Japanese fabrics to share

etsy4

I've had lots of questions about this particular
print ever since I posted an image of it in one
of my posts. I was so bummed to turn you down by
having to tell you that I could get this only
because I had my mom in Japan who was willing to
help me out with the order; the shop accepts only
one form of payment, a direct payment which is done
when a package is delivered to the recipient in Japan.

I went to look for this print online only to
discover that it is out-of-print by YUWA
Live Life Collection that I couldn't find anywhere else.
So guess what, I decided to buy a whole bunch from the
shop so that I can share this fabric with you guys!
I have listed a set of fat quarters of these two
prints in
my shop, but if you want these prints in
larger increments, please feel free to contact me!

If you can let me know that you came from here
when you snatch the prints from the shop, I will
be happy to enclose a little piece of rare
Japanese cotton print like this one.

If you'd rather give a chance to win a set
of two fat quarters of the first two fabrics,
leave a comment under this post, (two, if you
are either a follower/subscriber to my blog or
have snagged anything from my shop before,
to increase your likelihood of winning ;)
I'll leave this giveaway open until the 20th of this
month and will announce the winner on the 21st ;)

Thank you for stopping by!
Have a great Monday!!
