Double gauze fabric is literally two layers of thin gauze fabric which is breathable and airy while the double layer lends a bit of weight to give it a nice shape.

It is especially nice for summer garments in Japan since the fabric is lightweight but not see-through. Double gauze also makes for ultra soft and cozy garments and accessories, and even be the perfect fabric for quilts. 

The most renowned and fantastic selection of double gauze fabrics are undoubtedly from the incredible Nani Iro collection.

DIY Arm Chair Remote Control Holder Organizer

Are you a huge movie buff and always lose the remotes? My husband is. I decided to make a remote control and magazine/newspaper holder organizer to drape over the side of couch. The long end can tuck under the seat cushion to hold it in. Hoping my partner is happy with it and I no longer have a hard time to search for the remote somewhere else!

April means the blooming of the pink cherry trees (or sakura in Japaneses) and it is not limited to Japan only, but also throughout Canada and Northern America. Let’s enjoy the sights and take an early spring picnic under the cherry blossom with family and friends.
