Japanese Knot Bag with Carolyn Forster

Carolyn Forster knot bag workshop

These traditional Japanese bags are cleverly made from a rectangle of fabric that has been embellished with hand sashiko-style stitching.

They are a great way to use lovely fabrics to wrap that special gift, and can be re-used as  sewing project bags, or passed on with another gift inside.
This Knot bag is a variation on the one featured in Carolyn’s book “Big Stitch Quilting” due out in May 2021.

We are including a free copy of Carolyn’s book with this workshop if you book by 13th June 2021.

Also within the book you will see the combination of these fabrics used to make Japanese Wrapping cloths commonly used in the Japanese art of gift wrapping, Furoshiki.

These bags and cloths are a lovely way to add that special touch to your gift giving. You can make a start on either or both of the projects on the day.
