embroidery from Japan
traditional Chinese embroidery
I am quite excited about creating these three Story Dolls- they will each have a story depicting the carefully chosen lore of one Chinese symbol...Goldfish, Lotus, and Tiger. The story will partly unfold through the vest and mostly through each specially designed hat (see blog 4-24 for more info on Chinese Children's Hats)...
Vest drawn out and embroidered
Fabric printed in Chinese and English of the lore
Next week- the completed dolls
Keep your fingers crossed for me! Time is of the essence!...
