Square Drawstring Bag With Boro Style Decoration

"A square drawstring bag, otherwise known as a Komebukuro or Japanese rice bag is a little more complicated to make than a basic drawstring bag but is still simple enough to be attempted by someone without lots and lots of sewing experience. These bags have a lovely fat shape and can be decorated in any way you like.

I used a simple boro style that uses small pieces of scrap fabric and just a couple of very easy hand stitches. You can, of course, skip the embellishment step and just make a sweet square komebukuro bag from a beautiful fabric that you’d like to showcase."
