This is my next project! I sewed the obi-belt (kimono belt) with an obi- belt fabric, so I made the clutch bag using the leftovers. I embroidered on it with paper yarn: Leafy. The yarn is made of Washi (a kind of Japanese paper, and is washable and very light!). Obi-belt fabric is very hard and it's good for making a clutch bag.
I am glad that I made the matching obi-belt and bag.
I am making my first kimono project for spring now (I have to learn to wear a kimono more!). Making a kimono is a tough job for me because I have to sew all the parts by hand. However, I enjoy making my kimono and am looking forward to finishing it.
Fabric: Cape 60" 2 1/4yd
Total time spent: 12 hours
