Leather – Leather in the UK is sold by the square foot, you’ll want to purchase a nice piece of leather shoulder for this project. 2mm thick is ideal but you can use a thicker…

Azuma Bukuro bag – Mitred Corner Tutorial

July 28, 2020 / 0 Comments

As part of the Azuma Bukuro tutorial I refer to a mitred corner. This is the process of folding, pressing and cutting a corner to make a really nice crisp corner on the 4 corners of your bag. It’s simple enough but accuracy is key. Firstly press all your seams – if you’re using a dark fabric like I am you may like to use a chalk marker and mark your lines just to make sure you’ve got everything in…

#12 Azuma Bukuro

July 28, 2020 / 2 Comments

I received a really interesting email from a lovely customer explaining to me why my use of the term ‘bento bag’ was incorrect. I’m so great full to her for taking the time to educate me on this and you may have already read my email on the subject. To re-cap a bento bag is a bag carrying your bento (Sounds simple right?… bento is a term used for food as I understand it) and so the correct term for…

Curated Collections – August

July 28, 2020 / 0 Comments

The idea of the curated collections came about as an alternative to subscription boxes and alike, I’ve had the idea of paring things for quite some time as I try to choose fabrics and materials so that they all work beautifully together but how to really showcase this and make them stand out? Each month there will be a different set that can be purchased together, some you make have seen before, others may be new products but each will…

#10 – Here at Last… The #04

January 24, 2020 / 2 Comments

A while ago I made a small selection of #04’s in a variety of colours and they proved very popular so I’ve been waiting for the time to make more of them and I’ve managed to put together a collection now of bags in Berry, Mustard, Black and Grey. Each bag has a great feature on it’s base, a small popper that enables you to square off the base and use the bag as a bucket too. You can see…

#09 – The Return of Good Intentions

January 20, 2020 / 4 Comments

So last year I came up with a really simple way of making up bento style bags, both hand sewn and machined… I was going to make tutorials within the month and get them up online for everyone to access, but life happened. This is however my goal for the nest few months. I have little to no video editing experience so I can’t guarantee that the video will be the best thing but hopefully it will be informative and…

#07 – Something for the Grey Days

January 15, 2020 / 0 Comments

I’m based in the UK and so as the stereotypes would have you believe we are all obsessed with the weather… To be honest I live by the ‘no such thing as bad weather only unsuitable clothing’ and to a certain extend and living with a dog that needs a lot of walking this is true. However it has been very grey recently… I’m missing the vibrancy of colour that the spring brings or the warm gorgeous tones of autumn.…
