Sarashi, bleached cotton

Japanese likes cotton.
Bleached cotton is one of the most popular and the most historical fabric we been loved, I think.

We make many things from bleached cotton, SARASHI, we called.
I am making a small cotton sheets from SARASHI, stitching "SASHIKO" decorative threads.Very adoreble.

I am working! yes, working!!

I made some new scrunchies and a Kimono pouch bag and... after some silence, yes.

I have been busy to re-make my Kimonos.
I got new ones - actully they are not brandnew but second-hands from my grand aunt and from my neighbours...- as I have very big hips, I have to re-make the width of the Kimono as usually.

I left some of them until next winter.
I recently wear Yukata , the most casual Kimono, but it looks slightly too shabby anyhow,, and sometime I give up Kimono.
