Using all sorts of beautiful fabrics, we saw some incredible pieces of work. These included dresses, baby items and more. The ones we found on display, which you can see below, featured very intricate and delicate designs.

Sewing enthusiast were especially loving the various amounts of fabrics on display and there were plenty of fabrics too!

Japan Hobby Show 2016 – Part 2

At the Japan Hobby Show this year, we came across some of the most incredible “food” treats, made entirely out of wool! That’s right, some of the sweet treats we found were really woolly masterpieces, proving you don’t have to be a knitting pro to make something fun with wool! We also saw the most stunning “desserts” made of clay, done with and without the help of clay molds and craft accessories. They’re so realistic, no one would blame you if you thought you could eat them. From fruity treats to cakes, these creations were colorful and a feast for the eyes. We also came across beautiful plants made entirely out of clay too. These plants are extremely popular, with many individuals adorning their homes and work places with these handmade decorative pieces.
