This fabric is one that I have loved for ages and used it to make a clutch bag a while ago. I was loathe to cut it up and use it as I only had a small amount, but when I was in Tokyo in November, I found some more of it at my favourite kimono shop! I was so happy. I love the retro pink, the silky feel and the dramatic painterly print with hints of gold. Now I just have to decide whether to use it or save it!
This is the clutch bag I made with the first kimono piece. It sold at the Selvedge Fair in March '13.
