Step 1

Cut out the outer fabric and S 133 for the two side parts and the lid allowing for a 1-cm seam. Fuse S 133 onto the wrong side of the outer fabric (press on firmly, step by step, using a damp cloth, 15 seconds, 2-3 dots).

Step 2

Iron Bondaweb T10 onto the wrong side of the seam allowance of the outer fabric (5 seconds, 2-3 dots), fold the seam allowance over and iron it (with the paper).

Step 3

Cut into the seam allowances at the inner corners to make it easier to iron them. Once they have cooled down, strip off the paper and iron down the seam allowances which you had ironed on the fold (press on firmly, step by step, using a damp cloth, 6-7 seconds, 2-3 dots).

Step 4

Cut out the inner fabric, allowing for a 1-cm seam. Also cut into the inner corners of this fabric. It is important that you do not cut beyond the seam allowance, otherwise you will see it on the right side later on. As with the outer fabric, also fold over and iron the seam allowances of the inner fabric with Bondaweb T10 (press on firmly, step by step, using a damp cloth, 6-7 seconds, 2-3 dots).

Step 5

Now cut out Bondaweb in the same size as all the pieces completely fused with S 133 and fuse it onto the S 133 (5 seconds, 2-3 dots). Strip off the paper after the pieces have cooled down.

Step 6

For the straight piece cut out of the inner fabric, it is important to attach the Velcro fastener before it is joined to the outer fabric because otherwise the seam will be visible later on. Attach the Velcro fastener to the right side of the inner fabric at the corners.

Step 7

Now lay all the inner fabric pieces onto the parts fused with S 133, making sure the edges are lined up, and fuse (press on firmly, step by step, using a damp cloth, 6-7 seconds, 2-3 dots). Stitch all around close to the edges once all the pieces have cooled down completely.

Step 8

Now attach the other part of the Velcro fastening to the other side part, but this time attach it to the outer fabric and not the inner fabric.

Step 9

Fold up the sides of the lid and join them together by hand with a few stitches, inserting the needle right next to the point where the two edges of the S 133 meet.

Step 10

For the handles, iron the S 520 strips onto the centre of the wrong side of the outer fabric press on firmly, step by step, using a damp cloth, 15 seconds, 2-3 dots). Then, as already described, iron Bondaweb T10 onto the seam allowances.

Step 11

Fold the seam allowances up and iron them, fold them down again once they have cooled down, strip off the paper, fold them up again and iron them in place (press on firmly, step by step, using a damp cloth, 6-7 seconds, 2-3 dots).

Step 12

Stitch along the centre of the handles with an embroidery stitch.

Step 13

Now fold over both ends of the handles by approx. 0.7 cm and stitch to one of the side parts.

Step 14

The individual parts are now put together to create a box. First position the side part with the handles. Lay the other side part across it. Now fold up all the side parts, press the Velcro fastener closed and put the lid on the top.
