What materials did you use? For the exterior, I used some nubby Japanese fabric that I got at the Houston International Quilt festival. For the interior, I used some Kaffe Fasset shot cottons. The handles and tags were made with plain black broadcloth with a decorative stitch on my machine that reminded me of sashimi (orange peel) to complete the Japanese theme. I also used two sports zippers, various fusible interfacings, hand-made bias binding in black, and bag feet to protect the bottom.
