Class: Hand Stitched Japanese Rice pouch with Kim, November 17, 2022, Morning or afternoon
Relax, take a breath and enjoy the rhythm of hand stitching with Kim, while you create your own personalized Komebukuro. In Japan, traditional pouches were used to carry rice offerings to temples during religious ceremonies, or as gifts for friends or relatives. This is a modern rendition of those pouches, designs by KZ Stevens, suitable for use as a project bag, gift bag, lunch bag or even a purse.
Materials include the paper pattern, fabrics, sashiko threads and cording to construct and embellish the reversible bag. Fabrics include Nani Iro and other assorted linens, Sevenberry homespuns, assorted denims, some hand dyed cottons and others from our archives. Everything you need to create your own unique hand sewn treasure.
The finished bag is 6"x 6" x 6"
