Sashiko Denim Bag
"Create a denim sashiko tote bag - the term sashiko stems from Japan centuries ago when running stitches were used to visible mend clothes. Join up denim scraps together to create a beautiful bag. Choose a variety of colours of threads to stitch, thinking about the patterns created by the direction of the stitching. The bag is given a professional edge by installing leather handles with cap rivets. The finished bag is a great size, perfect for taking your lunch to work or collecting library books."
