Yellow fabric and blue-green fabric. This reversible bag allows you to choose the color depending on your mood or wardrobe. The echino’s double gauze collection, [tansan] is featured. The fabric’s handwritten touch is fun, and the small dots are the key to its cuteness.

We interviewed Mioko about her creation:
Kokka Fabric (KF): What did you think of the fabric you used for this project?
Beautiful colors, and a neat pattern with sharp lines! The little dots scattered around are lovely, like calm shimmering lights. Taking advantage of the gentleness of the double gauze and the beauty of the colors and patterns, tucks and gathers are added to create a soft and fluffy bag.
KF: Can you tell us any special elements or ideas that you incorporated into this creation?
In order to make the most of the gentleness of gauze, I paid attention to the gathers around the opening. I used a gray linen fabric with plenty of gathers to create a nuanced feel. To make it fluffy, a quilt batting is inserted to give it a solid shape. Another feature of note is that it is reversible.
KF: What are some tips for making this bag?
When sewing the gathered part together with the bag body, the fabric will overlap a lot, so please operate the sewing machine slowly. This time, I used plain gray linen, but I think it would also be cute if you make it with the same gauze.
KF: How should we incorporate this bag into one’s styling?
It is reversible, so you can enjoy it according to your outfit of the day. The small size and soft material make it handy to carry along with large luggage.
KF: Thank you very much, Mioko! Here are sewing instructions along with step by step photos from her. Enjoy crafting!
