Your work is amassing !! I like to learn about different crafts from all around the world, It gives me a lot of inspiration.  But getting to know (virtually still counts Smiley ) that dose actually do those gorgeous things is priceless. Thank you fore that.
I think it is sad that in so many places young people don"t wont to learn traditional crafts, I'm glad that you still do it.

Do you know any   on-line resources about traditional craft works of your region. I would really like to learn more.

I'm so happy that you like my pouches Smiley It is so nice to read your comments I'm very grateful fore them Smiley

Marleah, Jenna rose, Doomcandy : the red one is my favorite to I'm sucker for red Smiley
krafty_kelly; You can by book at http://www.amazon.com/Omiyage-Handmade-Fabric-Japanese-Tradition/dp/0809229099 but I got if as a present so I'm not sure if this is a best place.
aliciasjoy: To make those you don't need a lot of sewing skills you just have to be VERY patient (and that is hardest part fore me). At the beginning I planed to use sewing machine but I realised quickly that hand work is the best. Sawing machine is to fast and in my hands not accurate.
And yes I embellished the center with beads so it will look more elegant.

This is doll I made fore my friends birthday. It took me 5 h to make (with is weary fast in my standarts) and I gave it away when paint was still wet Wink

It is made from velour and different scraps of fabrics I have accumulated in my room. Face and boots are painted with acrylics paints.

I's been long time since I posted. I don't know how it happened because I still visit crafster every day and I do a lot of crafty things Smiley

Those are 3  pouches from book Omiyage by Kumiko Sudo.
I made  modifications to original projects as I went along, so they don't look like in the book, I would not be myself If followed all the instructions.
I hope you will like them:

TheCrochetPirate I cant help you with starting chain one I make are usually of  Grin so I make extra long "tail" (in the beginning) so I can add more chains if I need.
Now more complicated part of your question. I don't know how to explain it but lets try this:
Row 8 (last one shown) is identical with row 5 (counting from the bottom) so
8=5, 9=6, 10=7, 11=5 and so one. If this will not help you I will try come up with something better.

bracelet shown on the picture number 2 is shown in this post https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=49062.0. Link fore the pattern doesn't work unfortunately I have to look for copy somewhere in my files, but I have feeling that that is not how you imagine that bracelet from picture 2

I'm overwhelmed by this responce. I had problems with my PC and I could not post.
First of all Thank you all fore your complements I'm glad you liked it. Also It was very good to hear your opinion about color and fringe  final decisions is hard fore me  Cheesy. I checked how it looks like with clothes I have and decided that just as many of you said there was no point to keep something I would not use after putting so much work in to it so I gave it to my friend. She has a lot of clothes that match the scarf and was weary happy to get it.

I always wonted that Knitty scarf. I even tried macking one but it was my first knitted project so I didn't get weary fare. (It is not good fore beginners but I plan practicing knitting.) I was weary happy to find crochet alternative fore Knitty pattern.

My yarn was 75% cotton 25% polyamid 50g= 205m
19  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / never say never on: July 07, 2006 07:43:20 AM

This scarf is made from cotton yarn that somebody (to whom I'm gratefully) have given me. I used 4 balls 50g each (and still have 4 more), color of the yarn is not one of my favorites so I was sure that I will NEVER find use fore it. bag with 8 balls of yarn stayed fore 5 years in my closet till I signed up fore "use what you have" group on flickr and found lovely crochet  pattern that is combination of double crochet and chain. i wasn't allowed to by new yarn so I used the one I already had. It is great feeling to use something that was hidden fore so long.
 After first 60 rows of the scarf I was sure that I will NEVER finish. I stopped working on it, 2 days a go I found it and decided not to waist time I have already spend macking it and now I'm pretty proud of my self.  I wonder if I should add a fringe and/ore dye it a stronger colour. What do you guys think?

Close up of pattern:
