In this book there are six fun projects that will help you travel in style. The Weekender is just the right size for an overnight stay. Organise your make-up or toiletries in the Cosmetic Bag. If you take along the Laundery Bag for your dirty clothes, you will make unpacking a snap.

I designed the Crossbody Bag especially for a trip to New York City. I wanted a padded pocket for my I-Pad and shoulder pad for comfort.

When you are not travelling then the Hanging Garment Bag will keep the dust of your favourite clothes.

20 projects inspired by Wagashi--tiny but beautifully crafted Japanese candies. Each one is a piece of art in miniature.

Patterns for 20 handcrafted projects, each an exquisite accessory and a tiny work of art, are provided in this step-by-step guide. The centerpiece of the handbook is a range of stunning fabric jewelry—necklaces, bracelets, and earrings—crafted from silks or cottons complemented by a colorful decorative cord that is woven or knotted into unique designs, called kumihimo. Instructions are provided for several unusual craft techniques including Japanese knotwork, Delica beading, and fabric origami, each with color drawings and step-by-step directions. Projects are accompanied by color photographs evocative of contemporary Japanese style, and every chapter opens with a wonderful original watercolor by the author, as well as text providing reflections on Japanese life and art.
