Fabrics and Craft Books - All Japanese

Hi, how is your Monday??
I hope fine, I'm really sick since yesterday I have a horrible fever and can't stop sneezing , lol I'm super dizzy and mad because it sucks having this flu-cold with this hot heather X_X I want some ice cram and my throat hurts like hell.

Well passing to more happy stuff lol
I was taking pictures of the new goodies I got in the mail when my battery died so I decided to show you these goodies instead.

Fabrics and Craft Books, Can't have enough of them, My favorites are definitely Japanese

image

I was drooling for this fabric for some time and I finally got me some from Reprodepot
, I think this fabric is perfect for a pin cushion and a needle book, what would you make with these?

image

I got these precious ribbons at Michael's, too mad they only had these left, because they're fun and cute. I have to share these with Scarlett because she's going to make a project with these :)

- Design Collection for Kids - ISBN987-4-529-04204-8

I used to look at this book at ebay and I always thought it was a really beautiful book, but now that I have it, I think is so much more than pretty pictures, it's practical and very inspiring, the instructions are simple and the projects irresistible, can't wait to try all those embroidery with wool felt techniques :)

image


Just look at these :), I have to buy me more linen , I want to make pretty bags ans decorate them with these pretty flowers ^_^

image

And what can I say about these kawaii animals, I think they would look great in linen patches or embroidered in Scarlett's Jacket or on a patchwork linen pillow.

To see more pictures of the book and other goodies just go toMy flickr


Well I need to take a nap, my head hurts :(, see ya and enjoy your day

- Lots of Goodies & Promos -

I finally took some pictures of the snail mail goodies I recently received :), ready for some eye candy?

This is the super kawaii parcel I got from Shiyu :) , we made a private swap of fabrics, kawaii stationery and other goodies, She got me the Q-lia letter sets I wanted for my collection, I haven't showed you the photos yet but it's huge :), She also sent me the cutest Japanese fabric but I'm saving those photos for later :) I have more pictures of these swaps at My Flickr, Thanks a Bunch Shiyu ^_^

Happy 4th of July ^_^

I hope the weather Isn't too hot were you live so you can enjoy a nice BBQ :), this is just a quick post to show you the goodies I mentioned in my previous post.

My hands are sore :(, I was making buttons for some promos I need to ship and my fingers started hurting a lot, I have copper allergy (among other metal allergies)and it sucks because the brooches of the pins are made with this material so I always have to suffer when I make them lol, It's ok because I love making buttons, but this time my hands got all red and it hurt a lot :( don't know why this time was much worse than the others, Anyway

Here are the goodies I got in the mail

:: Shipping Smiles ^_^ ::

Today seems to be cooler than Yesterday and that's great news for me, because I hate sewing when It's hot I always get all sweetie eww, I was sewing late at night and I'm almost done with the motorcycle bag, and let me say it's coming along great, Now I'm sewing the inner pockets and the straps and then star cutting the other bag, they're cute big and heavy and my arms hurt a bit for lifting it. I also made a precious pin cushion for the ::: Bag of Treats :: Swap I'm preparing, photos of that one soon ;).

Anyway here is what I'm sending to the :CRAFT Matchbox Swap: the theme for this month is - Fruity Craft Supplies-, as soon as I read the theme title i knew I had to join in because I love fruits.

image


I love apples and I couldn't pass out the opportunity to decorate the matchbox with juicy colorful apples :), this time I didn't paint the box just cover it with a pattern I printed.

image


Fabrics, ribbon, trims,beads,buttons,embroidery floss, a strawberry pincushion and other embellishments are in this little pack , I hope my partner likes it. I had lots of fun putting all these items together.

image

This is another pack I sent to moofin from flickr, this is just a peak because I added more things to the swap.

Today I'm gonna try and finish the motorcycle bag and another small bag I'm doing for a the Bag of treats swap :), I already cut the pieces form one of my favorite Japanese fabrics :), it's going to look so pretty. Well take Care and Enjoy the weather!
