My hubby got back from Japan about a month ago and brought me back some really nice fabrics. They were small though. Japan holds an extremely dear place in my heart, so I wanted to use the fabrics in something that would remind be of what they were from. Plus, I've been wanting to try out one of these softies.
I think if I were to do another, I would do it differently but my daughter loves it. She calls it her Japanese Princess. It's not too bad for not being a good sewer and just sorta wingging if from a picture I quickly glanced at.
