Our living room curtains are worn out and we have decided to order new ones. At a curtain shop, there was a wagon-full of curtain fabric remnants. It costs 500 yen for a small plastic-bagful. Curtain fabrics make good bags. I stuffed the fabric as much as I could. I came home smiling. My mother chose one of them and made a shoulder bag with it. I offered to make a belt and made two Karakumi samples. She does not accept them saying “They are too quiet.” Then I made a Sanadahimo, which she liked.
These are the Sanadahimo I have made. I am getting tired of checkerboard patterns, so I made a stripe that I once saw in a magazine. In the magazine, the braid was used as sandal thong for men. I liked the sharpness of the pattern.
