MY JAPANESE CRAFT BOOK!

Photobucket

Hello Sandwiches!

My Japanese craft book is here!!! Thank you so much to my editor, the lovely and amazing Chisa-san, Boco-chan and Tuesday-san! I feel so lucky to have made this book with BNN who have always been one of my favourite Japanese publishers. You can buy it in most Japanese book stores and it will be available internationally in a few months.

HELLO SANDWICH かわいく暮らす、ものづくりのアイデア帖
 

The Hello Sandwich Book is full of 40 craft projects to make your everyday life special and cute. The book is divided into 5 parts: Stationery, Items for your bag, Lifestyle, Gift Wrapping and Photo & Journal. You will find paper craft projects, fabric projects, upcycling projects, a little scrap booking (not in a cheesy way!), a little journalling, and a few 'only in Japan' style craft projects!

The book is only in Japanese language, but there are many 'how to make' photos for each project so you can also enjoy making these projects!  

All of the projects in the book can be made within 10minutes - 1 day.  It’s not a super complicated craft book that requires years of experience, or reading complicated crocheting patterns. Phew! Mini corsages, lined envelopes, and a cute book cover could all be made in no time at all, whereas you might like to pop on a cup of tea, and turn on some Lullatone when making a decoupage coat rack or sewing a reversible tote bag.

  99. Oh wow you're book just NEEDS to be on my shelf! The Japanese version, because even though I don't speak the language (a course is on my wishlist) just looking at it makes me happy. So yes, I'd love to win a signed copy of your book! My own personal favorite craft-project is making little notebooks (handbound actually, bookbinding is such a beautiful craft), and I would love to see your take on that. However, I would also love to see a craft-style wedding, a wedding completely in DIY style. How cool is that? No expensive and non-unique things, massproduced and so not what you like in your daily life, but a wedding completely made by yourself (ok so maybe with the help from some friends) which totally reflects the DIY craft-lover you are/I am. Using lots of maskingtape and beautiful paper. :-)

  129. Congratulations Ebony!

    I cannot wait to get my little fingers on a copy when it is ready to be wrapped up, and sent to the motherland!

    Holidays have just finished here in Aus, and it is back to University. (A real bummer.)
    I would be really neat if you could show some ways to brighten up the semester! Perhaps on how to decorate your pens, books, laptop keyboard, etc. (Maybe on how to do crafty graffiti on your desk - kidding! - but am I?)
    Anything that might keep one jolly in their advertising theory and practice lectures!

    I hope you are incredibly proud of your greatest creation yet, Ebony!:)
    I expect many more inspirational things from you. Keep up the fabulous work.

    I would love to see some craft with clothing. I have really been into making my own clothing lately as you then have clothes that are one of a kind so I would love for some hello sandwich-make yourself ideas either by making the clothing from scratch or adding to plain already made clothing.
