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.Frances

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.

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.

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 : firstname.lastname@example.org 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

The obi sash and hair bow were made with scrap fabrics.
I made a kimono for a doll with the Hitokoshi chirimen. As an almost first try, there are some awkward parts, though. I was so happy to find this shop after a very long search for a place selling good fabrics for doll kimono.
I make handmade dog accessories - collars, bandannas, leashes - and this is a picture of some of my fashions. The fabrics are beautiful on dogs, and they are very popular here. More styles can be found on my website www.luvofdog.com.

Since this fabric was my favorite design, I made this wrapped skirt carefully so that I would not make any mistake.
The fabric used is Flower Paradise.
I made two matching purses in Hitokoshi chirimen for friends. The pattern came from Kumiko Sudo's 'Omiyage' book of projects. The fabrics were so lovely I ordered more this time so I would be able to make them again.
