lay the 'H' down on the fabric and trace around it with chalk.

do this twice, once for the exterior and once for the lining.

Right sides together, sew all the around the 'H', except leave an opening at the crotch of the 'H'.

Turn the piece inside out and then top stitch all the way around, except for the opening you left.

The flaps overlap a bit, so this will be a collapsing box.

Sew velcro along the tops of the H.

Now it will close and hold certain things.
