I absolutely adore Japanese fabric, and I have been itching to make something for a while now. I have used cotton fabric from Japan before, no problem, but this was a linen/cotton blend and for some reason a bit daunting!
I made a simple mobile phone cover with the Animal's School fabric that I purchased from Japan a little while back. I lined it with fleece interfacing and some sew in interfacing, this makes the end result less bulky than using the polyester wadding.
I might try using just the sew in interfacing and cotton wadding as opposed to fleece interfacing on my next case to see the difference.
Wouldn't mind trying to make a pouch with the same fabric see how it comes out.
At the same time I am working on some Christmas wall hangings. I am hand quilting around each character in the wall hanging, there are broken lines already printed on the fabric so I am just following them.
Using seed beads I am picking out certain features on the little wall hanging e.g a star or a crown.
Check out the chicken, how cute is he? I am undecided as to whether to bead his beak? What do you think?
Just before binding the wall hanging, I do some free motion machine quilting on the colourful border. Finally I will be adding a sleeve to the back of each wall hanging.
