Putting idea books to use

recently I discover this blog with a great idea for this new year: putting idea books to use. She is right, sometimes we have a lots of books with great ideas but we never use them!

And now that my brain is dried, I decided to put this idea into practice ^_^

I made this little plushies from a japanese book that I bought two years ago and this is the first time I used it ^^u (better now than never, right?)


Made with felt

Zoom in

I had fun making them! *_* .

Have a good weekend ^^

My little stash

This time I wanna show you my stash. It's a little small but I think is decent for make some cute things =p
You see something repetitive?

Yeah! I must confess! I LOVE flowers fabrics ¡_¡ they are just beautiful. But desings of animals and nature are my favorite too (ah, and dots jujuju ^^)

My stash grew this month with some "donations" from my mother and boyfriend. I bought some too.

This is my favorite fabric for now.
I like it so much because the print is very clear =D

Speaking of wich, I like cottons and natural fibers. In my country there's some decent stores where you can buy a great variety of fabrics.I realized that imported cottons are pretty good but we have a few with the same quality but the desings are childish.
One meter of good mexican cotton cost usd$3.5 approx.
Cheap cotton usd$1.5, and
American cotton usd$6.5
This is an example of how much it cost the fabric in my city. I would like to know how much it cost the fabric in your city ^^

ps.Sorry if my english is wrong
