Drawstring Patchwork Bags

kinchaku-04-1

 

Tomomi’s class description:

Drawstring bags are what we, Japanese had as bags to put things in and carry before Western bags came (Furoshiki, wrapping cloth is other type of item used for carrying things but they are not bag shaped).

Traditionally these small bags are made from scraps out of other sewing jobs. Also young girls made these to practice sewing skills and carried small bits and pieces.

Since they have flat bottom and wide opening, you can see what is inside very easily and they sit on well too.

They can be made in any size but the smaller the cuter, let’s make them in palm size!

Go through all your scrap collection and find nice combination of fabrics.

If you’re interested in taking this class, be sure to contact us at corkips@gmail.com, spaces are limited!
