A lovely color combination of yellow and pink is enhanced with strawberry motifs. Fans of sweet items will absolutely adore this vanity case! Patchwork style is created by hand quilting along the fabric’s motifs. The featured fabrics are from the Yumekawa Mix series for the main panel and ribbon, and the Very Cotton series with strawberry design for the lid and bottom.

We interviewed Ayumi about her creation:
Kokka Fabric (KF): What did you think of the fabric you used for this project?
The border design is filled with various lovely elements like scallops, stripes and dots in beautiful color tones. It allows you to create many parts out of this single fabric. What is nice is that you don’t have to worry about the color combination as it has a perfect blend of colors.
KF: Can you tell us any special elements or ideas that you incorporated into this creation?
A thick quilt batting is added for hand quilting along the motifs. It makes cute dimensional scallop patterns, like a patchwork.
The ribbon made out of the border design is added on the lid, also serving as a handle.
KF: What are some tips for making this case?
1. Make sure to choose a solid and thick quilt batting so that the bag stays stable.
2. Baste the pieces first, when sewing the main panel and bottom together. It is important. For the areas around the curve, adding slits on the seam will create a clean finish.
3. Align the center first, then baste, when attaching the zipper. When putting it on the lid, place it slightly inward.
KF: How should we use this case in everyday situations?
It is the perfect size as a cosmetic case. This time, I thought it would be well-suited for knitting supplies, as you can pull out the yarn when working on your knitting piece.
KF: Thank you very much, Ayumi Here are sewing instructions along with step by step photos from her. Enjoy crafting!
