Hi There!  I thought I would post some of my other projects, aside from the hairpins I posted previously.

Most of these are made from traditional Japanese patterns except the bags and coinpurse, I free-formed those myself.  For most of the part, all the pouches and coinpurses are made of silk with cotton lining.  Two of the bags are made with black corderoy and silk, with cotton lining.  A lot of these required hand sewing, which was a pain in the buttocks...but I think the end result was worth it :]

Please excuse the poor quality of my photographs.  I need to remember to stop taking photos in the middle of the night with bad lighting.  eep!

These are lovely, just like your hair pins. I especially like the butterfly and bird (I love animals). I'm sure it would be really hard to post a tutorial for something so intricate, but are there any books you could recommend, on this specifically, or on Japanese crafts in general?

 I'm an Art major, and a Japanese language minor, and I really should make more connections between the two...

Sarah, the Omiyage book really rocks!  You'll love it, I promise.  Really good directions, and the patterns are right there in the book, you just need to trace them or zerox.  I made the little fish bag (no scanner or digi-cam, sorry!) the other night, but when I zeroxed off the pattern I enlarged it too.  It's an excellent way to use up little bitty scraps of cool fabric- alot of the projects you only need maybe a 6-inch square!

Thanks everyone for your lovely words!  I am so glad you liked them!

Becky hit the nail on the head - The three pouches are made from patterns from the book Omiyage by Kumiko Sudo (the rest of them are all free-form patterns I did).  She has many interesting books out about quilting also - quilting with a Japanese flair, that is.  I very strongly recommend her book to everyone!  You don't even need to use Japanese silks to make these from - you can use any fabric you like :]  That is the beauty of it.  Also - I found her books along with the photos taught me to try all different sorts of non-traditional colour combinations (well, traditional for Japanese - but non-traditional for Westerners!).  Very inspiring.  I have a couple of other books like Omiyage - but, they are all written in Japanese and it takes a bit of working out on how to do things.

I am not sure what the copyright policies are on this forum in relation to giving tutorials and instructions of patterns from books currently in print - so I don't know if giving a tutorial about the butterfly or bird would be okay?

I could probably do a tutorial on the daffodil pouch though - just a step by step photographic tutorial ... as the pattern is a very basic, common pattern.

I will say though, Omiyage, and quite a few of Kumiko Sudo's books are easily available from your local library..so you could always borrow them to check it out.  I also think purchasing the book is well worth the investment on more levels than one :]  When ever I am stuck for inspriation - I ALWAYS sit down and look through Omiyage, even if I don't make anything from it :]

pucchi- I am not sure about the copyright issue either, since her book has an entire class outline in the back, like she apparantly thinks it's okay for you to teach a class using her patterns, even though the book has the standard copyright stuff in front.  I haven't ever seen anyone do that in a book before.

I was gonna say, the daffodil or the chrysanthemum- even the marble bag- are such basic shapes, I mean, that chrysanthemum is just two squares of fabric!  And the daffodil!  I dunno.

So far I have made the Goldfish and the Raindrop.  I did the Goldfish out of a lightweight cotton that looks like denim, with the lining and fins made out of a red bandanna-looking print.  Definately not Japanese looking, but it turned out really cool!  The Raindrop I did out of a light blue cotton with little flowers on it, with a fabric flower accent.  They turn out just fine in quilt-weight cotton.

the fabric is just 100% cottons. my fabric obsession started with quilting (i'm a weird young quilter only 23) so i have millions of different patterns and colours all cottons. this book is a fun new way to use them cause after making two quilts for christmas i'm a little quilted out. i posted one of the gift quilts and the other one which was my first ever made here http://www.craftster.org/yabbse/index.php?board=4;action=display;threadid=5011&start=0

i love the book i read it over like 4 times in the car today cause the daffodil pouch didn't last even half the car ride it was too quick to make.

i want to make the fish too but can't decide on the colours.

i'm starting to think of new shapes for pouches using the same hem with drawstring idea at the top of the bag.

"just" 100% cottons?  I think they are more than "just"! :]

I tend to stick mainly with just silk and silk blends and Japanese cottons (from summer kimonos).  But...I am sorely tempted to look at quilting cottons now, much to my husband's dismay.  I already have boxes upon boxes of fabric - I don't think I need more!

I am eager to see what else you come up with!  Also - being a quilter - you may wish to look into the author's other books - she has a bunch of books about quilting - but, using japanese elements.  It has tempted me to seriously consider quilting sometime soon!

ok well maybe not "just" i do love the really pretty ones. i got some scraps today at this fun fabric store that has 6 pieces for a dollar i found a nice asian lanscape one with people that would be perfect for something in omiyage

i just checked out the others on amazon and really like fabled flowers...i'll check the library before i buy this one can't go overboard alll in one week Smiley  omiyage is too fun and the quilting ones would help with combining the two mediums.

you should try quilting. you could start by making wallhangings which are so much more rewarding because they finish much faster Tongue and your silks would be really nice for a wallhanging. (they sound lame cause when i think wallhanging i'm thinking ugly granny thing but i've seen some really pretty modern ones)

if i can get a hold of the fabled flowers book i'm going to make a wallhanging i love all the dimensional applique.

ps: i'm starting the bird now. just cut out the paper pattern

k so the bird is still under construction. i just don't like the way the head looks...so i'm leaving it for a day or two, gotta modify the pattern somehow. anways so in the meantime(tonight) i made another daffodil. its a gift for a lady on one of my msn groups who sent me a nice quilting book in the mail. i hope she likes it



enjoy.

it's amazing how much crafting you can get done when you are supposed to be doing homework Tongue.  and the pouches are too fun. the bird is almost done. i had to take off the hem part and just need to re-attach it.
yeah i've been busy. i've gotta prioritize though too and get my website going as well as make specific things for selling. i always get caught up on stuff that is fun but not highly productive.

I'm a huge fan of the fabrics you are using for your projects - were do you find them? Is there a place were you can order japanese cottons online? And were do I find summer kimono that are not fit for wearing anymore?

Keep up the good work - your stuff is so up my alley!

SarahFroggy - When am I gonna see this birdy, eh? ;P

Sarah Dixon - Thank you! I've not come across any websites with instructions for pouches similar to this...at least, not yet - but trust me - I am always searching!  Perhaps, you can borrow the book from your local library?  Most libraries I know of, carry it.  If not - it is worth the money, just for inspiration whilst looking through it :]

Juliet -  Excellent!  Be sure to show them off!

berlin101 - I'd completely agree with the Omiyage=fantastic comment!  I get most of my fabric from a friend who trades in Japanese antiques - so she always attends shrine sales in Japan.  I also get some of it from online auctions and the like.  I'm not to sure where you can find summer kimono not fit for wearing though - as most yukata I've seen are in good wearing condition...online auctions are the only places I can really think of right now.

Cheesedip - Aw, thanks!  And yes, I think you may just have to invest in that book ;P

Wow.  I've never heard of E.J. Stern before - I just did a search.  Her bags are very nice...but there is something about them that makes me think she just glued pre-made flowers onto a bag, rather than making them from scratch?  It is still a cool idea though. :]

I'd like to thank you guys for the idea lol. I was looking around everywhere for something I could make to put this pretty stone in that I got for my friends b-day.
                                      It was kinda small, so I looked at the pictures of the beautiful daffodil pouches you guys made and I altered the design a little bit. Instead of making a flower shape I made it into a little flower bud and put the stone in.  Grin I used blue silk with an asian design on it for the outter part and a light blue cotton on the inside, dark blue ribbon with glass beads on the end for the drawstring . I don't have a web cam so I don't have a pic, but my friend loved it and so did I! Thanks alot!
