Faux Sweets

How do you combine two of my favorite things in the world – coffee and sewing? By purchasing an adorable Frappuccinio polymer clay pin!

I got this little cutie from kishcrafts’ Etsy shop and it arrived in the mail yesterday. Although I don’t have any plans on ever using it, it certainly looks great sitting on top of my Cup ‘o Joe pincushion.
Also in the mail – My Favorite Felt Sweets. Bret and Taylor had ordered this book for me for my birthday and I’ve been staring at it ever since. This book was originally a Japanese craft book (it was high on my wish list) that was recently translated into English. I haven’t made anything yet, but from what I can tell, the directions are going to be very easy to follow.

    Wow, the goodies in that new book look so REAL. Fancy sweets are a big deal in Japan. The lower level (basement) of the fancy department stores have rows and rows of glass cases full of beautiful sweets. The appearance is even more important than the taste. Most have very delicate fruit flavors – but savory ‘sweets’ are popular too. Many sweets resemble specific objects(toys, autumn leaves, cherry blossoms,etc – in season) . Sweets are most often purchased in lovely boxed assortments as gifts. And they are rather expensive.
