It's Giveaway Day

Wednesday, February 04, 2009

Due to the wonders of international time zones, it's giveaway day here a few hours earlier that anywhere else. For the International Stash-Busting Giveaway I have selected four Japanese Style prints. I bought these a few years ago and really like them. Considering that I haven't had any immediate plans to use them for sometime now, its time to find someone who might.


The selvedges are blank so I can't tell you who designed or printed them. I can't even tell you if they are really Japanese or an American interpretation. The patterns are from left to right -

  • Shibori style rice grain pattern
  • Little wood ducks
  • Faruma dolls
  • Fans with random hiragana
There is about 1 metre of each and I will be giving it away as one bundle. They are 100% cotton and out of habit I have pre-washed them with delicate detergent. Just leave me a comment below and these lovelies might be heading your way. I will be drawing the winner next Monday. If my school girl Japanese serves me correct "Ganbatte Kudasai".
