new bag

This new granny boston bag is on Auction Japan from today.
This is my first "Black" bag.

I have had a great result from the auction last week!
It made me feel very happy that my bags are being appreciated by many people!
I still have a lot of new ideas to put into this design, and also I have a new style in mind too.
I will be making few simple bags for my HP in future, but for now, I will be making more bags for the auction.

antique linen travel bag

My new bag is this big travel boston bag.
It will be in Etsy until 25th May.

The main fabric is an antique Hungarian linen which has a nice old tint to it.
The fabric is very tough and thick, and so I have used the edges of the fabric around the zipper and on the sides.

The inside fabric is a beautiful Japanese print.

Sashiko granny boston bag

This sashiko granny boston is now in Etsy until 14th May.
I have always wanted to design a bag with a simple sashiko stitches, but never came up with a design that I really like.
This design has came to me 2 days ago, and so I have started off by stitching sashiko on this antique Hungarian linen.
Then I hand painted blues and reds as I feel like, cut them out with my instinct, placed them in places with my feeling, and then chose matching fabrics.
I always enjoy designing bags from fabric, but it is very time consuming and the inspiration never come easily. I hope it does come more frequently since I really enjoy the work.

I have stitched a kanji "Ame" (meaning rain) for the front blue drop design, and

"Haru" (meaning spring) to the back pink drop design.
