We interviewed Kanae about her creation:
Kokka Fabric (KF): What did you think of the fabric you used for this project?
The design features stylish plates and sign boards, the motif that is perfect for DIY activity that is currently considered trendy. It was fun thinking about which part of the design to use.

KF: Can you tell us any special elements or ideas that you incorporated into this creation?
You can quickly make this simple design case as it does not have an opening for turning and no hand stitching is needed. The fabrics around the opening has four layers so it can maintain a solid shape without a core board.

KF: How should we use this case in everyday situations?
While it is primarily a tissue box case, it can be used as a clutter organizer by opening a snap.

Two Way Bucket Bag

Size: 27cm (l) 18cm (bottom diameter)

Despite its small size, this bucket-style bag can hold many going-out necessities such as a wallet and cell phone. The main part of the bag uses a bright african color, a fabric that has such vivid fluorescent color tones. The bag has a proper style and comes in a simple yet solid #6 canvas. The handle is adjustable with snap buttons and it adds a nice twist to the creation. By attaching a strand of chain, you can turn this into a shoulder bag.

We interviewed Yui about her creation:
Kokka Fabric (KF): What did you think of the fabric you used for this project?


The fluorescent color caught my eyes. I really like its color and design combination. I wanted to make something that is versatile and can be used often from spring to fall.

KF: Can you tell us any special elements or ideas that you incorporated into this creation?
This trendy bucket-style bag is just the right size to carry. It has enough space for your everyday items like a wallet, cell phone and pen case. The contents can be covered and a handy pocket is placed outside. The handle length is adjustable with snap buttons. By attaching a strand of chain, you can turn this into a shoulder bag.

KF: What are some tips for making this bag?
While the #6 canvas fabric has a slightly rough texture, it goes perfectly well with the african color and can create a proper look. When sewing together the round bottom and the bag top, I recommend taking extra steps by using sewing clips or basting for a clean round finish.

KF:How should we use this bag in everyday situations?
It serves as a nice accent when coordinated with a simple style of clothing. The size of this bag is so perfect that it makes you want to use it every day!

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