MY HASHI Fabric Chopstick Holder

As today's Creative Wednesday project I am featuring an item I sold at a craft fair 2 weekends ago at the Nikkei Cultural Centre. I had to feature an item that is Japanese related in order to qualify for a table at the annual craft fair. My special piece of my table were cute chopstick holders called MY HASHI. In Japan, it is a recent trend to bring your own chopsticks to restaurants instead of using the disposable bamboo chopsticks.  "Designer MY HASHI" are even endorsed by celebrities in Japan.

The chopsticks are placed at the corner of the fabric holder and rolled up and tied tight with the side ribbon. The holder can even hold a set of fork and knife. It's a perfect gift for the tree huggers out there!  Stop the use of disposable utensils!! BYOU! Bring your own utensils! I hope to see Vancouver to follow this eco-friendly trend soon.
My favourite designs are the Flirtatious and Timeless Portrait Designer Fabric MY HASHI.

Buckingham Elementary School

Festival of Prints Wednesday

I would like to start off with apologizing with my delays in posting my recent Creative Wednesdays. I just started a new full-time job last week and am adjusting to a new schedule of routine in balancing a 7am-3pm job, a crafting business and part-time student life. I didn't get a chance to craft until today after work so thank you for your patience.

A great paper bundle for just $8.50 is the Festival of Prints Designer Series Paper from the Holiday Mini Catalogue. The paper is what I am featuring in my Creative Wednesday project.

The Festival of Prints paper features 24 different patterns and each pack contains 48 sheets in 4-1/2" x 6-1/2". I ran the paper through the Big Shot with the Square Lattice Textured Impressions Embossing Folder Die. I took white baker's twine and rolled it on the top of a Real Red ink pad to dye it red.

Reminder that there are only 6 weeks left until Christmas! Are you ready?!
