Japanese Stab-Stitch & Postcard Cover

18 Jul 2011

Els elefants són grans!

The proportions here are slightly inverted as you can see by our little red friend.  Today we learned to use the traditional Japanese stab-stitch; typically, this is done with rice paper, but we had some glossy card-stock lying around and decided to cut the pages individually.

It ended up being a bit difficult to punch the holes with our bodkin, but we managed fairly well, even though by the end, we realised that we´d been a bit cheap with the thread and had to find a clever means by which to finish the stitch and knot the thread.  Thus, you are welcomed by the presence of our companion.

The cover is simply a cropped postcard.  Everything, save the thread, is found.
