Beautiful!  Man, I've been away from craftster for ages... I'm glad I checked back because I love your stuff!  I'd look weird in kimono, being a curly redhead, but the picture of the one koshi himo with jeans looks awesome.  Smiley

skeletongirl - That is as good a reason as any to love Japanese-style fabric! =D  Thank-you for your compliment.  A lot of people like wearing these as belts.

poppysmum - Thank you!  How tall are you?  I'm 165cm and I get away with wearing kimono.  I know two girls that are over 175cm and they wear kimono very nicely.  The trick is to look for kimono that is no shorter than 10cm off your hight (so for me - I have to try and get kimono that are at LEAST 155cm long at the shortest). Anyhow - a koshi-himo collection is sure to take up less room than an obi collection!

killthecliche - Thank you!  hmm...I adore dressing in kimono.  I just wish I had more of a chance to.

belleaurora - Aw - thank you so much!  I have listed the koshi himo on my site now - they seem to have been pretty popular so far Smiley   I get my fabrics mostly from Japan through a friend - but occationally I purchase fabrics from ebay also.

chic - Thank you for your kind words!

jeepers - Thank you!  I was without power for 3 days earlier this year from a mere tropical storm!  So 11 days wasn't too surprising - but it was terribly inconvenient.  You get really, really, REALLY bored of playing board games after a while Tongue

thingwraith - Thank-you so much!  I did tie my obi by myself - but I have had to study my book diagrams for a while before I got the hang of it.  Now, I can tie a few different bows with my hanhaba obi - I'm still learning how to do the otaiko bow properly though.

theroguebando - Thank you!  Yup - I got wilma too unfortunately. I hope you were not without power for too long?

BlackMarketBaby - Thank you so much! Smiley

MisfitRed - Wow - thank you!  It is good to see you back Smiley  I don't think you'd look weird in kimono with curly red hair Smiley  I think the trick is just learning to find what colour suits your complextion and a good hair do and most people can look good in kimono Smiley

JemaJemaJema - Thank you!  I'm not sure if I can explain in words how to tie that bow.  I was going to take photo diagrams and put it on my website eventually - so I'll try to remember to let you know when I do that Smiley

kreenzart - Aw - wow!  Thank you Smiley  You are way to flattering to me Smiley  I am glad you enjoy my crafts though.

bluesheep Thank-you so much!  I've actually listed the koshi-himo on my website now Smiley  I get my fabrics directly from Japan through a friend Smiley

I'm 168cm. Height's not so much of a problem, since having Poppy though I'm a little bigger around the bust & bum which tends to make everything gape a bit. I'm not complaining though as I get to see beautiful women in kimono nearly everyday. Grin

And collection wise, it's just one more thing... Wink
