Another finish!! Bodobo Box Bag by Ticklegrass Designs (Natalie Rawlinson). The patter has 4 sizes and this is the large size. A little bit bigger and my husband said he would like it for his shaving bag ( maybe with waterproof lining ). Really interesting pattern to sew together but once done no raw seams! Fabric from quilt store in Summerland BC - best store in the Okanagan!!
What does Bodobo name mean?

    Absolutely beautiful! 💖 Your workmanship is top-notch! 👍 I totally need some of that fabric, who makes it? The pattern only has 3 different sizes - small, medium and large, but options to add handles to the the large and medium. The fabric allowance listed in the pattern will make 1 small, 2 medium and 1 large. Modifying the pattern to make a larger one for your husband would not be difficult at all, just add an inch or two to the large bag dimensions and cut bigger box corner squares. These are so fun to experiment with!!! 😃 Bodobo is a silly word I made up years ago that basically describes the satisfaction I get from creating something - the process and/or finished product. 😁. Thanks for posting your beautiful Bodobo!!!!! 😊

    Congrats Sandra ... your Bodobo is beautiful! You did an awesome job! Thank you for posting a pic so we get to see. Isn't it fun and gratifying when your husband requests a handmade shaving kit? Iron-on vinyl works well for a nearly waterproof bag. Happy sewing!

    @ticklegrassdesigns the large triangle print is Cotton And Steel Mesa and the lining with small triangles "might" be C&S as well 😊
