The first furoshiki design is drawn and the cutting has begun!
It took 7 hours to draw this design onto the katagami (waterproof stencil paper used for katazome). I have titled this design jitensha, which means bicycle.
The furoshiki that I have chosen to dye are 54cm square (medium sized) - and this is reflected in the size of the katagami design. The images below are a progress shot of the cutting - it took an hour to cut this small amount...I foresee many hours ahead!
