The Blue and White Sashiko Drawstring Bag is a Jane MacDonald design and includes comprehensive instructions. A modern take on the Japanese Komebukuro, a traditional pouch used in Japan to carry rice offerings to the temple during religious ceremonies, or to hold gifts destined for a close friend or relative. Komebukuro bags were hand sewn in a patchwork style using a mix of whatever fabrics were on hand, and closed with a cotton drawstring cord. The gentle movement of the sashiko stitches look like the undulations of a mountain landscape. This blue and white drawstring bag is a joy to make. The perfect size to carry around your latest knitting project, or use it as a lunch tote!

I love this bag - such simple but appealing stitching.

I haven't made the bag yet, but I have the supplies in hand and have read through the instructions. I was intrigued by the simplicity of the sashiko stitching given the impact of the design.
I am clearing the decks of unfinished projects and saving this one for when I can concentrate on it, but it will be soon -- I really can't resist it. I am very excited both to make this bag and then to use it. Even the little flowers at the ends of the cording are special.

So cute

This little bag was an easy introduction to sashiko. It was a quick little project and very relaxing to make. It’s handy for all types of items and looks great too.

Ready, set, stitch!
