Hello everyone! I hope you all are having a good year so far! I can’t believe we’re already in March 😀 I’ve been chugging along with book edits and updating my Etsy store for the past month. For March I’ll be fulfilling orders for all the new aviator hats and hoodies I’ve been selling to you wonderful folks, but hopefully in my off time I … Continue reading New Freebie Plush Pattern for March!
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 ❤
Haha! So simple but so awesome! x3 My best friend commissioned me to make these for a party she was throwing some months back, and it was so simple to put together I just had to share. This is the ubiquitous Triforce from the Legend of Zelda series, and definitely one of my favorite video games as a kid.
I needed a break from making bags! So I dove into my stash of fleece scraps so I could whip up one of these to share with you. It’s super simple to put together if you’re familiar at all with matching up sharp corners of fabric – like cubes or, in this case, triangles. The goal of course is to make the points of your triangle in the middle line up perfectly sharp and even, but the fleece is very forgiving so if you haven’t done it before this is a good place to start!
