団扇 - uchiwa

I'm currently obsessed with traditional Japanese fans known as "uchiwa", especially the ones featuring Morning Glories. These modest, lovely flowers blossom in summer and that's why they are so often featured on the fans. I guess I love uchiwa because after spending two summers in Japan I'm reminded of all the wonderful sights and activities one can have there when I see them.

Actually I love these uchiwa so much I would like to carry one with me all the time. But they're quite big so instead of having a real one I tried to make one I could bring everywhere.

I used "magic plastic" (? that's what we call it here, it shrinks and thickens when baked) and copied the print from the first fan featured above. I love it :)
