers is important.
I then drew criss cross lines on the fabric, pinned and sewed down the three layers together. This acts as the main fabric. The quilted piece should look like this.
I cut the lining piece the same dimension as the quilted piece and followed the rest of the tutorial as it is. For both the pouches I bound the inner seams with satin ribbon and it really makes for a clean finished product.
And here is the quilted boxy pouch
This pouch was a birthday gift for my friend Cefalo Susy. Susy is Italian and I met her in Florence (Ahhhh! Florence). We've kept in touch after our meeting and she has now become a dear friend of mine. It did take a while to reach her but I'm glad she liked it and has been using it as a jewellery pouch.
