Thumbelina pincushion - set of 3

New in the shop
A little flower on a shell.
It will make your sewing desk lovely!

I wrapped the shell with chirimen(kimono) material.
I made this one last year but customer said "too little"
A little one looks cute, but too small.....Yes, I made three different size of it ;)
You don't need to use this for pincushions.
It's just lovely to sit on everywhere in your house for decoration!

children's day

May 5 is Kodomono-hi (Children's day) a national holiday in Japan.
Families with young boys put up koinobori (carp streamers), in their yard and display dolls called Musha-ningyo, patterned after histrical warriors and heroes, to pray for success in life.
As there is a legend that carp swim up waterfalls and become dragons.
So,parents fly koinobori to pray for their boy's success in life.
Also called Gogatsu-ningyo. A set of armour, helmet and other things the Samurai of old carried during war time are displayed. Parents display this dolls for wishing their boys to glow into strong and poweful men.
Now days we don't have a big space to display Musya-ningyo.
So, many families have just a helmet.
