Japanese Carp Kites

By L
We have been studying ancient Japan. We made these traditional Japanese carp kites which are similar to a windsock.

First we marked a double sided fish shape onto fabric with a marker pen. We reinforced the mouth with a strip of thick interfacing.

And then pained it with acrylics.

Once the sides were sewn up we could attach a string to the open mouth.

We'll find a place to hang them where they'll get lots of wind.
