rough Japanese modern bag

This is the bag I just made using linens and Kofu (old Kimono fabric).
I have put different fabrics together, and added character with my sashiko.
Size: H 39cm, W 33, D 16

It has a 30cm zipper pocket at the back side, and it has a small pocket inside it.

There are 2 small pockets with a lid on each side to store small items like parking ticket, mobile, i pod, etc.
The bag is opened by a long zipper which is open on both ends.
It has total of 6 pockets and one zipper pocket inside.
You can wear it on your shoulder, or use the strap to hang it on your body.
The bag is on Auction Japan from today.

My new bag with the Liberty

I made this rather large bag with pure linen fabrics and the Liberty fabric.
I have added an extra touch with Sashiko.
The flap is fastened by the magnet hock, and there is one wide pocket under the flap.

This is the back side, and it has one pocket with a zipper pocket inside.
The hock at the top of the bag is to be used to make it a back sack.

Hook it onto the ring attached to the strap like shown above.

This is how it looks when used as a back sack.

Or you can use is as a shoulder bag.

What's with Wasabi?

This is my new ecotan with a french bulldog. :)

I was bombarded with the requests for my granny boston bag,
so I will be working on the bags for a while.
I have started with the first request, with the cross stitch N.
I am using the French cotton of STOF.

I have a nice tip for the Aussies who love our new chips "Grain Waves"!
Get this original one,

Buy Wasabi tube,

Put it on,

and eat it!
Even young kids love it, so see if you like it too!

Chihuahua Ecotan

This is my new ECOTAN!
I put it on Japanese Auction 2 days ago, and it proved to be very popular!

I have also sent 3 of them in different sizes to the gallery in Sydney, and two of them were sold on the day they were displayed on the shelf!
Very encouraging!
I better get on and make more!
