Use scraps to make charming pouches of any size. Small ones are great for things like pencils, pens, and jewelry. Medium-sized bags work nicely for projects, take-along sewing, toiletries, and more, while the large denim bag can be used for just about anything.
String-piecing is used to create the bag sections. Foundations can be paper, parchment paper, sew-in interfacing, or thin batting (called wadding). The demo explains which type works best for each size and fabric type.
Scraps in any color theme are great for this project. Old jeans are also wonderful.
Instructions for four sizes are provided by the designer, Judith from Just Jude Designs. Plus, you can easily customize the pattern for any shape and size.
While there are no written instructions, the following video does an excellent job of explaining how the bags go together.

In the following screenshots, wadding means batting and interlining refers to interfacing.
PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest has featured many patterns from vendors participating in the Craftsy Marketplace, most of which have been deleted by Craftsy. It's going to take awhile for us to hunt down new sources for those patterns. In the meantime there are many links to patterns on our site that no longer work. We apologize if this article contains one or more of those links and appreciate your patience while we straighten things out. Thank you!
PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest does not sell or otherwise provide patterns directly. We showcase patterns and projects from various vendors, bloggers and other sources. Please make a note of where you access a pattern (the link in the yellow box toward the end of each Quilting Digest article). That way you can contact Support for that source if you have downloading problems or other issues. Thank you!
