We interviewed Mioko about her creation:
Kokka Fabric (KF): What did you think of the fabric you used for this project?
The design is natural and lovely, yet has a mature feel, allowing this fabric to be enjoyed in various ways. For this project, I wanted the piece to feel natural, so I combined it with a deep green color.
KF: Can you tell us any special elements or ideas that you incorporated into this creation?
It is originally a solid fabric, and with quilt batting, it keeps its shape even with many items inside. I wanted to make the curved handles to be stable, so two quilt batting layers are applied, creating puffy yet structured handles.
KF: What are some tips for making this bag?
When you are sewing the sides together, please make sure that the handles are aligned on the side. It should make a clean V shape when the handles are pieced together perfectly.
KF: How should we use this bag in everyday situations?
It looks lovely with a natural style dress or with a rough style, like a pair of jeans and sneaker combination.
KF: Thank you very much, Mioko! Here are sewing instructions along with step by step photos from her. Enjoy crafting!
