Simple clutch made of Japanese *obi* fabrics ☆母から譲り受けた帯でふくさを作りました☆

Several months back, I made this simple clutch using Japanese *obi* or traditional sash worn around Japanese kimono. 


Here are the Japanese *obi* that were handed down from my mom. It took me some courage to make that first cut into one of these beautiful obi fabrics! Phew!


When my hubby and I attended our friend's wedding recently, I used this clutch to store monetary gift to the newly wed couple. (Note: It's a Japanese custom to bring cash to the wedding reception, wrapped in a special envelope as shown in above photo).


Simple clutch opened.


Gorgeous embroidery stitched entirely on the back side.


I'd like to make more handmade items using these exceptionally beautiful Japanese *obi* fabrics. Happy *obi* stitching!
