Sarubobo pen case and card holder

Sarubobo pen case & card holder
I made new versions of Sarubobo, on pouches.

The one is the pen case.
I attached a sarubobo on the edge.
I made the sarubobo with the same fabric as the inside.

Now I'm working on writing the how to make this pen case.
Please wait for a while.

The second one is the card holder.
It closes with a sarubobo. I put snap on the hand.

For the outside fabric, I used Japanese printed cotton which my mother gave me.
I like this flower print one very much.

Hello Mai,

I have recently found your blog, and I am so in love with your designs! You are so very talented! I wish I could have met you when you came to the United States. I would have bought you some more cotton to make more lovely things. I have subscribed to your blog feed so I don't miss any of your designs. Do you ship to the USA from your etsy shop? Do you have another job besides etsy, or do your designs keep you so busy that you don't have time for other jobs? 8-) Your Sarubobo are so cute, and friendly-looking. I haven't tried making any, but I hope to soon.

Your friend and admirer in California,
Linda 8-)

I recently found your blog, read every single one from the beginning. I really like your style and ideas, you are so creative. I wish I could meet you if you ever come to Hawaii. I might go to Japan in fall 2010, I want to look for Zakka books and fabric and other cute Japanese things. I am Japanese too but born/raised in Hawaii (Sansei), I miss all the cute little toys from when I was little.

These are beautiful. You are very clever. I love how the snap is on the sarubobo's hand on the card holder. Too cute!!!
