Here’s my next project from the UFO Lottery – Japan. Sorry again for the blurry picture. I bought some gorgeous indigo coloured prints inspired by Japanese patterns, got some matching beige faux uni and added a narrow strip of rusty red from my stash. I chose a simple pattern often seen in Japanese design, et voilá!
As you can see, I’ve got a little problem with this one. The border strips got wavy after I attached them. I have no idea why as I took great care not to stretch them during sewing and ironing.
So now I’m on a mission to save Japan.
This involved some ‘unsewing’ in which my dear friend Jack (the Ripper) was glad to help. First the blue strips came off, followed by the red ones which leaves me with the naked panel now.
I’ve already pressed the strips again and will now rejoin them, hoping they’ll still fit as they were cut without any extra length.
