I've recently stumbled upon some great advice and helpful websites that might make crafting in Japanese just a little bit easier:
- First up Kuky from label free has a lovely series on working with Japanese sewing patterns, including posts on where to start, commonly used words, understanding patterns, sewing, cutting and sizing info.
- And also a lovely list of Japanese sewing terms from Moving Hands
Once you've made your lovely Japanese item, upload it to the Japanese crafting pool on flickr or be inspired by others there!
And this help is all for free, so thank you to these sites for helping us on our crafting way!
