We interviewed Yui about her creation:
Kokka Fabric (KF): What did you think of the fabric you used for this project?
I thought that the gentle feel of white clover would calm our mood, so I created kitchen accessories that we come in contact with every day. I think they will be useful during the season when we wear long-sleeves!

KF: Can you tell us any special elements or ideas that you incorporated into this creation?
The short length is stylish and looks cute hanging in the kitchen. By making it reversible with a plaid pattern, I made it easier to create the opening for the elastic cord. (the plaid pattern serves as a guide when sewing).

KF: What are some tips for making this arm cover?
The part with a tubular shape is sewn from the inside. I hope you find the instruction video helpful.

KF: How should we use this arm cover in everyday situations?
Since it is reversible, I hope your house chores will be enjoyable by switching the pattern you see depending on your mood.

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

We interviewed Satomi about her creation:
Kokka Fabric (KF): What did you think of the fabric you used for this project?
As the characters are drawn with a soft and pretty touch, I tried to make a lovely bag by placing a charming ribbon on the front.

KF: Can you tell us any special elements or ideas that you incorporated into this creation?
The characters are printed at equal intervals, so I was careful when cutting. In particular, I worked on the front side and the ribbon part so that the characters would stand out. Also, using quilt batting is key to making a fluffy ribbon.

KF: What are some tips for making this bag?
For this bag, I used a magnetic button for the opening, but you can change it to a zipper if you want a secure closure. Adding a pocket inside makes it even more convenient to use.

KF: How should we incorporate this bag into one’s styling?
Adjust the length of the shoulder straps according to your child’s size (if the length is too short, add extra fabric). You can change the ribbon part to synthetic fur or another fabric to give it a different look. Please try making a shoulder bag for your child with your favorite fabric.

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