Once Upon A Thread: Minna no Kobito (みんなのこびと)

Don’t miss my guest post today for Once upon a Thread at Katy’s blog, No Big Dill! This is a whole month event devoted to projects inspired by children books. Isn’t that sweet? Katy is so full of ideas!

In addition, several wonderful people around the blogland are invited to share their projects, and I’m very honored to participate!

My project is inspired by my -or rather, Sidra’s- favorite children book, みんなのこびと or Minna no Kobito by Toshitaka Nabata, or loosely translated as ‘Everyone’s Kobito’. It is the second book of kobito series and written in the form of Q&A correspondence with a certain kobito expert.

    I like the father and son kobito picture, so adorable!

  • I love this! So playful and creative. My mum used to do a lot of sewing when I was a kid and she used to create the BEST fancy-dress costumes for me. I bet your little son loves it that you make these cool clothes for him. :o))
