Linen Tie Top Bags

March 26, 2021 / 1 Comment

Over the weekend I removed our linen tip top bags from sale (formally called Azuma Bukuro bags) and here is why… There has been a lot of information recently in regards to the cultural appropriation of terms, specifically when it comes to ‘kimono sleeves’ and alike. In the past year since releasing the tutorials, kits, videos and now the bags I’ve done a lot of research and what I felt was the correct thing to do was to honour the…

To Do List or Schedule?

January 18, 2021 / 0 Comments

This is a very new concept for m so it’s something I thought I would share with you to. The difference between having a to-do list and scheduling tasks has been a game changer for me, let me explain. A to do list in my world is a list (probably one of many lists) that sit’s in my notebook and I keep adding to it… in fact I add to it so often that it quickly becomes a mountain I…

Cookies With Eve

January 5, 2021 / 0 Comments

Mums birthday catches me by surprise every year and after 2020 with was arguably one of the more difficult years I’ve lived through I though now would be a good time to start some positive traditions with Eve on mums birthday… Rather than the slightly destructive ones I’d adopted in past years. You were all amazing and incredibly forthcoming with your recipes when I asked for recommendations on instagram for Choc Chip Cookies that even I could manage to make.…

Azuma Bukuro – Make With Me

October 10, 2020 / 0 Comments

Through the out the month of September I’ve been doing a series of videos on the different stages when making your Azuma Bukuro bag. Rather than a Make-A-Long where I make one too and only post photos this time I’m going to run a series of live videos and IGTV videos around making your bags. The aim is that along with the booklet that you can download we will go through the stages together and create something you’re really proud…

#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.…

Better late than never – Better never late!
