Step 7

Place your hand inside the tube that was created and you should see the exterior pieces inside and undo the zip at least halfway. This is an important step since we want to have our bag to unfold the right way around when we finish sewing. Line up all the edges and sew this to each line going through the zip. Do the same on the other side.

Step 8

Place your hand inside so the corners form a triangle and this is going to create the box shape. Across the triangle, measure 7 cm and mark with a pen.

Step 9

Sew each of the four corners to form the box shape all together and cut any loose threads. Trim any excess corners before flipping it inside out with that space you created by keeping it halfway open
