Free Japanese Sewing Patterns – Yu*yu’s Handmade Diary

January 30, 2012

It’s Monday again! Time for free sewing patterns. Today’s link features a Japanese blog – yu*yu’s Handmade Diary. The blog belongs to a very talented Japanese lady who makes all kinds of stuff, from clothes to bags and even key pouches. She features her products on her blog and sells them at her store (which seems to be closed of at the moment though) but there is still plenty of eye candy on her site.

She has a page on the blog which has a few interesting sewing tutorials/patterns. The first is a nice tote for school going kids. It is more of a tutorial than a pattern because the pattern is a simple rectangle (measurements are given on the tutorial). This seems to be a staple item for Japanese kids to bring to school. The reason this caught my eye was because it was part of a campaign by the Japan Handicraft Instructors’ Association  to request for school bags to be donated to children in the areas affected by the earthquake. This is such an awesome idea!

There is also a key pouch pattern, a face mask, and a small fabric box for holding small items. I think I have that bee fabric on the last picture! The links to the patterns are within the text of the post, I prefer not to link the PDFs directly from here as I think it’s impolite to do so. If you use Chrome or any other browser that can to auto-translation, you will be able to find it. If you need help, just leave a comment and I’ll direct you to the link!

Have a good Monday!
