Make a Sashiko Bag
Learn the traditional Japanese technique for embellishing fabric: Sashiko stitching.
Sashiko was used by the Japanese working class to extend the life of the fabric that they used for clothing and household textiles. Traditionally, even white stitches were sewn on dark blue cotton fabric to mend, strengthen and quilt the fiber. Over time, Sashiko evolved to become a beautiful fabric embellishment with striking patterns and figures using the same, simple technique of running stitches on textiles.
In this workshop, students will make the simple lined cotton drawstring bag that is used for a variety of occasions in Japan. You can use your bag to carry your sewing or Sashiko supplies.
Students will learn how to:
transfer a Sashiko design to the fabric using stencils and templates;
stitch the design in class;
receive instructions for completing the bag at home or, for those certified on BARN’s Brother sewing machines, during the class or at a BARN open studio.
Suitable for all skill levels, ages 14+.
