Modern Rice Pouch Class with Karen Todd

A traditional komebukuro is a bag for carrying, storing, or gifting rice in Japan. The modern rice pouch is a bag ready for your project on the go or your phone and wallet for a quick trip to the market.
Traditionally, rice bags were made in the boro method, sewing together scraps and patches. You can use scraps of cotton, linen, lightweight denim, etc., to make the exterior. Then decoration is added in the style of sashiko, as much or as little as desired.
  • 1/4 yard (NOT! a FQ) for lining
  • orphan blocks, scraps—large and small—in your favorite color story; enough to make an 8x25" panel for exterior
  • additional fabric for appliques and drawstring tabs
  • 1/2 yd fusible interfacing (ex: SF101)(optional)
  • 6x24 ruler
  • cutting mat and cutter
  • sewing machine and accessories, and the usual sewing supplies
  • embroidery needle
  • sashiko or embroidery floss to coordinate with your scraps

Kit fee of $10 is due to the instructor at the time of the class. This will cover your own copy of the pattern and the twill drawstrings.
