Golmu Bojagi

Golmu means a thimble in Korea.
Women made a hundred golmu before they get married.
Many of them were given as a small gift for groom's family member( obviously for women).
Just thinking of people who will get these, I am working on my 22nd now and will post more pics when I reach the number 100!

옛날 여인네들은 시집갈때 골무 100개를 만들어 갔답니다.
시댁식구들에게 나누어줄 작은 선물로 말이죠.
제가 만든 이 골무들을 누가 가질지는 모르지만 그들을 생각하면서 100개까지 만들어 보지요.
지금 막 22번째 골무를 시작했어요. 100개를 완성하고 다시 돌아올게요!

Moshi vest Bojagi

 This vest still needs a final touch but I am anxious to show this to my friends.....
My first moshi vest with jogakbo pattern.
I used a ssamsol technique which can be translated as a french seam in English.
It took me a whole month to put pieces together and turn it into a vest.
Take a closer look at my hand stitch.... :)

아직 마무리가 덜 되었지만 잠깐 보여드리지요.
조각보 패턴을 사용한 조끼입니다.
프렌치 심이라고 번역할 수 있는 쌈솔기법을 이용한 겁니다.
손바느질을 하느라 거의 한달이 다 걸렸답니다.... :)
