(drool....) another Japanese Craft Book: Machine Made Patchworks

Well, the plan was to scan a bunch of images while I was house-sitting, but their internet connection has disconnected! Argh! So much for that idea. So for now I'll show you some images that I had previously uploaded, of this to-die-for craft book I got at the Japanese market. Seriously, I think I was shaking when I finally got it in my hands!
the cover: (ISBN 4-579-11020-X)

Strips bag: (ooh, this would work with neckties!)

More and more I see things like this collage of newsprint made into fabric. Now that one can use their home computer to print on fabric sheets, the possibility of personal fabric design is endless.

This book has more in it than bag designs, but I will post those at a later date.

So lovely!
I am, as we speak, in possession of come Japanese quilt magazines from, like 98/99/2000 and a couple of Marie Claires (in French) that belonged to my grandmother. I should let you look at them before I use them for collages. ;) The quilt magazines are a lot busier than the book you've posted, though.

Ooo, I have such a sassy word verfi: mxixosi

Love that newsprint bag. I'm putting that on my list of things to make. Really like the look of that one.

neat... (I am tempted, but the raging mess in the Stewdio is my reminder - you have too much already!)
