For today’s project, I decided to hone my drawstring bag techniques. While I won’t talk too much about my faults (ie the lower left curve of the slipper bag is too angular, not rounded), I will talk about what inspired me. The small floral prints are reminiscent of summertime, which is just around the corner here in New Zealand, and so are the cherries and pair of Japanese zori (slippers or as they say here, jandals). The cherry bag is called Noelle (my friend who asked for cherries and who is a December “summer” baby) and the zori bag is Natsuko, which means “summer child”. They’ll come with matching journals for writing your work in progress.
