I have just finished my first backpack made of tatami-heri😁 I got inspired by the Japanese school bags called "randoseru" (check out @japanse_ransels ). Tatami-heri is so easy to sew and you can create wonderful things with them! You'll find different patterns and colors of tatami-heri on my website. Hope you like the bag😊 Want to see more beautiful bags? @tatamiheri_kayoko is really talented, you should check her page 👍

Isn't Ria looking radiant with her hand made tatami-heri tote bag😍? She brought her beautiful sewing machine from 1948 (I tried it and I loved it💕)! She chose the colors of the tatami-heri and started to sew. She loved the texture of the heri and she was eager to show off her creation! The bag is big but super light and resistant. It was great seeing you enjoying this new craft Ria😊

I wanted to make a small apron inspired by the traditional Japanese apron called "maekake" for some time. And here I am😄 Because I want my apron to have a vintage look, I have choosen one of Olympus-thread's takumi fabrics, the panel #2010-1. I love boro inspired stitching so I've cut some pieces of fabric, placed them like I wanted (with a big symbol in the middle) and I am about to start the stitching! I'm really excited by this new project 😊 If you want to see the result...keep following the Japanese Craft Center 😉

Happy sunny Sunday😊
I fell in love with this new @olympusthread 's sashiko thread (pink #110) so I decided to use it on the sampler #1033 (sakura no hana: cherry blossom flowers). This technique is called hitomezashi. First you make all the horizontal lines,  then the vertical ones and finally the diagonal lines. Only then you'll see the pattern emerging💕

I am having fun using different colors of thread for this amazing cotton tsumugi (or pongee) panel made by #olympusthread and #susanbriscoe. I choose the colors depending on the patterns: brown for the mountains, blue for the sea, green for the hemp leaves and so on.... You'll find the panels in red or blue and the complete collection of sashiko threads on my website😉
