As we move towards reducing the use of plastic bags, we should start bringing our own eco bags when we go shopping! Wouldn't it be more special if you're using an eco bag sewn by yourself? We're very excited to introduce our new project -- Eco Bag エコバッグ. It is not only spacious and roomy to carry your groceries, it can also be folded into a small pouch to keep in your handbags. This project is also our first project crafting with Nylon Taffeta which is lightly water resistant and makes the bag weigh approximately only 80 grams. Alternatively, you can opt to work with light cotton fabrics instead. This project is also available as a workshop
