A while back a friend asked me if I could make something out of her aunt's obi (sash worn with kimono). She said she didn't care what I made or how long it took. I suggested a bag, but she said no. Anything else was okay. There are three embroidered sections, but the fabric isn't in the best condition. The embroidery is very pretty, but there are discoloration marks throughout the obi.
I've been thinking about it while letting every other project come first, when I finally decided to just do it. I made a wall hanging, a small pillow and three small table runners (one with the smallest of the embroidered sections.)
