Pearls in a hemp leaf pattern on soft denim blue, created by the application of dots of oil paint straight from the tube, and then manipulated. The 2nd thumbnail above shows a close up of my test print at a smaller scale (about two thirds of the current size).

Apparently in the old days in Japan there were master artisans who specialized in painting this design on fabric, which is probably why I wanted to try the same thing: it is very much harder than it looks.

Asanoha mon (The Hemp Leaf Pattern)
The mon of the Maru-ni-Asanoha family represents a stylized hemp leaf pattern. According to some, the plant symbolizes the power of growth (hemp being one of the most vigorous annual plants) and probably for this reason, the pattern is often used on babies' kimonos.

rhondadesigns says: The pearly button look of this starry leaf pattern adds a gleaming touch to the design! I can see a fancy light weight jacket being made from this print. Just perfect to wear for casual al fresco summer dining!

su_g says: Thanks so much for all your great comments Shirley, Sue Ellen, Cal and Tina! Shirley I had to work out a different method becuase what you describe is just impossible - for me at least - I guess that's why, when it's done by hand in Japan, it's done by a master artisan. Does make a great pattern though!

fireflower says: What a lovely interpretation of this classic pattern! It looks like embroidery ... perhaps a line of French knots, or whatever the equivalent is called in the Sashiko tradition.

koalalady says: Masterful- I cannot begin to imagine how difficult it would be to get the squeezed dots to look the same-and evenly spaced. Patience that I do not have. Unique.Well done Su!
