Love to make this pattern I developed years ago.
2 seams only and a neat little bag to hold jewelry, soap, cards, lavender or whatever.
Take minutes to make.
Great to re-cycle. I used old sheets and and fabric scraps for these.
I like the 'boxed' bottom that results from the fold.
Take a 16x6" piece fabric, fold to 8x6", make any size you like really.
Fold is the bottom.
Now fold bottom up 1/2" and press. Top down 1.5" and press.
Sew down each side. Turn and like magic the top is neatly to the inside and the bottom has a bit of room so it can fill and look nice.
make from old quilts, scraps of tea dyed lace and charm squares.
To tie them closed, sometimes I sew around the top for a casing and snip a hole in it and thread ribbon through.
To decorate, do it after folding but before sewing so placement is right.
decorate with patches, transfers, buttons and anything you like.
