Discovering the Pyramids
In my neverending search for project bags, I happened to run across this cute little concept: The Pyramid Bag. I found an obscure little online diagram and set about trying to figure it out. I came up with my version, then someone shared this archived tutorial.
I had made mine much the same, except I set the zipper in differently. I found when the zipper went all the way across the edge, it didn't make for a nice finish at the top of the bag. Sewing the top together about 2 inches before the zipper made all the difference.
I also use a fusible heavyweight interfacing to make a sturdy bag. I much prefer that to the floppy look. These bags are about 8" x 8" and make the perfect sized sock project bag. A mini one would do well as a little notions pouch.
