"What I really want to create often can be found while I am working."
Ito (b. 1932)
Classical Tulip Tote Bag,2017
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.
The design was the antique pattern and printed in black and white so that I chose floss colors.
After I finished embroidery, I made it the tote bag following the size of embroidery.
However it was a little bit deeper for the tote bag so that I changed its size.
That is why the bottom of the tote bag was embroidered.
Lately Ito feels like having more fun and sharing joy of hand crafts with old and new friends.
