echino ni-co’s knit jacquard is turned into a pouch with a zipper. The ni-co’s masculine pattern looks slightly feminine with an addition of a fur tape. A bright red tape works as a playful accent. Why not try making this to add to your stylish collection for autumn?

We interviewed Yui about her creation:
Kokka Fabric (KF): What did you think of the fabric you used for this project?
A lined design of glasses looks simple yet stylish. While it will be cute using it diagonally, for this piece, I took the design to line three pair of glasses vertically.
KF: Can you tell us any special elements or ideas that you incorporated into this creation?
The handle uses a bright red tape as an accent. With the fur tape, it creates a stylish fall feel.
KF: What are some tips for making this case?
Some people may find zipper attachment difficult, but there are tips to finish it cleanly, like folding the zipper edge and stitching by avoiding the lining fabric. I hope you will find my instructions helpful.
KF: How should we use this case in everyday situations?
It has a perfect size as a cosmetics bag as well as a pen case. You can never have too many of these items, so this will make a great gift.
KF: Thank you very much, Yui! Here are sewing instructions along with step by step photos from her. Enjoy crafting!
