Rounded

i’ve embroidered this wisteria design once before, but last time, it was sewn up into a rectangular clutch.  for this second version, i opted for the rounded style with darts instead.  that gave this one an entirely different feel– it’s always interesting to see how much influence the form has over the embroidery itself.

the finishing touches– the twisted cord, the bi-color tassel– are essentially the same as before.  this time though, even the metal loop for the tassel is twisted… anyone take notice?

wisteria season has long been over, but it’s a classic japanese motif.  i’m thinking it’d make a good complement to a yukata in the summertime…

以前刺繍したことがあるこの藤のデザイン。
その時は四角いクラッチに仕立てました。

今回はダーツ入りの丸みのあるフォルムに。
形を変えると雰囲気もがらっと変わるところが面白い。
縁は前と同じように刺繍糸で作ったツイストコード、そしてアクセントにタッセル。
タッセルの上のリングもツイストされているの、気付いてもらえたかな?

季節はとうに過ぎてしまったけれど、藤はクラシックな和風モチーフ。
春だけに限らず、浴衣とかに合わせても?

    Very pretty! Love the details; the cord, the tassel, the loop, but most of all the embroidery. You do beautiful work. Kudos to you.
