Musubi

Friday we had friends over for dinner who hadn't seen any of my kimono, so I showed them a few. That evening I didn't have time to fold them up again so when I came back from the gym this morning, I decided to do some kitsuke on my 2 dolly's.





A few weeks ago when Rota was over, she showed me a book on musubi she bought on eBay, and I got a copy of that as well.

The musubi I tried today are from that book, but I really have no clue what they are called...

(above are the examples from the book)

I especially like the second musubi, so pretty! *sigh*

Thank you Misuchi! It was a bit difficult not knowing what instructions were written next to the pictures, but it turned out okay ^_~

ROTA said...

very good, looks beautiful. Now i envy you.
Did it took a long time to make those musubi or was it a peace of cake?

Kyuukaryuko said...

Haha, don't envy me, there's no need!
It took a little while because the pictures aren't that big, but in the end it wasn't really that difficult. It's just that all those musubi are, of course, for fukuro, and I only have 4 or 5 of them... Most obi I've got are hanhaba and nagoya.

great buy! I've been meaning to get this guide as well, just wasn't sure, as I already have the Obi Encyclopaedia with just as many knots for nagoya, hanhaba& fukuro obi.
One thing I wanted to add was that some of the fukuro-meant-musubi can also be done with a nagoya. Good luck with practice!

Thank you Ume Bloom!
If you haven't got this guide... If I can find some time soon, I'm going to make pictures of the pages and put them om flickr. Where did you get the Obi Encyclopaedia?

your welcome Kyuukaryuko. I bought mine off Yahoo Japan Auctions, via Crescent Shop - on ebay it was much more expensive(some usd10.00)..
