How to make vinyl zipper cases that stand up

I love to organize, especially when my "organizing pieces" are gorgeous, like these colorful vinyl zipper cases.

Remember this tutorial?

I use these in my sewing drawer to organize buttons, poms, ribbon, and more.

Let's make a variation, with boxed corners so it stands up on its own, plus let's have it a little bigger for more shizzle.

Scraps organizer
Zipper holder
Snacky Treat organizer (it's a thing)
Travel Wet Case

Shoot you could use them anywhere-- I have one to store fruit roll ups in my pantry. (Don't judge me, those things are my FAVE!)

YOU NEED A TEFLON FOOT to sew vinyl with ease. For realz - it's worth the ten bucks, no joke. Watch my demo here:

New measurements for these bags:

Vinyl body pieces 16" W x 13" H
Fabric accents 16" W x 6" H
Interfacing 16" x 3"
Zipper tabs 2" x 3"

CUT zipper 1" shorter in width than your bag
**for this tutorial cut it to 15" long**

Make 2.5" boxed corners
Sew with a 1/2" seam allowance

Seam allowance 1/4"

Follow the steps exactly as they are in my first tutorial here, then add boxed corners at the very end, like this:

Here's a link to a video I made sewing a similar case:

My Guide to Sewing Vinyl is here. It's worth a quick read if you're new to vinyl.

The Essentials TOTE pattern IS available in print! YAY!

It's ready also a PDF in my Etsy shop, if you need instant gratification. This large bag makes a great get-away bag (wink!)...

Vinyl available in my shops here and here.
