I am a thimble maker but I do Japanese embroidery, too. The most obvious characteristics of Japanese embroidery is using silk floss. Well, the embroidery threads are called floss, but what I mean here is untwisted silk fibers. You twist the fibers as you go, or choose not to twist, depending on what effect you want to create or what stitches you choose.

This camellia is not very big, and I haven't decided what to do with it. I originally planned to make a small fabric covered box but it may end up as a cosmetic bag. We will see...


  1. That looks beautiful Chloe. Would be great for a fabric covered box I am sure.I am not familiar with this kind of Japanese embroidery. I must have a look at google right away. :)))

  2. That is just gorgeous!! You do awesome embroidery!
