Enjoy this creative, fun and easy project incorporating sashiko and freeform appliqué. This kit contains everything you need to make the bag, and comprehensive instructions for the composition of the front of the bag. The reverse side is up to you! Use the fabrics provided to keep this reverse side simple, or use the skills you have learned to get creative.

Each tote bag made will be unique, as while the composition of the bag is the same, details like the pre-stencilled sashiko and takumi cat blocks and handle colour will vary between each kit.

This kit contains navy and white sashiko threads. If you would like to add hint of colour (Jane added a touch of ST-95 green variegated as seen in the product images) please purchase an additional skein of thread or use some from your stash. This is a wonderful project to get creative and add your personal touch.

2 x pre-stencilled sashiko blocks (designs vary)

2 x Takumi cat blocks (designs vary)

Takumi fabrics

Bag tape for handles 

Sashiko needles

    Ms Miura's Tote Kit

    This kit was generous with fabric and threads, and the instructions were very easy to follow. I absolutely loved turning this kit into my own (slightly different) bag. Now to the next step of being adventurous enough to use it after so many hours of enjoyable stitching.
