A couple of months ago I signed up for a Japanese Charm swap. The aim of the game was to buy one metre of Japanese fabric, cut it into 56 charm squares and send it to Sarah. The lovely Sarah would then sort them all out and send us 56 charms, one of each, back. Checking the fabrics that were being posted in the flickr group’s pool made me very excited about receiving my charm pack.
Well, this morning the charms arrived and they are just as colourful, fun and original as I thought they would be. I’ve looked through them all a few times already and I keep finding a new “favourite” every time.
Be prepared to see quite a few projects using these charms. Little Miss Bossy-Boots has already picked a few that I will turn into something for her. A cushion cover maybe or a mini quilt for her wall. We’ll see. first I need to start and finish (!) my bath mat.
