This cotton fabric with dragon icons that I've bought from "fabric tales" some years ago. Now that I have time, I made a yukata for my husband and my cat. My cat used to hate wearing clothings, but he has no resistance with this one.

I send you a picture of me in the blouse I made of Temari design chirimen fabric! All my colleagues were impressed when I came for a Christmas party)))

I thought you would like to see the jacket my sister made for me from the fabric you sold me.  I have worn it once and got lots of compliments.  I just love it - it really looks wonderful.  I am going to wear it again several times and really enjoy it.

I have my eye on another fabric, so I will probably be ordering again!

I wanted to show you the sleeve we made for the Macbook from the fabric we ordered not long ago.

Hi!
I used some Rayon and Polyester Chirimen I bought from Fabric Tales and made

Your chirimen cord was exactly what I needed to make maneki neko- style collars for my two Japanese bobtail cats, Lotus and Peony. You can see from the photo of Lotus that she enjoys wearing hers.

Japanese fabric kitchen curtain
I am unskilled at sewing, but I've encountered no difficulty working with these cotton fabrics. They are a good weight (not too heavy, not too light) and feed nicely through my 1924 Singer treadle machine. I have completed several simple projects and am pleased with the results. I've attached a photo of my kitchen window curtains. They're super cute, don'cha think? ;-)
by Tracy
this is my little asian girl. the little combination is made from Tiny Ume Blossoms on Red.
i love this fabric - it's so supersoft and nice for little girly clothes. easy to sew and easy to wash and iron.

my little one looks so great in this outfit.

Japanese fabric books
Soxbooks are handmade in Melbourne, Australia using only authentic Japanese fabrics and papers. I have been making books for over 5 years, but only since January this year have I been pursuing retail outlets to put them in. They are currently in 14 shops in Australia which I am very excited about! There are three main formats: concertina, soft bound and hard bound. All come in small, medium and large. Anyone interested in ordering one from me directly are welcome to email me at : soxbooks@yahoo.com.au I would be only too happy to make to order and send them on to you. My fabric list is now in excess of 150 different kinds!! Hope to hear from you soon
