Worth the wait

My Kogin project

The bag I designed for my last Kogin class has been bugging me.  I'm just not happy with the finish.  It is the interfacing I used that is the problem I think.  So it needs to be redesigned.  As usual I always write and evaluation of each project and when I went into my journal to do this I found some other notes I had made about interfacing.

The prices have increased a bit since I wrote this up but I have selected 3 or 4 I want to test out.

At the end of the other class I had some fabric left over so I am stitching another 4 bags which are all based around the original design.  I still have a couple more to stitch up but as I find this stitching so pleasurable that isn't a problem.


I will use Japanese fabric for the cuff on all except one and I want to see what my daughter can do with a leather cuff.

I came on some lovely plated leather cord.  It wasn't cheap but I think it will add to the finish.

I have to stitch up the other bags first but I will let you know the results.

That's a gorgeous cord!

Yes, the ends are not sealed but luckily I have lots of Bees wax from the Bee hives to seal it with.
