Japanese Style Pinkeep

Recently I am absorbed in making pinkeeps!
That's because I can see the result soon and to choose the fabrics, or to make original pins are really fun!
I'm a beginner, so, actually what I can make is only Pinkeep at the moment, though! LOL

This time I made "Japanese-style Pinkeep"

I love western style, but also like small things in "Japanese taste".
I made this pinkeep for our Japanese room called "Washitsu" (Can you see the "Tatami" floor in this photo?), the fabric is from "Kimono" cloths.

Acutually a photo above is back side, and this (below) is the face.
I added Yo-Yo (fabrics are also from "Kimono" cloths) and pearl beads as flower motif.

But, it's not so pretty than I expected, LOLI like the back side, it's more Japanese-like!
I made and added Top-Pin on the ribbon again, this time I added bell.
The sound of bell makes my feel very calm, I remember my childhood...

The most favourite part is here!
I found myself to make orginal pins is really fun!
Do I love to make pinkeep or pins?? LOL
