package from japan

I recently won a giveaway on Mai’s lovely blog! Mai does all her sewing by hand and I love all the unique little things she makes! She also sells them in her Etsy Shop if you want to have a look.
I’ve never won anything before so I was soo excited and then to get something from Japan! Her package arrived really quickly and have a look at how many wonderful things Mai sent me:

There’s lots of pretty fabric, sashiko thread, handstamped tags, beads, little origami figures, lace and a lovely japanese book with many ideas and patterns for plushies! My favourites are these two, aren’t they adorable?

With so many lovely goodies it’s hard to pick a favourite but I think I’m most in love with these gorgeous soft fabrics and the lace:

I think I will use that lace as a detail for some tops and a dress I have in mind. I still have to think of something special for the pretty fabric though.
To top that, look at how she packaged all of this, who wouldn’t love to find a package like that waiting in the mail:

Isn’t it deliciously exotic looking? She used a japanese road map for wrapping and check out these awesome japanese stamps (seriously, the package is like another gift!):

Thank you so much Mai for being so generous and giving away so many wonderful things! Receiving your package made my day!
