Bojagi Curtains!!

I officially started my bojagi curtains June 1st after Rocketman had recovered from his surgeries and was back at work. It took FOREVER and tried my patience sorely but it was so worth it. I finished this week, the third week of October and I worked on them constantly. Handstitching is not for the faint of heart or impatient people like myself.
                                 But they are hanging in our bedroom and I love, love, love them!
Photographing them was another story.
This is what I came home from Korea with. I ran low on the light lavender but my bojagi teacher was happy to buy me some more and mailed it to me. Love her!
This is what my kitchen countertop looked like all summer and most of the fall. Rocketman never complained about the mess.
Louie even loved my bojagi. Korean crafts like bojagi continue to kick my impatient behind but I am continuing to learn patience especially when I look at my new curtains. Do you think my countertop is cleaned off? No way, now it is covered with hanji paper. Onward!


  1. Arirang had a video about hanji paper recently. I haven't had the time to watch it yet, so I don't know if it is any good, but here it is:

  2. Could you post more information about how bojagi squares are pieced? I've seen a few tutorials about bojagi, but none from people who have studied it in Korea. A full tutorial might be a bit much for you, but even some pictures and descriptions would be very much appreciated!
