Full Coordinate 全身コーディネート

One of the few clothing designs that I have. The t-shirt is one of my oldest creation,made about a year ago. The t-shirt was made from a stretchable cotton material, the ribbons hand-stitched to the t-shirt. I chose the checked linen material for the stole as it has a different pattern of subtle purple and grey on both sides, giving the stole a 2-way look.
The skirt is my latest creation, a spontaneous idea after reading some fashion magazines. Sewing the material to the thick elastic band directly gives the skirt this fluffy look.
All together, trala! A girly look!

Wax-sealed letter シーリングワクスと手紙

This will be my second post for my "100 little happiness" project.
Wax-sealed letter. No specific reason, I just love them!
Gives me a nostalgic feeling



Holga bags!! ホルガのバッグ!!

Finally I managed to finish my latest project, the Holga bag! Holga is a simple inexpensive toy camera and I LOVE the pictures that it takes! Mine is a relatively new model, the 135BC which uses 35mm films instead of the 120 films that the original Holga use. The bags that I have shown here are made specifically for the 135BC model.

Due to the simplicity of this camera, it doesn't have a strap neither hooks to attach a neck strap. So these bags that I made will serve the purpose of keeping your hands free as you can the camera over the shoulder. The straps are adjustable so that you can hang it over the neck at its shortest length and over the shoulders when extended.

I have also carefully designed them to skip the hassle of taking the camera out of the bag every time I'd like to snap a picture. The bag covers all parts of the camera except for the functional parts like the lens, finder window and release button. So all you have to do is take the lens cover off and snap!

Above all these useful functions, these bags were created so that it enhances the unique features of the camera, making each Holga with these bags different!
