We interviewed Satomi about her creation:
Kokka Fabric (KF): What did you think of the fabric you used for this project?
Making use of the double gauze’s tender feel and calm design, I created a drawstring bag for everyday use.
KF: Can you tell us any special elements or ideas that you incorporated into this creation?
A thin lace fabric is selected so that the gauze fabric can peek through the lace. By applying a different fabric for the opening, it works to make the bag look more cohesive.
KF: What are some tips for making this bag?
When making small items in double gauze fabric, it is best to use clips instead of dress pins, as the clips help keep the fabric aligned.
KF: How should we use this bag in everyday situations?
The drawstring bag always comes in handy if you keep one in your purse. Easy and quick to make, you can make matching bags for the whole family. Every time you touch the bag, you will find it comforting with the double gauze’s soft and tender texture.
KF: Thank you very much, Satomi! Here are sewing instructions along with step by step photos from her. Enjoy crafting!
