.Shop Review - ModeS4U.

I was recently sent some fabric and washi tape from a very funky Japanese store - ModeS4U.
ModeS4U specalises in all things cute and Japanese - fabrics, bags, accessories, washi tapes, and stationary. All imported from Japan and the USA. They have free International shipping for orders over US$78! How good is that?
Here is the gorgeous fabric I received - some lovely Nani Iro double gauze and Echino Cars.
I've worked with both of these fabrics a lot before, so knew that I would love them. The cars fabric has already been made into a pair of shorts for Oscar. Not sure what the double gauze will end up as yet - perhaps a soft blanket for the baby?
I used my trusty Long Boards pattern for the shorts. The boys love these shorts and both have multiple pairs and it seems that is pretty much all they wear.

The detail in these shorts are what really sets them apart from others, funky and practical knee patches, fake fly stitching and front pockets.  The ribbed waistband makes them super comfy and easy to wear and pull on and off.
Along with the fabric, I was also sent a couple of rolls of washi tape. I love washi tape so have happily added this to my collection! I  use it mostly to wrap presents and stick things up around the house, but there are thousands of creative ideas for using washi tape out there.
Thanks for my goodies, ModeS4U - and for introducing me to another cool online shop!
