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."

Oh man, this sashiko method is so gorgeous that I simply must make this bag right away! I can also think of all sorts of other things I could use sashiko for. Japanese design, to me, is always so understatedly beautiful and stylish that I just can not resist. I have already taken out the fabrics that I will be using for the bag so I am now off to begin!

The sashiko denim bag is such a lovely bag, it seems to have been quite the labor of love. I love the stitching it is like a form of embroidery. What a wonderful way to repurpose old clothes such as denim and cottons. What type of needle should one use to sew through those thick layers? It seems that embroidering through multiple layers of jeans might be a bit challenging but obviously worthwhile in the end. Thank you for sharing this project.
