We interviewed Mioko about her creation:
Kokka Fabric (KF): What did you think of the fabric you used for this project?
The red dots against the chic gray background is striking. The small printed birds add an accent and stylishness. The fabric is featured in a large piece to reveal the design.

KF: Can you tell us any special elements or ideas that you incorporated into this creation?
The point is that no metal piece is incorporated. For this bag, a bag tape is used, but even it can be substituted with the fabric. This way, you can start making it whenever you want to. While this bag is a simple construction, it can be used in two ways – a handbag and a shoulder bag.

KF: What are some tips for making this bag?
This time, I came up with an extremely simple design, so it does not have an adjustable shoulder strap. Just come up with the right length for the person who uses this bag.

KF: How should we use this bag in everyday situations?
Depending on your style of the day, you can carry it over your shoulder or hold it with your hands. Fully enjoy two elements of this bag. The A4 size documents fit perfectly, so you will find it convenient as a sub bag to carry files and magazines.

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

We interviewed Yui about her creation:
Kokka Fabric (KF): What did you think of the fabric you used for this project?
In order to complement the warm and fuzzy feel of the animals, I created a casual tote bag with rounded look.

KF: Can you tell us any special elements or ideas that you incorporated into this creation?
The bottom corner is rounded, and adding tucks help it to be more three dimensional. The outer fabric with quilt batting makes the bag stronger yet with some softness.

KF: What are some tips for making this bag?
Please make sure that fabric transitions as well as the tucks are in alignment. For a clean finish of the tucks, press them down to the alternate directions.

KF: How should we use this bag in everyday situations?
It can carry a lot of things. I am sure you will find it useful for your autumn outings.

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