I found some beautiful Japanese craft books on etsy. It seems like Japanese things (fabric, books etc.) are quite trendy in the craft circle right now. One nice benefit I have is that I can still read Japanese. My parents were so very wonderful to find me some of these books for Christmas gift. So, I've been really enjoying reading them and making some things from them. One of the books has these gorgeous embroidery designs. I remember when I was little, my mom always embroidered flowers on my dresses, backpacks and lunch bags etc.....Now, I do the same. I love getting simple and plain clothes for the girls and embellish them with personal touch! Here is the bumble bee I did. I really like this design. I am thinking of embroidering the bee on some of my zippered pouches instead of those little flowers....what do you think?
