my flickr pool.) It has pretty rose pattern.
Beads work gives a three-dimensional effect.
You have seen this ribbon embroidery? Yes. I changed this tote I made before into a frame purse.
The lining is cotton fabric which has a Japanese traditional pattern "Sei-Gai-Ha". It means "Blue Ocean Waves". There are pockets for a cellphone and pens.
This one below is a pochette. The embroidery is a combination of Mirror work and Beads work. I represented fireworks in the Summer night sky. This was also made for the book I mentioned.
I am so glad I've conserved them in good condition. Eventually I got a chance to show them in public now. I have never thought these bags I made for my books would be shown in the gallery in America when I made them. I have never expected living in the foreign country myself. That makes me think that Life is so thrilling that it is more fun.
I hope people will be interested in Japanese textiles like Kimono and Sashiko through my work.
There are more pictures in my Flickr pool of these bags.
