We interviewed Yui about her creation:
Kokka Fabric (KF): What did you think of the fabric you used for this project?
You immediately notice it’s an echino fabric. Its vivid pattern and color tones are so attractive! I thought a little purse in this fabric will go perfectly well with an autumn style!

KF: Can you tell us any special elements or ideas that you incorporated into this creation?
The fluffiness of the quilt batting and tuck detail create a roundish soft look. While enjoying this as a clutch bag, the strap loop allows you to carry it as a shoulder purse when needed.

KF: What are some tips for making this bag?
The process is easy with a simple straight stitching! The leather tape for strap loop can be attached any place you like, but it is best not to layer it with the top opening seam to keep it from being bulky.

KF: How should we incorporate this bag into one’s styling?
It is compact and can easily be coordinated with your wardrobe. It can carry many things. Wallet, smart phone, handkerchief, Kleenex, mask, you name it. It will definitely become handy as an everyday bag!

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