The Case Study series revolves around a container design that is sturdy, yet soft. With a padded foam core and simple cuboid shape, the architecture lends itself to a number of storage and transport applications. The straightforward construction process involves basic sewing and crafting techniques. A number of looks from clean utilitarian to boutique designer are possible depending
on fabric and embellishment choices.

The Boxy Bag is great for toting around gear and treasures, including:

Handheld video games
Small toys and dolls
Wrapped food and beverages
Sewing/Knitting supplies
Baby supplies
General purse stuff

Functional and stylish options include scrunched exterior pockets, flat interior pockets, and removable dividers. These bags are a great way to showcase designer fabrics, embroidery/applique work, and creative embellishments.

medium (10½”l x 5½”w x 5½”h), and large (11½”l x 6½”w x 6½”h).

Loved this Wonderful Soft Boxy Case Idea!! Made all three sizes and even had one of my Students make the largest one as a sewing Box for herself! The only thing I can say is....judging the magnetic closure...I had to adjust the recommended place so that the box lid would fit squared up! Which was hard to do when you do it all in the flat...took some math..which I*wink*...but this is a FANTASTIC fun pattern and know I will make more...I don't this is truly my Version of take all those pieces of squares and rectangles and then put them together!!
