Sacoche (Small Shoulder Bag)

Size: 28cm (l) 30cm (w) 10cm (d)

Sacoche is a crossbody bag, originally carried by bicycle road racers. It is slightly bigger than a pochette bag. The featured fabric is from the Sukikirai Wo Nakuso (meaning “let’s not be picky with your food”). Carrots and green peppers, vegetables not normally liked by kids, are joyfully arranged. This bag with a not-too-childish design is also appropriate for a grown up.

We interviewed Masumi about her creation:
Kokka Fabric (KF): What did you think of the fabric you used for this project?
The design is cute but feels mature at the same time. So, I came up with an item that is suitable for both kids and adults.

KF: Can you tell us any special elements or ideas that you incorporated into this creation?
I consciously came up with “something easy” to make, perfect as an impromptu project. The inner pocket is big enough for your smart phone (iPhone).

KF: What are some tips for making this bag?
As it only requires straight stitching, make sure that you cut and iron the fabric in a straight manner. This way, you can accomplish an easy sewing and clean finish.

KF: How should we use this bag in everyday situations?
Adjust the length of the shoulder strap depending on the user, and you can make it in a variety of sizes. The inner pocket can be smaller or larger based on your preference. Why not make parent and kid matching bags?

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

We interviewed Anriko about her creation:
Kokka Fabric (KF): What did you think of the fabric you used for this project?
Slightly thin cotton linen bark cloth allows you to create a dress with a large tuck and relaxed silhouette without looking too puffy. Putting in the cute patterns as a main feature, I created a one-piece dress.

KF: Can you tell us any special elements or ideas that you incorporated into this creation?
A wide-open neckline, combined with a stand-up collar off turtle style makes your neckline look beautiful. It even makes your face look smaller. Creating a detailed tuck and pleated treatment often takes an effort,
so, for this piece, it only requires one large diagonal tuck, offering an interesting look.

KF: What are some tips for making this dress?
Attaching the drop shoulder sleeve and sewing body and neckline all at once to create a turtle neck – these are the elements that make it easy for sewing beginners. If you are worried about steady stitching, be mindful when selecting the sewing thread.

KF: How should we use this dress in everyday situations?
For a person around 5’-4” in height, the hem will be roughly around your knees. The sleeve is a little short of full length. You can put it on by itself as a dress, or it looks great layered with an inner long sleeve shirt or a pair of pants underneath.

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