I don't really like sewing, but when I find beautiful fabrics, OK, I will try it.
I found this deep colored veges at Crate&Barrel It was a kitchen towel. I made purple strings out of other towel and attached them to it. It's made in India. I always love fabrics from INDIA!
My mom had this wonderful striped fabric from NUNO and she made a tote bag and place mats. I got the rest of it and made coasters. NUNO shop used to be in Osaka long time ago and my mom made couple of lovely skirts for us.
