This multi-purpose case allows you to carry a variety of cards and items. The zipper closure will make it safe and secure. The lovely rabbit and bear animal print fabric is from the PASTEL POP series. The coordinated multiple color tones with a feature animal design combined with small hearts fabric are perfect to enjoy making patchworked items

We interviewed Ayumi about her creation:
Kokka Fabric (KF): What did you think of the fabric you used for this project?
The animals and heart motifs in the soft tones of pastel are so lovely that I truly enjoyed making this piece. The well-coordinated colors in PASTEL POP series work great without looking busy even when you combine it with all different designs. In particular, this striped fabric can be worked in many ways. One way to use it is as a bias binding strip. Another way is to use it vertically or horizontally to create a different look.
KF: Can you tell us any special elements or ideas that you incorporated into this creation?
There are two standard A6 size pockets for papers and notebooks. Six smaller pockets are for various cards. Also included is a pen holder. All the things you need can be stored in this single case. With the zipper closure, you don’t have to worry about losing important items inside.
KF: What are some tips for making this case?
When sewing the layered pockets, make sure to align small and large pocket openings horizontally, otherwise the uneven look might bother you. Mark the spot so that the pieces will line up when sewing. Since the zipper width becomes the gusset width, the stitch line should be placed at 1cm from the zip teeth. For the curve, use small stitches and gather corners as you sew.
KF: How should we use this case in everyday situations?
It will make an excellent gift for different occasions.
KF: Thank you very much, Ayumi! Here are sewing instructions along with step by step photos from her. Enjoy crafting!
