Asking For Trouble

Posted on September 7, 2008 by

To start things off, we’re going to tell you a little bit about our own crafty endeavours. I make things under the name of Asking For Trouble and everything I do is inspired by Japan in some way. I guess I’m mostly interested in pattern so I use a lot of Japanese fabrics and washi, as well as my own photography and illustration. As you can see, I also love the cute!

I make all kinds of things, including fabric purses, keyrings, covered notebooks, stationery, gocco prints and felt flower brooches. At least half of the things I make are one of a kind – I like to use vintage buttons, hand-stitching and gocco printing to make things extra-special; there’s nothing like knowing no-one else has one exactly the same. I also use a lot of fabrics, charms and papers I bought in Tokyo.

I have my own website and shop at, and also sell on Etsy and Folksy.

    Your illustration is really cute! I can’t make that many cute characters, I just make the same characters. I like it the most when drawing cats and rabbits, how about you?
