Japanese Fabrics – Lecien Toy Pop and TP collections

August 8, 2013

I can’t remember what I was searching for, but I stumbled upon these two cute collections by Lecien Fabrics. According to the descriptions, these are collaborations with the fabric shop Yuzawaya. Just wanted to show you guys a couple of interesting ones since I’ve not noticed them before. I’m not sure how they are grouped together as a collection though, as there doesn’t seem to be a proper theme across the different fabrics. I’m not even sure if Toy Pop and TP collections actually mean the same thing but I’m just following what was stated in the description. All pictures below from Yuzawaya on Rakuten. Click on the images to view other colors and closeup pictures of the fabric on their website.

This was the one that caught my eye first. I love all polar bear prints because they are just so adorable.  Especially the one standing up and waving his paw! This grey fabric is a great background for hardy bags and pencil cases, can’t really see the dirt on it. 🙂

One of my favorite Sanrio characters is Keroppi the frog. This is not the same frog but it just came to mind when I saw this. Do you know Keroppi? If you do you are probably from the same generation as I am because Sanrio doesn’t even show it on their list of popular characters anymore.

I think this would be perfect for the lining of a bag. I believe in using pretty fabrics for linings. This would be lovely for someone who loves strawberries! I know two little girls who will love this fabric 🙂

Can you spot the hidden pandas?

So simple but so adorable. And I love this color combination.

Something for the boys? I see busses, space shuttles, numbers, cars, fish and monkeys? Pineapples too?

A border print designed for school goods. Check out the chart that breaks down the fabric into the different sections and what you can make with them .Even the handles are part of the print. No wastage of fabric!

My favourite has still got to be the polar bear in grey. Hope I can still find it on my next trip!

      Have you tried using this method outlined in my post here -http://www.japanesesewingbooks.com/2013/04/15/guide-shopping-for-fabrics-on-rakuten/
      It allows you to purchase using global Rakuten (English site). But if the shop doesn’t ship overseas you will need to use a forwarding service.
