Good news too is having a Japanese book store, Hakubundo, in Hawaii. The store is in town, a bit away from where we live, any closer and my hubby may tie me to my sewing machine table !
My latest project was out of the latest addition to my collection ~
I fell in love with these bow pouches in the book ~
I decided to make a bow pouch using a Hello Kitty fabric because Hello Kitty is all about the bows!
My pouch doesn't look like the picture in the book...hmmm, I think something was lost in the translation! I will have to try this pouch again but hopefully I can think of a way to make it my own.
Speaking of making it my own, here's a small project inspired by another craft book.
There was an ad with a picture of these cute little bags ~
Using scrap fabrics I made this version of a mini handbag pincushion. The style and size were dictated by the size of the scrap fabrics.
happy day ~
