I claim PurpleOne for Japanese origami paper! This is my second claim this round, none sent, non recieved.
I am 30 and live in Japan (but from the UK). I like pretty much anything cute (miffy, hello kitty, doraemon...) or stylish (40s, 50s retro prints, 'ladylike chic') and have no allergies.
It's a long shot but... foot pedal for a Toyota RA series sewing machine. You know, just in case someone has one lying around
A book on pattern drafting and/or resizing - I have some gorgeous Japanese pattern books but they all need some drastic sizing up!
A wide-brimmed cotton sunhat in a funky fabric
a belt - i lost a little weight and all my trousers are falling down! Sewn, knitted, whatever... go mad
US or UK knitting needle gauge - I can never work out what Japanese sizes to use for patterns from sites like knitty! Thanks ZaftigMomma
A set of 'vehicles' flashcards for my kindergarten ESL students - probably 6 different ones, just the graphics is fine - I can back and laminate them at work.
One (or a set if you're feeling generous) really nice drawing pen, black with a medium-fine point. I draw a lot of flashcards and worksheets but the pens I have are awful - come out thick when I want a thin line and vice-versa, drag the paper if I go over more than once, etc. I'd love a nice professional quality pen!
Any knitting parapernalia
Yarn, accessories and doo-dads Thanks Zaftigmomma!
I can always stash, erm I mean use, more yarn!
Children's books (second-hand is fine) that are light to post (as I live overseas to most of you) and are good for reading aloud to children who don't know much English (repetitive structures, silly sound effects...).
Something inspired by the musicals 'Silk Stockings', 'Easter Parade' or 'High Society'
DIY kit for any craft except knitting
Knee socks - spring is coming and it's time to break out the skirts
Warning - I have pretty chunky calves. Anything in an interesting pattern or colour is good.
