Blue and White Sashiko Drawstring Pouch Pattern

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!

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.
