Leamington Spa, ...
I got all excited about sashiko (from seeing Blossom by fuccosim on here, and it inspired me to have a little bash at the technique) and wanting to make something based on my Geisha dolls that I was given as a pressie from Japan. I eventually decided on a bag. I used this pattern from the lovely blog machenmachen ;
Which I found really good, I did make it differently to the instructions though as I added piping and didn’t bother with the pocket or key strap… due to me being lazy. I also changed the handles too as I had no confidence in making the tear drop shape look anything but BADLY home made.
All in all it is a handy little bag and I really love the colour blocking and the clashing of the piping. However, I don’t think the white top will stay white long.
