...in collaboration with Karen Stevens.

Karen and I have combined forces to offer a kit of my screen printed and other fabrics to make your own unique Japanese Rice Pouch with Karen's awesome pattern.

Karen's pattern is a modern take on the Japanese Komebukuro, a traditional pouch used in Japan to carry rice offerings to the temple during religious ceremonies, or to hold gifts destined for a close friend or relative. Komebukuro bags were hand sewn in a patchwork style using a mix of whatever fabrics were on hand, and closed with a cotton drawstring cord. This is a perfect project to use scraps of fabric and add your own unique style. You can be as simple or complex as you’d like. And it is fully reversible! The perfect size to carry around your latest knitting project, or use it as a lunch tote!

This listing is for the fabrics only. To order the PDF pattern please visit Karen's shop below.
