Hana drawstring bags

I made two drawstring bags yesterday.
I hand embroidered flowers with Sashiko thread.
This yellow fabric is what I got about 10 years ago. I made my shirt with it (* v *).

I like their shape. It's easy to make. I'd like to write here how to make the drawstring bag next time.


I also made some patchwork bias tapes and patchwork strings for a custom order. It takes much time but I like making them very much. I'd like to share my favorite fabrics with other people who likes sewing.

Fortunately, I have orders every day these days. I could go to see Bo-chan every day and he is quite well.

The owner of Bo-chan likes flowers. So there are lots of flowers near him.
I love this purple!

I also love this little pink flowers.

He can see many flowers. Also there is a small river in front of him and there are lots of cherry trees by the river.
I hope he could end his happy life there.
Thank you very much for everyone, I talked to him your kind words. He seemed like listening my words.

Oh, I'd like to show you cute cats at last.

They are cats live near Bo-chan(One is in the window). The owner of this house has two cats in house, and she also feeds some cats live near her.

I'm happy to see many dogs and cats around my house.

Your drawstring bags are really cute, and I loved the story of the little dog. He must be happy to receive so much affection from you!

Bo-chan is my favorite! I love dogs, and that's why I have three. I also really like your Cat-Eating-Fish and Rabbit-Eating Carrot pouches. It would be wonderful if you posted instructions for those.
