Japanese Fabrics – Hanauta

November 14, 2012

I still have at least 80% of the fabrics I bought on my last trip to Japan, stashed away in my store room, and here I am searching for more to buy. But how can you resist this? I can’t resist cute fabrics! Sometimes I think I buy them more for myself than for my kids. πŸ™‚

Sample projects

I had my mind set on the puhua (the clusters of flowers) but now I want flower rain (with the houses) as well after seeing the bottom left picture (the 3 pouches). I love how it can be split up to look like 3 different fabrics but they were all cut from the same piece! Harenohi will be just gorgeous on a new backpack for the new school year in January. Not that my kids need any new bags. It’s so hard to decide!Β Now I just hope that I will be able to find them, or else I would have to buy them from Rakuten and pay the shipping service just to get them.
