Lotus Leaf Bojagi Bojagi

Life gets busy always and if I don't do the things that I love, I will regret at the end of the day. So better get busy and enjoy my life! Recently I got a request from an art lover. She wants me to make lotus place mats and matching napkins. I used Moshi(Korean linen) for this lotus leaf. Moshi is very fun material to work with because of the texture and stiffness but at the same time it's a bit tricky to handle. Korean people say that treat moshi as you treat your baby.

Moshi comes in very narrow width such as 12-13 inches maximum. So when I made this lotus leaf, I had to sew 2 pieces together to get enough width. I used Ssamsol(french seam) to construct this piece. To express the veins, I used pinching technique. Since I have to make 10 more lotus leaves, I will have a chance to take pictures of these techniques.

Moshi Bojagi Bojagi

It's been a while since I write about my bojagi. I didn't stop making them but just being lazy taking pictures and talk about them. Well, one morning I wanted to make something for my diding table. I chose 3 colors of Moshi (Korean linen). I have a round shape dining table and I thought it'll be nice to see straight lines on it.
