We interviewed Satomi about her creation:
Kokka Fabric (KF): What did you think of the fabric you used for this project?
The calm tone of gray with a combination of scattered ribbons is perfect for making items that appeal to both young and old.

KF: Can you tell us any special elements or ideas that you incorporated into this creation?
These select items are easy to make, great for everyday use, and fully utilize the 50cm fabric.
The ice pack cover becomes handy for going out with your baby or when kids sprain their fingers. Use the remnants to make a variety of sizes as they are convenient.

KF: What are some tips for making these items?
When making small items with a double gauze, use clips rather than pins, as the fabric tends to stay together better. When folding the fabric, use an iron for a clean finish.

KF: How should we use these items in everyday situations?
The double gauze cover helps absorb moisture and prevents items from getting wet as the frozen PET bottle starts to defrost. Put the gauze cover on and place it in a plastic bag, then keep it in the ice pack cover. This way the bottle is kept cold and prevents things from getting wet.

KF: Thank you very much, Satomi! Here are sewing instructions along with step by step photos from her. Enjoy crafting!
