May 5th is a national holiday in Japan, Kodomo-no-Hi, Children's Day. I wrote about it here.
In that blog entry I forgot to add the flying carp streamers I stitched last year for the TAST stitch #16, Wheat Ear.
As I wanted to make a new decoration for this year I dug out some fabric origami. This type of weaving is called Iyo kasuri and is from the island of Shikoku. Each piece is appr 10 cm square with a stabiliser on the back.
I followed this pattern and folded and ironed a small Samurai helmet.
