Tenugui mumbling Vol.90 – How to use tenugui by Bunny-chan

Saturday, April 16th, 2011


Bunny-chan is introducing you how to use Tenugui!

Bunny-chan is introducing you how to use Tenugui!

Her name is Bunny-chan, and she is introducing you how to use Tenugui! She loves Tenugui very much , as much as I do! This is a card holder for my new tenugui project “?I HEART JAPAN Tenugui Project” , and my sweet friend Emiko put all my bunnies together on the card. (Thank you Emiko!!!!)
I designed and produced a special tenugui to help emotional support to the suvivors of the devastating earthquake and tsunami that struck Japan on March 11th, 2011.

When customers purchase “I HEART JAPAN” tenugui online or events, we’ll send a mame-shibori tenugui which has been very popular among the Japanese for centuries, with their care messages to the survivors. I choose a heart shaped card which I found them in Paper Source, Brooklyn, and I named it as Kokoro Card. Kokoro means Heart in Japanese…

This is a donation mame-shibori tenugui with Kokoro Card and bunny-chan card holder!

I would like to continue this project as long as I can, and my goal is for all the survivors to receive a tenugui and a kokoro card someday… and I am sure that Bunny-chan will bring a smile to them also.

Tenugui mumbling Vol.88 – Happy Easter Tenugui mouse pad

Friday, April 1st, 2011

bunny tenugui as a mouse pad, and mameshibori as an arm rest, and a chick tape measure as a company

I spend most of my day on my computer 7-days a week, 365-days a year.?Did you know that Tenugui can be used as a mouse pad and an arm rest as well?

Here is my Easter theme mouth pad and an arm rest. My bunny tenugui is 9-years old, and mame-shibori (doted print) is 15-years old. Wow,? I realized now he (mame-shibori tenugui)?is very old!!!! Somehow I called my bunny tenugui as HER, and mame-shibori as HIM. strange? I purchased a chick tape measure in my favorite store Papar Presenation, in Chelsea recently. They are perfect together, and help my work!

Sometimes I’ll get tired even when working on?things that I’m devoted to… but Tenugui always?gives me nice warm cheers and comfort. Let’s have a cup of tea, and get back to my project!!!!!

And… I can’t wait to tell you about my new projetct to support Japan very very soon!!!!!!!
