I have acquired quite the nice collection of Japanese craft books but have never tried a project until now. I've been doing alot of very fiddly, precise work with the paper piecing blocks I've been working on and felt the need to do some "free form" sewing. I picked out the mini log cabin bag from Suzuko Koseki's Patchwork Style.
I used lots of scraps and just had lots of fun improvising as I went.
The bag is quite small - about 8 1/2" long, so I may use it for a pencil pouch.
***Happy Sewing to You***
