A chirimen kiku was sitting in my cupboard for some time
It's red and white, something I haven't done often and I think I'm in love with chirimen so much I'll grab myself some more soon.
It's soft and nice and though I love working with silks from kimono and all, I think this is more of a relaxation
This one's going to be put in my Etsy shop soon, along with other items, but feel free to drop me a note if you'e like to grab it now
While waiting for three other projects to set / dye / dry or till the parts come after easter I've finally got the chance to sit by my chirimen fabrics and make something out of them.
I saw some time ago a lively deisgn of white and red ume on a kusudama maiko piece and thought that maybe it was the right time and textiled to do it.
So, with freshy-arrived tassels on my desk I've decided to just give it a go
