The next meeting of the Small Japanese Projects group is on 25 September, from 10am-noon, in the CQ room at Cook Community Hub.
The Small Japanese Projects interest group is for members interested in all things Japanese. Each month (or over two months) you will work on a small project, lead by a member of the group.
The meeting begins with a show and tell of what you have made, purchased or done during the previous months. It is always great to hear about your activities.
This month Anne Laffan has very kindly offered to show us how to make three beautiful miniature silk kimono which are hung on a small rod. A lovely way of using up scraps of beautiful silk that you can’t bring yourself to throw away!
- A variety of small pieces of silk or material of a similar weight. You need to cut a patterned piece and a plain piece 4.5″ x 2″ for each jacket and a plain piece 5″ x 1 ⅜” for each collar.
- Sewing notions, thread, scissors, a small ruler and a marker pen.
- Tiny cord. (Anne made hers from thread)
- Length of dowel, twig, chopstick or other rigid material for the rod
The meeting is followed by a drop-in until 4pm. The English Paper Piecing (EPP) group meets as part of the drop-in.
