Hi everybody,

the book Omiyage (Komiko Sudo) was brought to my attention by a craftster and I bought it right away. I made this pouch from it:

Instead of antique silk kimonos I used old pillow cases, sheets and a duvet cover.

The green fabric I used lent itself beautifully for the button on the bottom:

Anybody else made this pouch?

(I couldn't see the pictures so I modified the message - hope you can see them now!)

cheers Rineke

Never made the pouch, but I really like the flower.

Beautiful!  I have this book, but I haven't made this particular pouch; it's a bit beyond me, I'm afraid!  I love the way it turned out.

I do personal swappies!  Just PM me!

I'm also looking for a date to the winter dance...

Beautiful job!!  I love your color choices.  I have this book also, aren't her projects gorgeous?  I haven't made this bag yet, is it possible to use a machine for piecing the strips?  My hand sewing isn't always that great!

Hi again
The pouch is absolutely easy to make, almost every part of it is squarish. So you can do almost the whole thing with the sewing machine. The only things I did by hand was sewing the lining in, making the button and sewing that on. And the string ends. Thanx for you reactions!
