Buy the Tsuno Tie Bag sewing pattern from Charlotte Kan. Need a fun project for those leftover bits of fabric in your stash? Fabrics you love and can’t bear to part with, but just don’t know what to do with? The Tsuno Tie Bag pattern will get you sewing and destashing in no time. It’s a super quick project perfect for beginners or those that want to jump back into sewing. Use the bag for storage or as gift wrap, a produce bag, a shoe bag, a project bag to store your knitting, or a shoulder bag with a strap.

The Tsuno Tie Bag is based on antique Japanese tsuno bukuro bags and the still commonly used azuma bukuro bags. Tsuno means horn and refers to the pointy handles that can be used to tie the bag.
