I did something a little steampunky again ^-^ It’s nothing to get too excited about, just a little pouch that I thought would work nicely looped through someone’s belt. Last year I made by boyfriend Batman-themed utility pouches that were a ton of fun to sew, so I wanted to dabble in it again. Since I still had lots of leftover brown and gold fabrics, the combination of this little brown pouch with gold gears seemed like a nice fit! I can totally imagine wearing this on my belt to hold my scissors, pins, and measuring tape >w< It features a flap with turn lock closure, two upper loops for going around your belt, and a small gusset on the bottom to give it a bit of extra depth.
This bag was inspired by one of my favorite characters from the Japanese company San-X. They’re much like Sanrio in that they design adorable characters and market them with plush toys, stationery, accessories, you name it. They have a pair of piggies there called Monokuro Boo, which loosely translates to “monochrome pig,” except, you know, it’s said in that cutesy Japanese style ^w^
They’re called that because the two little pair of piggies are usually colored black and white. Their slogan is “Simple is best!” and their design follows that to a T; with simple hearts, clovers and other shapes that aren’t too gaudy. It’s minimalism in its cutest form, and though I’ve taken the piggies out of their black and white color scheme, I thought the fabrics I used to make this bag nicely reflected their simple aesthetic.
This teal fabric was leftover from a skirt I made waay back when, and with some scraps of brown faux suede, green twill, and khaki linen, the scheme made me think of fall farmer’s market shopping, or some other similar relaxing pastime. So I thought a bag that you could use to haul around your fresh shopping goodies seemed perfect ❤
Yes, I’m bringing back more Miyazaki x3 As much as I would have liked to do another character, the colors in this print that I had so much of just couldn’t stop reminding me of a Miyazaki color scheme – very earthy yet bright but not overly saturated. This dark brown faux suede that I thought matched perfectly made me think of what soot sprites would look like in a different color. So this is the result!
It’s a very huge tote bag that’s perfect for carrying around loads of groceries or other shopping, and the handles have an adorable shape to them that I thought was fun to come up with.
