A Lovely Panda Design Mask Case – Sewing Instructions

As daily mask wearing still continues, a case for a temporarily removed mask became a must-have item. This mask case is constructed simply by sewing two pieces of fabric together and adding a snap button. From the “Chibipuri” series, a panda patterned 100% cotton sheeting is featured. The Kung-fu style panda motif is so lovely. The randomly placed design makes this fabric perfect for small goods making. A matching handmade mask will make a nice accompaniment.

Since single-use plastic shopping bags are no longer free at stores, “my reusable (eco) bag” has become a standard item. This bag in a plastic shopping bag design can be used not just by men, but by women, children and adults. A perfect fit for the whole family. Featured is a fabric from the “Men’s Eco Bag Kikaku (Plan)” series. As the name suggests, the denim design bag is fit for men to carry. 100% cotton sheeting is easy to sew and is recommended for sewing beginners.

Design & Work:Yui Tamaki


Fabric shown for this sample:LGA-39090-1A


Materials:
□ Fabric: 110cm wide x 40cm
□ Paracord: 50cm (0.4cm diameter)
□ Cord Stopper: One piece (with two holes)
□ Tag of your choice


Size: 30cm (l) 26cm (w) 12cm (d)

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 denim pattern with a gentle feel would make a nice reusable bag that can be casually used by men and women as well as by children and adults. By matching the black tag and the paracord that has an outdoorsy touch, it creates an item fit for men.

KF: Can you tell us any special elements or ideas that you incorporated into this creation?
It is a simple shopping bag that men feel comfortable carrying, and is easy to fold when not in use. I focused on making it simple to sew, so I think that even handicraft beginners can make it nicely.

KF: What are some tips for making this bag?
When wrapping the bottom with a separate piece of fabric, I think it will have a high-quality look when it is finished with a concealed seam (applying stitches along the edge where two fabrics meet)

KF: How should we use this bag in everyday situations?
It’s simple and convenient, so it will make a perfect gift!

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

Notebook Cover in a Patchwork Style Print Fabric – Sewing Instructions

*All Rights Reserved.  Please refrain from the unauthorized use of project photos

(Outer Fabric B, Button Fabric): 30cm x 20cm

□ Core for Fabric Wrapped Button: Two pieces (2.4cm diameter)
□ #25 Embroidery Thread


Size:19cm (l) 13.5cm (w-when closed)

We interviewed Ayumi about her creation:
Kokka Fabric (KF): What did you think of the fabric you used for this project?
I love all of the Very Cotton series as they are colorful and cute. With strawberries everywhere, it became even cuter. The scalloped border has a pattern that looks like it has already been patchworked, creating plenty of presence without any additional effort. Each small cake pattern is very lovely, and I immediately came up with the idea of making a fabric covered button.

KF: Can you tell us any special elements or ideas that you incorporated into this creation?
With pen holders on both sides, the pages do not open when the pen is inserted. It prevents the cover from opening in your bag. I also added a charming fabric covered button at the end of the bookmark as an accent.

KF: What are some tips for making this cover?
The quilt batting should be as thin as possible. Cut the seam allowance to 5mm before turning the cover over for a clean finish.

KF:How should we use this cover in everyday situations?
This design suits a thin notebook that you can find at a dollar store. The handmade cover can turn the generic notebook into your own. May your favorite notebook be filled with exciting plans…

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