Kogin embroidered barrette

I wanted to make Kogin embroidered barrette but couldn't design and didn't have ideas to attach on the barrette parts.

But last night I came up with the design and idea, and one hour later, I finished making them.

But I made a mistake on the red one. The embroidery is a little different with the others...

Did you find it?

Too many ideas come to me ...


Almost every day, I make something new.

Because I'd like to sell them on my ETSY shop, I have to take pictures and  make listings. But I prefer making new one to shop preparation.

Now I like designing of Kogin embroidery.
Next idea is already in my head.

I hope You'll like my new ideas!

An easy way to put a pin on felt.

I and my friends give handmade lessons to women and kids.
The preparation is hard , but fun. We three have different ideas, so the discussions cause us brilliant ideas sometimes.
This is one of them. We use the way when we make brooch with rosette or Kogin.

I used to sew a pin on a piece of felt.
With the way , you don't have to use needles.
Today I made an Onigiri brooch.

You only have to cut it twice.

Then put the pin through it.

We use a bonding adhesive or  a grue gun to attach on the back.

With the same way, I put a pin on a Kogin ribbon.

I hope this article helps you.

My daughter and my son

A happy new year!

My daughter is 7 years old now.
She always makes something cute with me.

The yellow one is what she made for me. 
Because Kogin embroidery is easy to begin, she made it in harf an hour.

My son is 2 years old now. He also likes my works.
They both are my treasures!

Panda rosette!

I'm thinking of the combination of ribbons for this panda.

It's not s hard to make the pleated ribbon, but it's difficult to think the combination.

This will be for my son, but I'm going to make more for my ETSY shop.

Rosettes are  very popular in Japan now,  mostly for wedding items, also as brooches or bag charms.

A couple of months ago, I began to give lessons of rosette making with my friends.

It's very fun and I enjoy making them every day. Now I like making ones with denim ribbons.

We'll give lessons for girls two weeks later. Miyu also enjoyed making  one as a sample.                                                              
Rosettes of this picture are what Miyu and her friends made as samples.
