I’m involved in running the Otome Sewing Bee Summer Sew Along and this season its all about handmade bags.

Of the 3 patterns we are featuring (above), I’m in charge of the Frilly Pillow Bag.

Its a great practicle sized bag that holds A4, so is bound to be useful.  These style bags are a solid trend in Japan at the moment amongst Larme brands like RoseMarie Seoir, Katie and Maison De Fleur.


Here are the instructions and pattern.
