A !ereal bo- ill !ome to the res!ue as the support for my ne organi%er) 0he short side of the bo- ill be the base of the organi%er, and the front and ba!k of the bo- ill fold up ards to !reate the sides of the organi%er, and ill hold the po!kets) I’ve !ut the bo- to si%e, and planned ho the !ontents might fit here)

2 e2ual s2uare pie!es of fabri! are needed for the interior and e-terior of the organi%er) .1e-t.

I’ve determined the height for the po!kets from averaging out the si%e needed to !ontain the most !ommon items I !arry around in my bag daily) I’ve !hosen to make my po!kets from the same fabri! as above. and pinning it in pla!e) 0hese po!kets are pinned atop the first s2uare fabri! pie!e I !ut earlier) . but you might ant to use a !omplimentary fabri! instead) I first !ut strips of the fabri! in my desired height. and then hemmed the top and bottom) I then took the strips of fabri! for the po!kets and si%ed the po!kets by a!tually rapping the fabri! around the item.

3ere are the first ro of po!kets se n) 1e-t. repeat the steps above on the se!ond side of the organi%er) .

e 5 of the 6 sides !losed. as sho n here/ . and &oin it right4 side to right4side ith the pie!e that has the po!kets atta!hed) .1o for that se!ond s2uare pie!e e prepared earlier) 0ake that pie!e of fabri!.
