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.

Special features of the Boxy Tool Pouch:
three sizes in the same pattern
cute boxy shape
no raw edges/ all inside edges beautifully finished using fabric binding (last two photos)
zipper closure
optional handle

Skill level: advanced beginner

Sizing info: (tall x wide x deep)
SMALL – 2'' x 5'' x 2 ½''
MEDIUM - 2 ½'' x 6 ½'' x 3''
