Drawstring mini tote bags


Hello!  How have you been?

It's been a while since my last post (three weeks?) but I'm so glad to be back with my latest creations to show you today...

I just added these mini drawstring tote bags in my shop.  





The bag exterior is made of a combination of Japanese imported cotton print and home decor fabrics.  Home decor fabrics are used for the bag handles and the bottom, for added sturdiness.






The bags are fully lined with 100% cotton and fleece batting.  It's perfect to be used as everyday tote, or as a lunch bag (or a "bento bag" as we call it in Japan) or snack bag.

As you can see, the tote has a drawstring opening, but you can easily fold the drawstring part inward to use the bag as ordinary mini tote (without the drawstring).




And BTW... do you remember from my last post how my kitchen looked like during the remodeling, after everything had been removed?  It was totally empty like this...


After few weeks, the remodeling is finally over (phew!), and here is a snap shot of a our kitchen now...




I am so happy (and relieved) that now I'm able to cook and eat in our kitchen.  Living without a kitchen (especially with kids) was tougher than I had imagined...!!

  I literally had to "cook" in our living room with my rice cooker, microwave, refrigerator, and a Japanese portable gas cartridge stove, and I washed those plastic dishes and utensils in our shower!! (Well, I could of disposed them, but I didn't want to throw away everything during our construction, which lasted over several weeks...)

Thanks so much for visiting my blog, and happy cooking and crafting to you all :-D

Actually, I did not make this one, but it was a handmade gift from my friend... Lucky me :D
