Meshwork - for those who asked

A few people have contacted me about the Meshwork book I
just bought so I have posted the front and back covers on
Webshots so you can see some meshwork and the ISBN

The book also has a wavy version made up as a vest, but from
the pictures (I don't read Japanese) this seems to have been
done by ironing a stabiliser onto two fabrics, cutting them
into wavy strips in opposing directions, and then weaving
them together and stitching to hold.
You can try this with paper strips, and thin ribbons make
nice miniatures. If you are looking for books, there are
some on meshwork on German and French sites, and you can
also search on woven ribbons.

the promised English instructions were not in my book. I am waiting for an email from them. But the pictures should be enough to follow the methods.

Ooh! As I read this, I remembered the small stash of quarter inch ribbon I have - with, of course, the potential to get more.

For those wondering how to do this from a Japanese book (and I haven't found any books in English over the years), the Clover retailer in Australia has a free download with basic instructions in English. It's not much, but does provide some illustrations and instructions to describe the basic concept.

Last evening I was getting on wonderfully with the Italian site (Latin education!) and was almost there on the order form, until I came to a 'field' that was purely initials so I couldn't guess it. Grrrr... >g< I'm going to have another go at the French site today (it is so slow to load that I had to give up last night - late >gClover retailer in Australia has a free download with basic

Try this.
This is the Australian site I got my book from. The download is a small brochure on meshwork that they include with the book - which is all in Japanese.
