Arigato Yoichi

Hi again!  I think this may be my last post for a little while.  I am trying to do a lot of my stamping and coloring now before my new cutting mats arrive tomorrow for sewing.  I bought larger mats so I could cut my fabrics easier.  Then I plan to make a bunch of coin purses and maybe larger make up bags or something.  When I make a bunch I'll share them here but I don't know how long that will take me since I'm kind of slow with sewing.  Anyway, I'll keep you posted. 

Here are a couple calendars featuring Sister Stamps Yoichi.  I thought I would make calendars for my son's taiko teachers instead of just a thank you card.  Hopefully they'll be able to use them in 6 months!  Haha.  I matted the washi paper in gold so sorry about the reflective glare.

Here is a close up of Yoichi. 

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Oh!! Love these!! The gold is awesome! Love the combination of the washi paper with the reds on Yoichi, and of course love your coloring. They will definitely love these, not only cute, but super functional.
Sad you won't be posting anything soon, but excited to see what you showcase when you come back. Happy sewing, enjoy yourself!!
