Design & Work:ui Tamaki


Fabric shown for this sample:YQA-16010-2C


Materials:
□ Fabric (Body Outer Fabric, Handle, Ruffles): 100cm×40cm
(Body Lining Fabric (Cotton Linen Canvas)): 50cm×30cm
□ Outdoor Cord (Paracord): 1m (0.3cm diameter)
□ Tag of your choice: One piece


Size:25cm (l) 20cm (w) )

We interviewed Yui about her creation:
kokka Fabric (KF): What did you think of the fabric you used for this project?
The cute pattern, studded with stars and constellations, is perfect for children’s preschool goods, but the shimmering gold ink makes it also suitable for grown-up use I thought. It has just the right thickness for a drawstring bag, so I made it into a convenient drawstring bag with a handle.

KF: Can you tell us any special elements or ideas that you incorporated into this creation?
To make the lovely night sky pattern look even cuter, I added plenty of ruffles all around it. A simple black tag and a black outdoor cord are used for the string for a sharper look so that even adults can use it.

KF: What are some tips for making this bag?
When sewing the cord insert opening, it is helpful to put masking tape on the sewing machine to use as a guide.

KF: How should we incorporate this bag into one’s styling?
The bag’s small size makes it perfect for a quick outing. I think the yellow star pattern against the white would go perfectly with a denim style coordination!

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

Clean Look and Ample Room♪ – Pouch With A Zippered Pocket – Sewing Instructions

*All Rights Reserved.  Please refrain from the unauthorized use of project photos.

This stylish pouch has a zippered pocket on the inside. The featured fabric is a floral pattern from the “teiban” series. The mature color combination of white flowers on a black background goes well with the simple style of the pouch. The fabric is 100% cotton oxford. This material is suitable for making bags and pouches because of its easy-to-sew thickness.

Design & Work:Mioko Sugino


Fabric shown for this sample:YKA-96010-2E


Materials:
□ Fabric (Outer Fabric): 55cm×45cm
(Lining Fabric): 55cm×45cm
□ Shank Button: 1 pair (2cm diameter)
□ Flatknit Zipper: One piece (20cm long)


Size: 15cm (l) 22cm (w-at opening) 17cm (bottom) 5cm (gusset width)

We interviewed Mioko about her creation:
Kokka Fabric (KF): What did you think of the fabric you used for this project?
I came up with a clean and simple pouch. Black is chosen to give it a mature look, while the gentle curve at the top creates a softer look.

KF: Can you tell us any special elements or ideas that you incorporated into this creation?
I wanted to feature the flat surface to make the floral pattern look neat and cute, but also convenient, so a zippered pocket is added on the inside. To keep the cutting and sewing as simple as possible, I made the outer bag and the pocket the same width. Because of that, the inside pocket gets saggy when empty, but it settles down nicely once you put something inside. When not in use, you can keep it neatly along the inside wall.

KF: What are some tips for making this pouch?
When sewing the side ends of the outer and lining bags, please make sure to sew up to where it is supposed to stop, securely adding the back stitches. If you sew all the way to the top, the outer and lining bags will be sewn together, causing the puckering.

KF: How should we use this pouch in everyday situations?
It would be cute to make a coin purse, tissue case, key pouch, etc. from the same fabric to have the matching pieces inside your bag. Or attach leather tape with rivets and turn it into a bag!

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