Handmade Fabric Book Cover Workshop





Hello Sandwiches!

I hope you had a lovely weekend!

If you're in Tokyo on March 5th I hope you can come along to my Handmade Fabric Book Cover Workshop at Shibaura House.

Here are the details from the Shibaura House website:

Hello Sandwichさんによるワークショップ。季節に応じたテーマでかわいいものをつくります。第5回は、ファブリックブックカバーです。

今回のワークショップでは、布製のブックカバーを手縫いで作ります。好きな本を持ってきて、そのサイズに合わせてフェルトの裏地付きのカバーを作りましょう。持ってきていただくのは、小説でもノートでもかまいません。もしも小さなノートカバーを作ったら、いつでもハンドバッグに入れて持ち運べますね。もちろんデコレーションも忘れずに。ボタンやリボン、トリム、ポンポンなど、さまざまな素材を用意しますので、心ゆくまで楽しみましょう。このクラスで学んだ知識があれば、おうちに帰って違う本のカバーをつくることも、お友だちにプレゼントすることもできます。フォトアルバムのカバーだって作れます。SHIBAURA HOUSEで開催する、今年初めてのワークショップです。皆さんに会えるのを楽しみにしています! -ハロー・サンドイッチ。

In this workshop you will make your very own hand stitched fabric book cover to fit any size book of your choice. Please bring along the book you would like to cover and you will learn how to make a felt lined book cover to your custom size. The book could be a novel or a simple notebook. If you would like to make a cute mini size notebook cover you could carry it in your handbag at all times. After we make the book cover base, you can enjoy decorating your book cover with assorted buttons, ribbons, trims and pompoms till’ your hearts contend. Using the skills and techniques learnt in this class you can continue to make covers for other books at your home. Wouldn’t it also be cute to make a cute cover for your friend! You could even cover a mini photo album with these handmade book covers.

Kusakanmuri is a new shop opened by Japanese publishers BNN. It's a florist, but with an amazing twist. You get to make your own bunch by yourself after picking the beautiful flowers from each bucket yourself! There is a giant timber table and you can enjoy arranging and wrapping your flowers all by yourself. Ofcourse if you would prefer for someone to make the flowers for you, you can! They also have a florist school and a gorgeous zakka shop upstairs! If you're in Ebisu be sure to pop in!

Hello Sandwiches.

Have you sent your Christmas or New Years Cards yet? I still haven't sent mine :( but we did have a lovely time making some cards together at the Hello Sandwich Nengajo Making workshop at Commune Gallery this week. We did lots of hand stamping and used collage papers, mt tape and markers to decorate our cards.



Boys come to Hello Sandwich Workshops too!

If you haven't been to commune gallery, it's worth popping in. They have some great exhibitions and also sell some cute zakka items and zines. Also, Miyuki-chan who is the owner speaks perfect English and is so lovely, so please say hello to her if you visit!

I hope you have a lovely weekend Sandwiches.
