Sewing is similar to pottery; to create something from scrap into a usable object is full of satisfaction.
I like D.I.Y. anything I could do and enjoy the process of mix matching different materials and color. I used to sew a lot of fabric items, including clothing.
Recently, I started making handmade leather bag. Both of them have similarities that requires patience and the tricks to a nice item is the pattern cutting.
The following sewing items are made of local source fabric. I wish to collect good quality fabric and produce a product category of Fabric Collections sooner or later.

Pick of the Day
A friend bought me a wiping cloth and a glass mushroom from New Zealand. I love their pleasant color scheme.
The floral graphic of the cloth and the form of the mushroom are very good inspiration for my pottery work.
I like to get graphical idea from fabric pattern when creating my pottery art.

The Second Leather Tote Bag
This bag is made of one big piece of genuine calf leather with simple cutting. I have also made another sell item- Leather Tote Bag 001 from the same piece of leather with different cutting.
That one have two pieces of leather on the sides to improve its bag volume and more three dimensional.

I would like to express many thanks to the Customers who had ordered 6 no. of Custom-made Leather Tote Bags.
All of them are with different details such as bag cutting, bag size, leather and thread color.
Pick of the Day
I have found a shop near Kiyomizu-dera called "KYO-TO-TO" selling very beautiful Embroidery Badges during my trip to Kyoto.
I stitched the badges onto my old shirts to give them a whole new look.
