Kofu Tsumugi fat quarters 'lucky bag' - 'cool colours'
Do you know the Japanese New Year sale tradition of the Lucky Bag? You get a great value discounted selection of goodies, but you can't look inside the bag first - it's a mystery. Lucky bags may be themed by products (stationery, accessories, makeup etc.) and are sold by stores in the New Year sales.
My lucky bags are themed by technique (sashiko, kogin etc.), materials and/or a keyword or phrase, such as 'wintertime', 'golden' or 'Japanese New Year' to give you a clue as to the products and colour themes of each bag. These Kofu Tsumugi 'lucky bags' contain five 50 x 55cm fat quarters of these beautiful yarn dyed fabrics worth £20.00, with a 20% discount for each 'bag'.
Kofu Tsumugi is also sold by the half metre and as 35 x 50cm pre cuts. It is the same fabric that's used for my sashiko panels, and is ideal for sashiko and patchwork.
