SASHIKO 'lucky bag' - 'fruits and berries'
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.) 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. Sashiko 'lucky bags' have at least £20 standard retail value of goods for just £16, so there is a minimum of 20% discount on the value of each 'bag'. Sashiko bags will contain a 'fat quarter' of Azumino fabric (this may be a precut - 45 x 55cm - or cut from the bolt at 50 x 55cm) and medium sashiko threads all colour coordinated on the theme and chosen individually by me.
NB - Sashiko lucky bags do not contain needles, as I know many customers will already have these. Sashiko needles may be bought separately here.
'fruits and berries' - what colours does that bring to mind? Have fun!
