Masks are necessities these days for allergies and keeping viruses away. With your mask, you would always want to carry a tissue packet. Why not make a convenient tissue case with a pocket? All you need to do is just fold the fabric and sew. The featured fabric is the WILD FLORAL from the egg press series. This cotton 100% thin muslin fabric is perfect for making small items.

Design & Work: Satomi Takei


Fabric shown for this sample::

egg press EKXA-5500-1A


Materials:
□ Fabric:30cm×45.5cm


Size: 10cm (l) 13cm (w – when folded in half)

We interviewed Satomi about her creation:
Kokka Fabric (KF): What did you think of the fabric you used for this project?
To take advantage of the classy and clean design, I came up with a small item that can be used everyday.

KF:: Can you tell us any special elements or ideas that you incorporated into this creation?
What I wanted was a tissue case that allows you to carry things like a band aid or sanitary items together. So this case has two pockets. It also helps you to organize the items in your purse.

KF: What are some tips for making this case?
If the fabric’s design does not go in one direction, you will be able to use only one piece of fabric to make the case.

KF: How should we use this case in everyday situations?
A pocket tissue case is a girl’s must-have item. Once you learn how to fold the fabric, you can quickly and easily make it. Why not use your favorite fabric to make a piece? It will make you look even more lovely. If it is made with a gauze fabric, it can be used as a handkerchief in emergency situations. To keep the flaps closed, adding a snap button is a good idea.

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

We interviewed Mioko about her creation:
Kokka Fabric (KF): What did you think of the fabric you used for this project?
It is really cute with odd shaped dots in beautiful layer of colors! What makes it stylish is the gradation of tones where the colors overlap. Carrying a piece made with this fabric will lift up your spirits. It is sturdy and solid to create a steady shape. Taking advantage of this character, I incorporated the tuck and fold lines in the design.

KF: Can you tell us any special elements or ideas that you incorporated into this creation?
I conceived a piece that looks whimsical without a complex making process. The tightened top can be created by repeating the folding and stitching steps.

KF: What are some tips for making this bag?
When sewing together the top opening of the outer bag and lining bag, you may find it slightly difficult due to the position of the tucks. Try not to worry too much about the tuck. As you sew, focus on keeping the edge of the opening aligned where you apply stitches.

KF: How should we use this bag in everyday situations?
This small size bag is perfect for a quick errand. It will be nice to make a matching bag in a larger size!

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