Echino Accessories

I would not be doing my job if I did not note (with a certain degree of excitement) the new patterns and patches that also came in the Kokka box.  We have three individual Echino bag patterns and two sets of iron-on echino patches that I think you're going to really like. In addition to this bag, there's a laptop bag and a messenger style bag available. 

The patterns are in Japanese, so there are a few things to consider:

  • The diagrams are very good, to scale, and show all measurements in centimetres.  They are generally missing a seam allowance, so you need to cut with that in mind. 

  • If you are having a hard time deciphering the diagram, Jennifer at Moving Hands has put together a glossary of terms that you may find helpful.  Mari at the Purl Bee also has a wonderful post on drafting patterns from Japanese sewing book, complete with diagrams and things to watch out for.
