You will need:

  • 40cm of cotton fabric such as quilting cotton or cotton canvas (115cm or 140cm wide)
  • 30cm of quilting cotton for the lining (115cm or 140cm wide). If you’d like to make it water resistant on the inside, ripstop is a good choice.
  • 30cm of interfacing/backing/fusible fleece
  • 35cm/14″ zip

The downloadable pattern file contains:

  • printable pattern (in tiled print-at-home format)
  • printable illustrated instruction booklet

The Boxy Toiletries Bag pattern is 5 A4/US letter pages or 1 A2 Copyshop page.

So what is a PDF pattern?
A PDF pattern is a downloadable pattern that you print yourself at home on A4 or US letter paper. Alternatively you can choose to have the copyshop files printed on large A0 paper, and posted to you at home. If you’re using the A4 or US letter options, simply download, print at home, tape together and let the sewing begin! When you print the pattern, print at 100% (you might have to uncheck the scale box). Print page 1 first, the square should measure 10cm x 10cm.
