She loved it!


Look what I found at the used bookstore!

It includes some wonderfully retro patterns, colors, and fabrics.


The couple on the right are soooo stylin'!

These remind me of the felt mascots I see in Japanese magazines and books.

I'm making the elephant for a swap partner. Isn't he cute?
