Cotton Friend's French style projects



On my desk is a Cotton Friend Japanese sewing magazine. Lots of zakka inspiration to add to my surroundings.






I enjoyed a slow Tuesday evening making these French inspired projects out of the free craft materials included in the summer 2007 edition of Cotton Friend, a Japanese sewing magazine. I pieced together the magazine's free antique embroidery box and I also fashioned a pair of printable linen pincushions adorned with lovely old world images from The Graphics Fairy. Aren't these pincushions sew romantic?

Have a wonderful week filled with surprises and good times!

  1. At first I misread and thought it said Japanese sewing machine. This was great stuff to get free with the magazine and I like what you made thats such a cute picture on the pin cushion.

  2. I love these pictures and projects and the color palette.

    Creamy yellow, white, red. So soothing. Maybe I will go in that direction. Ever since I discovered yellow, it's like another world has opened up.

    And those pincushion and embroidery boxes are to be worshipped.
