Special Fukubukuro 2020

(Umm... I will make it so special - package)

The "Special One" will be a combination of Keiko's Bag and Azu's bag, plus other surprising items that I can think of.

What I am thinking as of now (12/31) to include this special bag is...

  • Vintage Fabric - A lot of vintage fabrics.
  • Fabric with some pattern pre-printed already.
  • Some Sashiko items & Artworks we had made
  • Sashiko stitched Fabric as a sample to your Sashiko stitching journey
  • Some very exclusive Sashiko thread we have made - completely one of a kind

and so on... and then, contents from Azu's Bag & Keiko's Bag.

This Fukubukuro will be more like a Lucky "Box"

As the other bags, the items (contents) will be selected randomly. Please check the list above of the possible items you may expect to receive (Please understand that it will NOT contain everything I mention here. I will choose items from this list).

Please contact me if you have specific request, or leave the comment at the check out. I will make sure to meet your expectation and exceed the item's value. My goal is to encourage people to start & continue enjoying Sashiko.

This bag is designed to be delivered in the USA. If you reside outside of the USA, please choose the "International" option to proceed without delay.
