    This is a kimono that I enlarged from a small tree ornament to make into a gift for some of my family. It is make of oriental material and is lined with a complimentary material. Hope you like them.

    The shadowboxes are 8.5 x 11 inches so the kimono's are about 9.5 - 10 inches each. They were pretty easy to make.

    I found how to make origami Kimoo here, but your Kimono is more like the real one. Beautiful!!

    The coins are Chinese (that's what the package said). I found them in a little shop that sells all sorts of stones, jewellry, organic clothing and makeup, books, candles etc called the Hobbit Hut. The card they were attached to said the symbols meant, prosperity, long life and family. I thought that was perfect with the idea I was wanting to give. Each kimono is held closed with a beautiful filigree button.

    I never thought of trying to sell them. Hmmm, maybe make a few between quilts and see how it goes at a craft sale this fall.

    Thanks everyone for your wonderful comments.
