So, when I was looking for a gift bag recently for a birthday present for my niece I thought that it might be the answer to my search.
The kit is the Hana Japanese Bag Kit and it couldn't have been more straightforward to put together. Hana apparently means flower in Japanese and the bag is named for the petal like appearance of the top flaps when the drawstring is closed. It was so quick to make and took only two FQ's of fabric plus the cord and two beads that I am sure that I will be making this again. So much more useful than a paper wrapping too :)
With the completed Sashiko cushion for my son, I am surprised to find that I have used everything that I bought or tried at the workshop. I usually have an unfinished piece of something hanging about for ages after classes or workshops, so it definitely makes a pleasant change to actually have some finished objects to show for my time.
Sadly the same cannot be said yet for the recent class on couching, where this is all I have to show for my time so far!
Not even any couching in sight either, however, my order of fancy new threads has now arrived so, hopefully, that will change soon :)
Well, once I work out what to do with them that is!
