japanese pattern project

i had been wanting to make something from a japanese pattern for a while but was a bit intimidated since i do not read the language.  i finally gave in to all of the beautiful images of these projects and decided to buy a pattern log.  when i opened it up i was even more nervous.  i can't believe how many patterns they squeeze on to one sheet!

while i located all of the appropriate pieces, then traced and cut,
i sent suki and adam to the fabric shop. this is the fabric they decided on, it is called "heavy metal".

over all i am pleased with how they turned out, and it was not as difficult as i expected.  i did not even seem rip once!  hopefully i will make her one of everything on that pattern sheet.
