The project is a flat pouch in print fabric with lovely puppies that make you want to hug them.
Featuring an outer front zipper, the accent is a stripe fabric, slightly peeking from the edge of the zipper. The bag will be very useful in organizing such small items that often get lost in the bag, like a face mask, mini disposable heating pad and hand cream!

We interviewed Kanae about her creation:
Kokka Fabric (KF): What did you think of the fabric you used for this project?
I decided to make a flat pouch because I wanted to create something that you can really appreciate: a lovely large design of a puppy. Every single one of the four puppies is so cute that it makes you want to create four individual pouches featuring each of them.
KF: Can you tell us any special elements or ideas that you incorporated into this creation?
I paid special attention to the color combination, even treating a zipper as one of the colors. Overall color balance was considered so that the combination would not look odd when the zipper is opened.
KF: What are some tips for making this pouch?
The process for side stitches is slightly different. You may find it confusing just by reading the instructions, however by learning this method, you can shorten the sewing time and it is very convenient.
KF: How should we use this pouch in everyday situations?
It is a flat pouch, yet it holds a lot, allowing you to organize random items in a bag.
KF: Thank you very much, Kanae! Here are sewing instructions along with step by step photos from her. Enjoy crafting!
