The first in a series of LOOK WHAT I BOUGHT posts. Due to my new self-employed status, I sadly have a lot less money to spend on fun stuff but luckily I also sell things made of Japanese fabric so I get to splurge now and again. Above is my latest fabric purchase from Superbuzzy in the USA, which arrived this week – isn’t it adorable? It’s called At The Park and comes in pink and yellow. I totally fell in love with it and had to buy. I even spent way too long figuring out the exchange rate to see how much I could buy without falling foul of the dreaded customs charges. I managed to get two whole yards and I hope to do something extra special with it. Wait and see!
Superbuzzy specialises in Japanese fabric plus notions, craft books and general happy kawaii stuff. They’re fast to ship and prices are pretty reasonable, no more so than buying from Japan-based sellers anyway. Below is a little gallery of cute things in their shop just now that I might have been tempted by if I wasn’t already up to my customs limit. The brooches on the bottom left are so lovely!
