If you’ve been following me on Instagram, you might already have noticed. I’ve been sewing to sell lately. Well, since about the end of the last year. I opened my booth at local craft market in December and opened my shop on online craft market just after that.

I started this from some reasons.
1. I have a HUGE pile of fabric which I bought when I was in the US. It seems like impossible for me to use them up by just sewing clothes for my family. I needed to find a good use of these fabrics and I thought I should have sewed something to sell.
2. I’m not working right now and have some free time that I can use to sew.
3. There is a big trend of craft market kind of things here in Japan now. I just wanted to know more about that trend.
I couldn’t get a satisfying result on a local craft market but could sell some things on an online market.

I’m sorry that those online craft market don’t offer the customers from overseas (and who don’t understand Japanese) the opportunities to buy things on their market. There sure are some amazing creations and they sure will attract some people in the world.

BTW. We all recovered from the flu finally and got back to our normal days. So glad. And I’m excited about that next week is Kids Clothes Week and its theme is upcycle this time! I have another HUGE pile of fabric to be upcycled. Ha.
