So I've come to realize that it would not be as
realistic as I expected to have a blogpost where I
have pictures of all fabrics and all zakka items,
given everything that needs to be in
sort of lost in the amount of fabric I brought from
Japan. For two, I am not the most organized
person. And for three, I am simply ready to sew up
something tonight for someone's birthday coming up soon.
For these selfish reasons, I decided to share with you
pictures of Japanese fabric & zakka over the span
of several blogposts. I will be adding some fabrics to
my etsy shop from time to time too in case you are
looking for some Japanese fabric to join your stashes.
The very first picture in this post is some cotton
print fabrics designed by Kumiko Fujita.
A fabric chain store called Yuzawaya had a quite
big selection of her fabrics that aren't very easy
to find in other fabric stores, so I went a bit crazy.
And these umbrella fabrics - could anything be cuter?!!
I am so madly in love with the print that I bought
it in four colorways! Okadaya is another fabric chain
store that has lots of cute fabrics. When I was living
in Tokyo 8 years ago, I used to live SO close to
a large store of Okadaya. Too bad it was until after moving
I never cared to stop by the store once.
More small cut fabrics from Okadaya. I love this
store's small cut fabrics section. Each of these
measures only 35cm x 50cm (13" x 20"). It doesn't
make you feel too guilty to get one of these even
if you have no plan for the fabric :)
The fox and fruits fabric is soooo adorable.
The paris map print and the scallop print are
some of the fabrics I've wanted for a long time.
I'd seen the milk caps fabric online before,
but it was totally prettier in person!
I'm not sure if I can put it in use..
And these are small cut fabrics that I found
at Tokyo Quilt Festival. One thing I learned
about the festival is that you can find lots
of unusual fabric at pretty good prices! For
some reasons I thought I would see only new
fabrics sold at retail prices, but it wasn't true.
Many small cut fabrics that came from everywhere.
The drink fabric on far right is way too cute!
I have listed three different fabrics in my etsy shop
so far. This is from a collection called Cocochi E-style
by Kokka. I really like the soft feel and simple yet
And this large strawberries print was totally irresistible.
Wouldn't it make such a cute curtain or apron or bag or..
pretty much every large project!
This is the fabric I knew I was getting a lot of
at first sight. I had never seen this Lecien linen
+ cotton blend print before. Love this so much.
As usual, let me know you came from here when
you snatch fabric from my store to receive an
extra little piece of fabric :)
Hope you had a great weekend!
Thank you for taking the time to read this :)
