I use this tutorial - http://pinkxstitches.blogspot.com/2014/01/boxy-pouch-tutorial.html and generally make the smaller one.
Then after that, I thought I'd make 6 more, again on an unreasonable deadline before a train trip with 5 friends to Santa Barbara. These were made a little more in production style.
and the pink llamas were not planned to come together that way near the zipper but I love it (and kept that one).
Here they are all together. One of the other girls brought a bunch of little gifts for everyone which fit perfectly in these pouches. It's like we planned it instead of schemed separately.
I made another for a Spiderman fan. Although larger and with no interfacing since I was out.
And then two for a staff retirement gift, since I couldn't decide on the fabric and had someone else pick which to gift. They chose the blue floral. We paired it with sunscreen, macademia nuts and a Hawaiian Airlines gift card. I think she liked it.
* I don't do random well. That opens the possibility that two pieces of the same fabric touch or even worse, the bicycles are going in the wrong direction.
