I'm finally putting up pictures of my most recent purchase of Japanese craft books. I have 3 or 4 more that I'll post in the next couple of days and then they will all be added to my Japanese Craft Book library at Flickr.
I've already shared some images from this book here. I love the embroidery in this picture; this book is one of my favorites, lots of good stuff.
It looks like the linen fabric in this picture is stamped with a tree stamp which was really exciting to think about. I was able to find an ink pad by VersaCraft (which used to be known as Fabrico) that can be used on fabric and then heat set. I've only been able to find the black ink and used it to make a few labels but more experimenting is in the future. Do a search for VersaCraft ink pads and you'll find lots of online resources.
