Cross Stitch | Totsuka Embroidery


Stories about the work and the creator

Ito, who is now in her 80s, has made embroidery works for her family and herself.

This work is one of them.


There seemed to be the actual pattern of this work of Totsuka embroidery but I have never seen it before.

My teacher and I discussed about color of fabric and floss.

I chose dark beige fabric instead of white one and my favorite colors of floss.

Someone who saw the original work said that the impression of this work was totally different from the original one.

It might be magic of colors!

Lately Ito feels like having more fun and sharing joy of hand crafts with old and new friends.
