Her Kin-cha-ku aka {drawstring bag}

 { S for Stella}

 { additional handle for s}

 { S kept telling me, the deer print is SO cute}

 { took longer time to make it}

 { she wants to take it window shopping}

{ her kin-cha-ku}

One of S' holiday present was {Mr. Rocky} kin-cha-ku aka {drawstring bag}. It took longer time to make, since she's in bed around 9a.m. Each night, I took about 30 minutes or longer for the hand-quilting then tuck it away.  It was hard to decided if I should personalized this bag for her, but I did! I used the her initial S in the back of the bag. When she open the box for few second she asked why not Stella, maybe next one, I replied.

After made four different kin-cha-ku, {here}, {here}, {here}, {here}. I knew I had to change something for S'.  She needs a handle to carry it! The only time she carries her purse is when she needs to buy something from the store. The messenger bag I made for her is getting smaller, but she still loves it.

With the new kin-cha-ku, I though she could put her wallet inside and maybe things that she needs.The closure is on the top, so that would leave extra room for her to use. Hand-quilting is perfect for it.

edit: thank you for email me about the large PDF files that you aren't able to access to.. I got both pattern resize and ready to go.. shouldn't have problem, but do let me know! Enjoy~
