Lotus roots, "RENKON" in Japanese, is popular Japanese motif. We have boiled Lotus Roots in Osechi (A New Year Dish, a kind of ceremonial dishes). Lotus Roots have a hole through long roots. You might be able to look through the other side, maybe future?That is why Japanese loves lotus roots as lucky symbol. I feel Japanese is such a big optimist. They always look for "lucky" in somethings (maybe in everything!)
I drew Renkon Lotus Roots by freehand and
stitch them on blight pink cotton fabric.
However, I feel this fabric is easy to be discolour by washing, so I will wash once or twice before sewing.
