Friday Revision Homework - Stitches 31 - 35

Sorry to be one day late in presenting my homework. My excuse is that 'life got in the way' and just before midnight, I was simply too tired to do the blog post.

---------------

Four of the five Sunday School Stitches used this time have Chinese or Japanese in their names.
That is why my Sunbonnet Sue is on a field trip to Asia, to Japan, to be exact.

Like so many tourists these days she has rented a kimono and is tottering along in her wooden 'geta' sandals, keeping the sun out with her waxed paper umbrella, or is it raining,  and swinging a bamboo basket bag.



First I made the sketch and planned where to use the various stitches.

Then I used a rubber molding mat and a blue fabric crayon to make a subtle pattern on the kimono.
The waxy crayon was easily set with a hot iron, and did not smear anything while I stitched the details.

This is how I used the stitches:

    1. The stitches kind of lent themselves to the kimono and accessories. It was fun to use the crayon and molding mat, too.

  3. That's amazing, Queenie! I had heard about rubbing pads but hadn't a clue what I'd do with them! You are so creative! What a great "Sunbonnet Sue". Excellent idea!

    1. Thanks.
      Using the molding mat and crayons is a bit like brass rubbing in English churches. You can get a very nice monochrome pattern.

  4. Probably walking in a kimono and geta slowed the whole process down. Good thing your creativity could catch up.

    1. I once had a student who came to her lessons by bicycle, in a kimono! I can't imagine peddling or running in this garment!

  5. Beautiful stitches used, just perfect.
    I think I'd break an ankle in those wooden sandals.!

    1. The higher the 'stilts' on the sandals, the wobblier. Then many can't walk, let alone run, in high heels, while others are born with high heels.

    1. I didn't have time to fill in the whole kimono with stitches so used the crayon short cut!
