Can you add a pic to the post of what it looks like without needing to watch the video? I can't watch the videos at work but want to see what the obi looks like, lol.

Well, now I have a reason to buy hanhaba obi!

I wonder, does it work with fukuro? Or would it be too bulky?

Such a cute musubi. If you tie it with an obiage over the karihimo then I think it would look nice as well ^_^

okay for the people wanting to try with fukuro: it is possible! it isn't bulky ^^b but you do need an obi that is soft => folds better...

though seriously i am doomed... when i tried to turn it around it fell apart ahaha OTL

@ gikuyu yeah i know i have curves x'D but i call that fat for now x'D lol since really... these kinds of things... you need to be skinny for them to work OTL

Thank you for all the lovely comments :kitti:

As chibistef said it is possible with a fukuro obi, but it bulky and you don't get the two tone effect.

chibistef, it takes a little practice to turn them around because you can't tie it too tight. I find using an obi-ita that is worn rather then inserted in the front of the obi, makes it easier to turn it around.

We have recorded more tutorials but aoi84 is editing them.

If people have a musubi they would like us to record then let us know and we will try our best to figure out how to do them. Our aim is to do tutorial that will help you get dressed on your own hence why I tie them around my front and then turn them around.

Great work ladies! All around awesome. My only suggestion is to combine it into one video instead of a part 1 & 2 (though I say this not knowing anything about video editing).

Thanks for the kind words everyone, it's really appreciated.

Iyolin I thought of combining the two video together after I uploaded them to youtube, when I get a faster internet connection I'll combine the two videos. A 10 minute clip takes me 1 1/2 hours to upload!

Yuki-san This musubi will work with any type of hanhaba obi, as long as its two toned (a different colour on each side) & long enough. You shouldn't have a problem.
