Sonyia Rykiel

I love generally everything Sonia Rykiel. So lovely and colourful.... I think I have to look into collecting it. Then I can sit back and look special when I'm crafting!

Things I have been doing

Recently I have been making pot holders as presents for friends. This is one recently completed for my good friend Anthea. They're quite easy to make and this one was fun to embroider. Earlier this year a made another for my friend Anna and currently I have two in the making for other birthdays (belated). So I best get back to work.

The Chiri-Men Craft Museum

I have the loveliest younger brother ever. He just got back form a trip to Japan and bought me the cutest miniture fabric sushi set from the Chiri-Man Craft Museum in Kyoto. It came to me packaged in the best of Japanese packaging - 2 cute bags and stickers galore. Above is a great vege basket.

Eveything is made out of Chirimen silk crape which is woven from two types of silk threads twisted in different directions by turns in the weft. The famous wrinkles emerge after the fabric is washed.
