more pojagi

I know I just went crazy with pojagi links yesterday but I can’t help it. I found this cool site today.  She makes coasters, pincushions, bags. etc. as well as the larger pieces. A smaller project might actually be doable.

    very nice find and the size seems very do-able for first projects. I love them, they are so elegant-why do I feel like I would spill something on them? I think I feel really messy lately-did I mention sadie is totally potty training? I’m poop handling on a daily basis-maybe that’s why these project scare me 🙂

    Hi! Pojagi’s are beautiful, aren’t they! You mentioned that your friend, Jen, in Japan said that Korean things are very popular there. That is true. Not only there, but also the rest of Asia, U.S. and Europe…. It’s been dubbed as the ‘Korean Wave’ or ‘Hallyu’ in Korean. Korea has many beautiful arts and crafts that are not quite as well known as China and Japan, but it looks like that may very well be changing.

    Do you know what the fabric is? Cotton? Linen? Silk? What is it!? Whatever it is looks really purty! Especially with the light shining through.

    I love those little drawstring pouches! So elegant looking. I’m heading to Korea in August to teach for a year, so maybe I’ll be able to learn how to do this stuff!

    I LOVE the tote bags. Inspires me to try something like that for a tote. Probably not that technique, but just the layout is beautiful and fun.

    If you’re interested, I picked up an art book made by a Korean art student a few years ago. She used pojagi techniques. It really is an exquisite piece of work. I’d be happy to take a few photos to send you. I’d post them on my blog, but I’m running out of space!

    I LOVE this stuff! It’s amazingly cool. I definitely want to take closer looks at the pix of the process. Too bad I don’t speak Japanese, but I do have a friend who maybe able to translate – ooo!

    I am thinking there was an article about this in a Threads magazine in the past few years sometime… I am sure I saw it in some magazine I got out of the library. Lots of photos and projects. I’ll keep a look out for more specific information.

    hello! i’m originally from korea, so i was so excited to see pojagi here!! we have these little pouches like the drawstring pouch (not as exquisite) for children, and we put our new year’s money after we go greeting around the relatives and neighbors… the one shown up there, though i believe is closer to what ladies used to have under their garments for their precious keepsakes… 🙂 lovely lovely lovely!!

    Just letting you know I love reading your blog, and am lurking.. and trying to figure out more about you…
    – what is your favorite fruit?
    – what is your favorite shape? (could be 3d or 2d)
    – who is your style icon?
    – what is the most indespensible item in any self respecting craftster’s kit?
    – are there any colours you particuarly dislike?
    – where were you born?
    ps- I love the pojagi too- it’s beautiful! very inspiring…

    I love your work and bookmarked your blog ages ago.
    Now I have a great book about pojagi. Unfortunatly it is in Japanese. What I really want to know is what fabric do you have to use for “shining through” pieces.

    these are beautiful examples. I would love to see or learn how this is done. Thanks for posting – you have a great blog.
