Sometimes Japanese designs are so cute, you can't just resist them and you have no choice but to make them, even if they may not be extremely functional. In my case, I had to make these cute cup or jar cosies from Lacy Crochet. They're little gifts I gave to my sisters when I visited them over the weekend. And thanks Bonnie for taking the photo of them!
From the same book, I made myself a vintage looking potholder. And I will confess that there are more of Lacy Crochet's cute little things in the works.
