Fabric shopping at Yuzawaya

Yuzawaya in Yokohama
I went to Yuzawaya yesterday to get new fabrics.
Some fabrics were discounted so I didn't get any ones of normal price (* v *).

Cotton for my Tomato
This one is for my Tomato. It costed only 1/3 of the normal price. It's so cute!

Beautiful fabrics
These fabrics are for me. I liked beautiful flower printed fabrics.

The white rose one is from Kokka. They also have different colors of it and I wanted more... To get it in discounted price, I should get 1 meter or more for each so I could get only one.
About yellow and red fabrics, I had to get two meters to get them in the discounted price. I think I'll make clothes for me and Tomato with them (* v *).

Fabrics for my mother
At last, I found these Hawaiian printed fabrics.
They were from Yuwa and also in half price! My mother dances a hula, so I'll make bags for her (* v *).

I was there for two hours and got more than 10m of fabrics.
I'm so happy with them.
I also got some cotton double gauze and cotton knit to make items for Tomato.
Oh, I wanted to tell you what pattern I used for the shirt for Tomato.

I got the pattern from this blog(I'm sorry, it's in Japanese).
The patterns are in two PDF, "hadagi1.pdf" and "hadagi2.pdf".
If you want to use them, print them in 200% of the size.

See you (* v *)!!!!

なつかしい!! I used to live near the Yuzawaya in Kobe and spent too much money there on fabric, buttons, clasps, craft books and so on. I still have fabric in my stash that I bought there, but it is so beautiful I am afraid to cut in to it...!

Glad you could find some fun stuff for yourself and Tomato :)

You hand sewn this or using machine? I wanted to make a blouse for my girl too. But I don't have a sewing machine. So, I am thinking of hand sewn. Is it possible? Will the stitches be secured enough?

In the previous week, I went over a couple daily paper articles tending to the issue about the trouble for Small and Medium Enterprises (SME's) to acquire bank advances that I find strikingly befuddling. usapaydayloanstore.com/chicago

Other than meeting the greater part of the vital criteria, a key component of an application is the motivation behind the advance. This is not an issue when looking for an automobile credit, or home change advance, which are obvious. A $10,000 individual advance for terrible credit administration will probably be given the green light than a $10,000 advance that is just portrayed with respect to individual utilize. check cashing
