  204. Krista says:

    I can’t wait to try this. My daughter has been wanting a new makeup bag but can’t find one that will fit in her purse. I think that this will work!

    Pink Fat Quarters ๐Ÿ™‚ As a mama of two girls 2 years old and 3 years old Pink is the story of our lifes, we would love to win some super cute fat quarters!!

  206. Karen says:

    How cute are these. I can’t wait to attempt to make one!

  207. I have already made a few of these boxy bags from that same tutorial. They are “sew” easy to make and can be made any size you like. Great FQ project. Thanks for sharing. I’m enjoying this month theme of FQ’s. Do it again sometime. Shannon

    Kerri’s Flickr tutorial is awesome! I love how she managed to hide all the seams. While more flat than boxy, it’ll work great for a little gift project I need this spring. Thanks!

  209. karen says:

    Love pink prints…count me in on the giveaway!!

  210. Its_Lily says:

    This box bag is crazy cute and perfect for some material I brought back from Taiwan.

  211. Debbie L says:

    Very nice! Zippers scare me but I need to take the plunge one of these days.

  216. qsogirl says:

    oh thank you!! I’m a bit bag crazy, and I am so excited to see this tutorial! I must make some of these!

  217. Mary says:

    Good idea for graduation presents! Not too early to start thinking about them…

  221. JoAnn says:

    Woo hooo! An easter gift for my teen. Now I’m set. I love, love, love these fat quarter projects.

  222. Sonicka says:

    I have used this tutorial before and I loved it! One thing I did was fuse coordinating fabric together with double sided interfacing before I cut it out, then there was coordinating fabric on the inside.

  223. Debra says:

    These are really cute. Great for traveling.

  224. Anna says:

    The piglet bag is wonderful! This is a great quick gift idea to keep in mind for guys (though probably not in piglet fabric, LOL).

  225. Dani says:

    Thanks for sharing. Keep the wonderful FQ ideas coming! =^..^=

  226. Deanna says:

    I absolutely love making little pouches. They are perfect to toss the everyday stuff into whatever purse I want to use that day. Gives me more accessory options.

  227. Jane says:

    So very cute and looks very easy to make… LOVE how Penny does the zipper. Another great FQ tutorial!

  228. Ellen B says:

    You can’t have enough pouches! Love the tree fabric.

  229. Erica says:

    I love this! My husband is always looking for something to keep all his toiletries in, but has never been happy with what he’s found. It never occurred to me to make one for him (and me, and my daughters, and my mom, and…)

  230. Shellyfish says:

    I love making these boxy pouches – they have become a bit of an obsession!

  231. Sarah says:

    very cute. I think this may be first on my list after the fat quarter swap!

  232. Britt says:

    I ran across the tutorial awhile ago and couldn’t find it again. Thanks!

  233. AndreaLea says:

    That is adorable fabric! ♥

  234. Nancy says:

    I love all these fun projects with fat quarters, I don’t know why but projects just seem easier when they are made with exact cuts of fabric. I’d love to win some pink ones too. Thanks for the giveaway.

  235. Megan says:

    Thanks for the tutorials. I haven’t tried one of these yet.

  236. annie says:

    PINK……did you say PINK!!!! Oh I MUST win because PINK is MY color. Ok, enough screaming….thanks for the chance and keeping fingers crossed!!! XXX Annelies
