This embroidery method is called Kogin, an old traditional folk needlework from the north of Japan. One of the features is making stitches in parallel, so they build up like a raster display.
I used special Japanese Kogin fabrics & thick threads. Most of them, I hand-dyed to the colours I wanted.
It took really long time to make this video, but I really like the result!
This song is from the fantastic new They Might Be Giants' album, I Like Fun. Enjoy! :)
