Lockdown Lunchtime – Large IKEA Style Holdall

November 23, 2020 / 0 Comments

Hold all is right for this make… It holds an enormous amount of everything really. It’s also absolutely perfect for you lining your shopping trolly if you use a hand scanner system when supermarket shopping.

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.
