This Japanese Knot Bag is all the rage right now, make one in less than an hour and wear it out for the evening or take it shopping tomorrow!
Simple Japanese Knot Bag
The Japanese have a way with beautiful design. This fabric handbag is no exception! It is simple and sleek in construction. It would be beautiful in any array of colors or fabrics. Wear it to the grocery store, take it to school, bring it to the theater or even the symphony. You will have compliments every where you go, I promise!
I have joined a number of sewing groups on Facebook. Since I have been sewing for so long it’s easy for me to put projects together without really thinking a lot about it. Being in a group of people who are learning to sew has been good for me. It’s helped me see things in a different light. Most people like simple projects and want simple patterns and simple directions to go with them.
This bag is no exception. Simple and beautiful.
The floral fabric in this project is 100 percent cotton. It is none other than the Hoffman Challenge Print of the year. If you aren’t familiar with the Hoffman Challenge, it’s a sewing and design contest put on each year by Hoffman Fabrics of California. I have always dreamed of submitting a design for this challenge in quilting, apparel design or home decor creations. I missed the deadline yet again this year, but I still purchased the fabric as you can see.
Maybe next year I will actually get my project completed before the deadline! Anyway, this stunning digital print, titled “Blooms” was a no brainer for this simple bag design. The beautiful cotton fabric shows through in this bag’s simple construction.
My pattern for this project is available to purchase for $6.00 in my new pattern shop, Chambray Blues Sewing Patterns. I will have more details on the new site VERY soon, but you will be able to order it through my link below (affiliate).
