Fold each 12″ x 16″ fabric in half to be 6″ x 16″ and sew 2 sides with 1/4″ seam. Be sure to sew the side and bottom of directional fabric, not the top, (fig. 2) or your print will be upside down and you’ll be grabbing your seam ripper. (I love this one.)

  • Open the bag and match the long seam to the opposite side (that was the fold) and flatten on your cutting mat. Line the seam up on a grid line, seam side up.
  • Fold the bottom seam flat, putting the point on the same grid line and matching the long seam.
  • You might need to adjust how the bag is flattened to make sure there is equal fabric on each side of the seam line and that the box bottom points are lined up correctly.
  • Taking a minute to line this up makes your box bottoms even and there is less fussing and folding each corner.
