This small pouch is completely hand-sewn, from a kit I bought from Japan. It was designed by Sachie Niinomi and the kit was produced by Olympus. It took me 6 good hours to make.
I am totally addicted to Japanese craft kits. I keep raving about them. Most of the smaller items require total hand sewing. They do take quite a bit of time and patience to make, for something so small. But the designs are beautiful. And I hope they make heartfelt little gifts for my friends.
