We interviewed Aiko about her creation:
Kokka Fabric (KF): What did you think of the fabric you used for this project?
It’s so cute! This is an adorable fabric with a pure white, fluffy dog staring at you. Taking advantage of the softness of the double gauze fabric, I created a design that allows for delicate drapes.

KF: Can you tell us any special elements or ideas that you incorporated into this creation?
This is a one-piece dress with a ribbon tied at the shoulder as an accent. I had a lot of fun making this dress, wondering where to place the patterns to create a lovely look.

KF: What are some tips for making this dress?
I think it is a good idea to have a little extra fabric on hand so that you can arrange the motifs as you like when matching patterns.

KF: How should we incorporate this dress into one’s styling?
As the pattern is so striking, you can just wear it on its own and look stylish! On a chilly day, you may wear it with a long sleeve shirt underneath.

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

Box Tissue Case – Sewing Instructions

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

The featured project is a box tissue case with a refreshing green tree design. The part that touches your hands is made of double gauze, while the bottom is finished with a solid canvas. The fabric used is “Kigi (Trees)” from Muddy Works, a textile brand by Tomotake.

Design & Work: Mioko Sugino


Fabric shown for this sample:EKX-126-1C


Materials:
□ Fabric (Panel): 80cm×40cm
(Bottom Fabric (Canvas)): 14cmx25cm
(Cord): 5cmx90cm


Size: 15cm(l) 23cm(w) 12cm(d)

We interviewed Mioko about her creation:
Kokka Fabric (KF): What did you think of the fabric you used for this project?
It is a lovely and soft double gauze featuring trees with an idyllic feel. It is both comfortable to see and touch. As we spend more time at home these days, I made a small home décor item with this comfy fabric.

KF: Can you tell us any special elements or ideas that you incorporated into this creation?
The part where you touch is made of double gauze for softness, and the bottom uses canvas for a solid finish, so it looks soft but holds its shape well. For this drawstring case, the accent is a tied bow of a solid dark green cord.

KF: What are some tips for making this tissue box?
I came up with a process that uses as few parts and steps as possible. The seam on the inside is not treated with a bias binding tape, and is simply finished with zigzag stitches. If you want to finish the inside nicely, please wrap it with the bias binding tape and sew it. For the cord, you could also use a wax cord or ribbon.

KF: How should we use this tissue box in everyday situations?
It would be cute to make a small size drawstring bag out of the same fabric and keep it beside the box. Matching items make you feel good, do they not? It would be nice to make them in colors that complement the atmosphere of the room.

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