Sarah, all the thought you have put into making it definately shows, the first thing I noticed was how well finished it looks! Which is not an easy task, especially if you consider the size... Kudos to you!
Can't wait to see Beas's brush wall hanging, Bea's brush car seat cover and brush bed quilt
You could work with some interfacing next time, I have a sample folder
I could send you, otherwise I would just throw it away anyway...
Btw there's a shop selling Japanese (inspired) fabrics in Hamburg ( www.akiko-japan.de
), iirc they have a wider selection in the store than online.
