  • How to Fix Torn Jeans Trousers
  • What do you do when your Jean’s knee started to be torn. If you are young, it is absolutely fine to continue wearing it as a fas
    hion style, but if you are getting into the middle age, it no longer work. Then, do you throw them away? Wait a minute! How about,
    stitching some embroidery pattern to fix the tear? I don’t have the photo of trousers before the fix, but it definitely works! [続きを読む]
  • School Uniform Recycle (Up-cycle!) Idea 1 [Frill]
  • Kids grow fast. Faster can you would ever imagine! As a parents or carers, you have to keep buying the bigger uniform or shoes con
    stantly. What a headache! Well done my mum! My daughter’s school organizes second-hand uniform sale 2-3 times a year and it is r

  • Kogin Embroidery Bag
  • Continuing from the previous post, I am going to show you another Kogin work. This is the long time project and completed just rec
    ently. Kogin Embroidery Leather Bag I had been to leather bag making class 4 years ago and learnt a little bit about leather craft

  • Kogin Embroidery in Frame
  • I stitched this Kogin stitch years ago to make something (probably oven mat), but couldn’t work on it for a long time. So, I put it in the frame. This pattern doesn’t seem to have direct English translation. In Japanese, this is called 七宝文 representing the pattern made by a circle which is divided by outer perimeter of other 4 circles. Similar pattern may be seen in patchwork. As Kogin is sti [続きを読む]
  • Cubicle Bag
  • I had been making this patch-worked and embroidered cubicle bag, supposed to be my daughter’s ballet lesson bag. One side has patch-worked hexagon flower, and the other side had cross-stitch embroidery. I admit that I should have used piping hem so the the circle has better curve. (*_*) Purple dot bow was added to the handle. Bow has lining inside. Flower fabric is from Yuwa, Japanese textile b [続きを読む]
  • Fixing Zip
  • Can you see something wrong with the winter jacket below? Yes, some of the zip teeth have fallen off. I bought this for my daughte
    r and within half a year, teeth started to come off. I just let her wear this through the winter, and now, more and more teeth wer
    e missing, making it unwearable. It was so sad that the jacket itself is still very good and we both love the colour! I contacted

  • World Book Day !
  • Hello everyone. As you may know, tomorrow is the World Book Day 2018! I don’t know how this day is celebrated in the other part
    of the world, but in Britain, school children will dress up to be their favorite character of the book. (No Disney princess are al
    lowed, in most cases.) Willy Wonka from “Charlie and the Chocolate Factory,” Matilda from “Matilda,” Alice from “Alice i

  • Kogin Pin Cushion
  • Hi! Today, I am going to introduce you Kogin embroidered pin-cushion. (In case you are new to Kogin, this is Japanese folklore typ
    e of embroidery. -> About Kogin) They are chic and so easy to make! If you have basic materials for cross stitching and some st
    uffing, you just need to have a nice tiny bowl. Egg holder for the breakfast would be nice, too. I bought this wood holder at Flyi

  • This is the last half of the process. Hope you enjoy it! 1. Sew the end of the 25 cm zip at the top of the main quilted fabric, 1
    cm from the edge, zip facing down, and only the centre of the zip (1 ~ 1.5 cm). Directly above the pull-tag. Please take a close
    look at the photo. 2. Then, fold the other end of the zip and make the triangle shape, like the photo, and sew the edge to keep th

Well, let me try! ********Materials******** Quilted f [続きを読む]
  • Self-Stand Pencil Case 1
  • I have been making many pan cases for my family members along the time and this is the latest! Voila! Self Stand Pen Case!!! Have
    you seen this type of standing pencil case? Very cleaver, isn’t it. I’ve got the idea from other bloggers’ sites and tried i
    t myself. It didn’t work out well at the beginning and after some trials changing bits and pieces, I finally come up with the re

  • Kogin’s basic technique
  • In the last’s post, I wrote about the history of Kogin embroidery in Japan. Today, I will note its very very basic technique. Th
    is is the simple and commonly used pattern, “Flower Bundle.” It is a little bit like the cross stitching chart, but different
    in many aspects. In Kogin pattern chart, horizontal lines means weft; vertical lines are warp, and each small square represents th

  • Kogin Embroidery (Japanese Historical Artcraft)
  • Do you know “Kogin” Embroidery? I guess not many people have heard this word before. Maybe, “Sashiko” is more familiar form of embroidery from Japan? Can you imagine beautiful Kimono embroidery, like the one in Renoir’s painting? Hundreds years ago, that form of silk embroidery is limited for only rich people. Ordinary peasants enjoyed “Sashiko” embroidery. Kogin was born from “Sashiko [続きを読む]
