My new tote bag! Actually I wasn’t planning to make more bags but then I found this canvas fabric with interesting panel print. One panel is showing a Maneki Neko or Fortune Cat, and the other panel is Mountain Fuji. The print is interesting enough that I want to show it off as much as… Continue Reading

This mesh nylon tote bag is very simple project that has quickly became a favourite of mine.
