- I repurposed another obi. I’ll never forget the day my hubs and i spotted this beautiful obi at a shrine sale in Yokohama. We talked the lady down a little bit in the limited Japanese we knew. She tried to explain the scene to us. A fishing town in Southern Japan, if i remember correctly. I do love it, most likely I’ll make something to adorn our walls with this obi but for now it was perfect for a bag. It’s a gift to a dear friend. Paired with golden cork and golden hardware. #repurposed #repurposedsewing @noodlehead531 #foragebag #noodleheadpatterns #obi #japanese #bags #baglady #imakebags #sewmystash2018

- #chrismasshopping #chrismastree #obi #tannenbaumkaufen #Weihnachten #baum #greattime #2018 Die diesjährige Schlacht um die besten tannenbäume hat begonnen und wir haben es geschafft diesen "perlgrünen Peter" zu ergattern....
Erst wollte uns der wurzelige Wilburt begrünen blieb tapfer mit seinen Nadeln an mir hängen und sprank mir sogar kippend hinter her ( ja er hat ja keine Füsse der arme) jedoch ohne Erfolg. Der "perlgrüne Peter" hatte halt die schönere Ausstrahlung der farbenpracht des grünes.... Somit möge der Sieg mit Ihm sein...

This hand made one of a kind piece features a colorful and theatrical Kabuki performer against a stark solid pale green (almost white) background. The performer is created from hand crafted silk and metallic brocades and textiles. The face, hands, and signed lower right corner are hand embroidered. The frame has three tiers of matting with a shiny and smooth gold / bronze tone metal frame and glass covering the art and matting. The backside is wood with a metal wire for easy hanging on any wall. Kabuki (歌舞伎) is a classical Japanese dance-drama. Kabuki theatre is known for the stylization of its drama and for the elaborate make-up worn by some of its performers. This is a traditional Japanese decorative art form known as oshie (literally,“pressed pictures”) that goes back to the Edo Period (1603-1868). It is said this art
form was born of the reluctance of ladies of the court to discard the magnificent silk kimonos and brocaded obi they had donned for a lifetime. The solution was to recycle these opulent fabrics into stunning works of art.
