I have been working frantically to get these bags sewn for one of the other foreign mums here in Japan. The kindergarten gave her zero notice about the bags required, she doesn't sew and was unable to find the "right" sizes in stores.
Her little man is keen on Thomas the Tank Engine. I'm really pleased with how these bags have turned out. Biggie and I chose the fabrics together. The outer is quilted fabric. By chance we found exactly the same pattern and color for the lining.
Kindergarten is three years in Japan so these bags have to withstand a lot of wear and tear. They are stuffed to the gills each week with art projects, P.E gear and outdoor sneakers. They need to be washed frequently which is why this gorgeous oxford cotton by Kokka is perfect for the task. It washes beautifully, rarely needs ironing and hardly fades over time.
I hope my little customer is happy with his new bags. I also hope he is not a blog reader because his mom wants to be surprised when they receive their package!
