I went to an exhibit of something very unusual. Those of you who sew can appreciate today’s post!
Touchable Picture Books Made Entirely Out of Cloth!
There are three hundred of these picture books made out of fabric. It takes one year for a Fukushima volunteer to complete one book. The organization has been doing this for thirty years.
They are SO BEAUTIFUL! All made lovingly out of fabric.
The Little Prince
The Sun and the Cloud
Story Aprons. The wearer uses the puppets to tell a story.
The Very Hungry Caterpillar
Eating his way through the pages.
Except for the words, the version at the top is all sewn on!!!!!! Amazing!!!!!!!
The Emperor’s New Clothes
The Pied Piper of Hamelin
The Wolf and the Seven Kids
Little Red Riding Hood
The Three Robbers
A hiragana book. かmakes the “ka” sound which begins the word kame (turtle)
Book of months: 4 gatsu is April (the fourth month…Japanese months are extremely easy!) 4 gatsu is pronounced “Shi Gatsu” because shi means four.
I felt really fortunate to see this exhibit because I love picture books so much. The makers of these books are really proud of them, and they should be! They are wonderful!
