Kimonos are very pretty, but we seldom have chances to wear them. I enjoy looking at kimonos and fabrics on ichiroya website, and one time, I saw an obi fabric blot I instantly fell in love with, I ordered it but put it away because I was too busy. Tonight, I used the fabric to make a clutch / pouch. I am so happy to make this piece of fabric into something practical to use.
The fabric bolts at ichiroya are great handicraft material, they are very beautiful and economical. I think I will make more of these pouches in different colours as gifts for my friends.
