Please note: In response to recent discussions regarding cultural appropriation, Papercut Patterns announced on March 19, 2021, that they are in the process of renaming patterns originally named after Japanese cities. You can read their statement here. Sewing Gem supports this positive step. We will be selling through our remaining stock of these patterns under their current names, and will restock with the newly named patterns once they are announced.
Please note: Papercut Patterns has recently updated the product packaging. You may receive your pattern in the former style of packaging, but rest assured that the patterns and instructions are the same.
