Large One Handle Bag

Size: 28cm (l) 41cm (w – top side) 31cm (bottom) 10cm (d)

Impressive with an eye-catching vermillion color, this one handle bag is made with echino’s embroidered series featuring a popular deer motif. Somewhat different from a print material, this embroidered fabric will let you enjoy a dimensional look. The addition of a gold ring on the handle makes this large bag with ample room appear mature and keeps it from being too casual.

We interviewed Yui about her creation:
Kokka Fabric (KF): What did you think of the fabric you used for this project?
The lovely embroidery throughout the fabric feels richer in tone than a printed fabric. I wanted to use as much area as possible with embroidery, so the bag ended up being large.
I also tried to create something rough and not too structured, while retaining the texture. Using remnants which still has lots of embroidery, you can make matching small items, like a pouch.

KF: Can you tell us any special elements or ideas that you incorporated into this creation?
It is a casual one handle bag with ample room for carrying things. The gold ring makes this bag look more mature and keeps the items from falling out of the bag.

KF:What are some tips for making this bag?
It is simple to make as long as you follow the correct sewing sequence!
When sewing the bag portion, please be careful not to accidentally sew the handle together.

KF: How should we use this bag in everyday situations?
This large bag with eye-catching color is casual, so it will be perfect for a relaxed and simple style of clothing.
