Far away fabric

So it finally arrived, the order from over seas. Here are some photos of the fabric. I couldn't resist making another border, can you tell what the right and left sides are?

Those 2 at the right side is called "Ado-chan", and so cute!!
It was really popular back in 1970s and they came back again like a few years ago.
I couldn't tell the borders...

Oh thank you for that information, I didn't know that, but when I look at them, I do get that nostalgic feeling! I did something to make the little edges on each side of the border, but I won't tell yet in case some one guesses : )

I answered to your questions.
I'm afraid that you cannot sell any handcrafted items out of those items from Aranzo or Ado-Chan.
In Japan, it's getting a big problem and the company that holds "licenses" and "rights" are so furious about it.
So keep them as a pleasure, not for sale!

Oh, okay, thanks for filling me in, very good to know. I wasn't sure by what I had read at their site. I don't want to break any rules. They are so cute that it is still worth it just for the sheer joy : )

The right and left side of my border are made from a thin strip I cloned of the second fabric in from the left : ) It might be too hard to tell under the marbilization.
Glad you like the neon rainbow etc.! Sure is fun to make! We have the same fabric! I always love the fabric that you use to make your goods nico. You have very good taste.
See, tonight I made a greeting card and I used one of the Aranzo stamps on the front (to make a pattern), so I was wanting to know if I could sell my cards. Also if I made little characters from the patterns in the book, could I sell my stuffed guys ....and lastly if I used the fabric to make cute little things, could I sell my things....

Ahhh, GORGEOUS fabrics.

Thank you for stopping by and leaving a comment. I have been blogging for years at another site (Xanga) and decided that I needed a change. So far, I adore the community here ... There are so many fun blogs and so much talent.

I think I see dots, so is it from the first fabric from the right or the second fabric from the left? They both have dots. I love the 4th fabric with the well dressed lady!

Wow, blgospot was down for a long time today, but I'm back up now.

Your favorite wife - Thank you! Glad to have you here. I have been discovering how supportive and motivating the creative blogworld can be too, I couldn't be happier with the company : )

Scribbles & bits - you are right, second from the left! I like the lady too, and she is in a square which makes it easy to envision her being used on a square shaped project!

Woohoo! One of my guesses was right! I could see that lvoely lady being in the center with some Eiffel Tower and polka dot fabrics around her, log cabin quilt style. Can't wait to see what you make!

tasha - I had remembered that I did not receive a itemized list with prices and shipping in my email. I just looked in my receipts folder and this seems to be true I did receive a confirmation email from them, but it contained only an order number. I don't remember being too shocked over the shipping, but I did have to wait a long time for my order, over a month (worth it). Here is their shipping info page:

scribbles & bits - you are the winner! See my next post to claim your prize : )

Gina - Thanks for commenting on my blog. I've only been blogging for about five months now and truly enjoy it! I like the marbelized border you made with the fabric and patterns.

I ordered a Cotton & Paint mag from Kitty-Craft two weeks ago and it hasn't arrived yet. I just read that you waited for over a month for your order to arrive so I'm thinking it might be the same with me.

Also, those fleece flower pins are unique and very pretty ")

I wouldn't know it jessica, your blog is a real pleasure. Thank you for the compliment : ) I had a Cotton & Paint in my order too, and I love it by the way. I'm glad you got to read the post so as to quell any worries, yes it could take a few more weeks still, hang in there! Glad to have you here.
