'The Original' Boro Stitching Pouch Kit

30.00

Final pouch dimension

7 in x 8 in /// 18 cm x 20 cm

‘The Original’ Boro Pouch kits include everything* you need to make the famous boro pouch I made all those years ago.  It is my most requested class and most requested handmade item for sale. Each kit contains a combination of hand dyed fabric dyed with all natural plant based dyes along with ONE strip of procion dyed fabric (to add color accentuating contrast) for the best color combination I have ever created.  The hand dyed fabric in ‘The Original’ kits are one of a kind, dyed with many dye stuffs I personally collected (black walnut, avocado, onion, etc.) and created on three different continents. Each kit also contains a hand painted fabric back in a golden leaf motif or mono printed leaf motif for the quilted back side of the pouch.

Each kit contains Olympus sashiko thread made in Japan, a Japanese sashiko needle, Japanese stitching cloth and a hand made sashiko thimble I personally made.  (Similar to other sashiko palm thimbles in shape, this thimble is made with higher grade leather that doesn’t have a shiny spray finish and therefore slips less whilst stitching.)

A golden metal YKK zipper in the most gorgeous seafoam color finishes off these pouches to make a truly unique making experience.  A printed instruction booklet filled with pictures and easy to follow instructions will make for a fun and enjoyable slow stitching experience.


Each kit includes:

1 sashiko needle

1 hand quilting needle

4 straight pins

1 sashiko leather thimble

1 bobbin of sewing thread

1 skein of Japanese Olympus sashiko thread

1 metal YKK zipper

1 hand painted fabric rectangle (for quilted back side of pouch)

1 sashiko stitching cloth fabric rectangles (stitching base)

1 cotton batting rectangle for quilted back

Pre-cut hand dyed fabric strips for boro stitching (front side of pouch)

Printed color instruction booklet

*A glue stick is the only item needed to make the pouch that is not included in this kit. Due to it’s width, the cost of including a glue stick tripled the shipping cost and was therefore excluded from each kit. If you would like add a glue stick to your kits, don’t hesitate to contact me for an updated shipping cost.
