Box-It-Up Case (2 sizes)

You won’t believe this incredible organiser. Wide-open trays that zip up into triangles then nest together to form the boxy organiser. Genius!


This ingenious organizer consists of 4 triangular compartments that neatly fold up into a box. Each compartment opens up wide so you can easily see and access your goodies.
The pattern comes in 2 sizes.
The large one is perfect to stow sewing supplies, make-up, jewelry, and toiletries. It has see-through pockets and an elastic thread holder. It is completely customizable, you can add as many pockets as you wish.
The small version would be great to keep pencils, crayons, rulers, and erasers. Sew one for your kids and send them to school in style with their own personalized case.
Stop searching for your supplies, they are now all nicely boxed up in one place!

*If you do not like the long zipper loops, I have included a small tutorial on how to use ribbon clamps to shorten the loops.
