Odekake Bag

I completed two commisioned Odekake bags this morning for my friends. As I was clipping excess threads and sewing the openning, I remembered the first Odekake bag I made about a year ago. I saw the pattern in one of the sewing books I got from the local library here. The thing that caught my attention about the bag is the wide openning and how you dont have to fiddle looking for keys or something. Odekake means going out in Japanese and I think the bag is perfect for going out *grin*   

The features of MyBotanG Odekake bag:
2 side pockets
3 deep expandable inside pockets
magnetic snap button for closure
Size: 45cm (l) x 21cm (h) x 13.5cm (w)

You can see more pictures and read more about my Odekake bags here and here.
I used Alexander Henry KOTO fabric for the bags above.

you're so lucky to be living in a place where all the nice fabrics are! I do so like the Japanese colour schemes that I see in their craft books. And this material for your bag is just great! I usually buy the so-called Japanese fabrics from Kamdar here.
