A Crafty Trip to Seoul - Bojagi Coaster



This is my completed project...
a bojagi coaster!
I made it during my two-hour bojagi sewing class at 
the Korean Traditional Craft Centre in Seoul.

This coaster is reversible!
The seams allowances are totally enclosed;
so either side can be displayed.



The fabric that I used is called ramie
which is very common in Korea.

Contrasting thread colour 
is normally used in bojagi sewing.
The stitching is supposed to stand out 
as part of the design.

My two biggest challenges with
bojagi sewing are uniformity and tension.
The stitches must be even and similar in size...
lots of practice is needed!

This is my last posting on this series of
- A Crafty Trip to Seoul!
However, there will be more new projects...
on the way!

Happy Sewing, my friends!
