A New Book - full of surprises

My friend and colleague Diane Sandlin
introduced me to Pojagi last year,
and I want to try my hand at it,
using my eco-printed silks.
It seems to be the perfect combination.

So, I was so very excited when
my new book on Pojagi finally arrived in the mail.
It came all the way from Korea,
and it took several weeks!

(Not sure about you,
but I'm the kind of person who doesn't like to wait....
very impulsive.)

I guess I should have read the fine print description of this publication,
as it's all written in Korean:

I think I can grasp most of the directions from the excellent illustrations,
but if you happen to know a Korean translator,
I'd love to get this book translated into English.

I already own this wonderful book by Chunghie Lee,
but I had hoped to expand my library.

there are also some wonderful magazine issues on Pojagi. i have a couple that i bought on ebay but they are in Japanese. once you know the technique which is available if you do a google search, you can design your own. i have some info on my blog. e-mail me if you want more info.

here's a video showing one method to get you started: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qCVvCjTnuSI
i prefer doing it by hand but either way works. it's basically a french seam.

Great minds think alike! LOL! I put this on my Christmas wish list:
I'm now going to check out Deanna's video.
Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours!

That book looks great. I have many books on pojagi at the library where I work, but I have been trying to get them to order this one too. I'm piecing one at the moment using my eco-dyed silk too. Enjoy the book - hugs
