Hand Stitched Quilted Drawstring Bag


Hand Stitched Quilted Drawstring Bag


Learn to stitch in-person with Karen Stevens!


This class will focus on slowing down and using hand-stitching techniques to create a simple and beautiful small drawstring bag out of pieced linen, cotton and embroidery or sashiko thread. The shape is inspired by the Japanese Komebukuro bag, the traditional pouch used to carry rice offerings. A layer of cotton batting and quilt stitches is added creating a lovely textured surface and lending more structure to the bag. It is perfect for carrying around a few favorite stitching supplies, or as a small handbag for essentials. Finished size: 5” round.


You will learn hand sewing skills that can be applied to any other sewing project. You will gain an arsenal of skills that will allow you to approach other sewing with a kind of slowness and mindfulness only hand stitching can bring. Whether a keepsake on its own, or intended as keeper of personal treasures, these techniques and this pouch will bring joy to your heart.
