Nyanta catOctober 27, 2006 at 9:19 pm | Posted in Craft - Blogs, Craft - Inspirations, Craft - People | 3 Comments
TGIF. The tutorial in this morning was cancelled, thus I got an extra long weekend. After a nice nap in the afternoon, I started to look around my electronic craftbook collection. Miki Fujii(藤井美紀)’s cat Nyanta is my found.
Nyanta is a tabby cat as the main role of the series of applique designs in Cotton Friend since winter of 2003. It was from Ada’s blog that I saw the the whole series of totally 12 pieces corresponding to 12 months at the first time . Tao has also made her own version of Nyanta cats.
For those who can read Japanese, here is Miki Fujii’s short profile.
I didn’t find much her information via search engines. There is no book from her in amazon.jp. As it is said in the profile, she has/is going to have some book(s) published. I am quite looking forward to her designs.
She also has a few craft kits of stuffed Nyanta selling on bellne.com. All the little sets are very inspiring. Chikaty posted her Nyanta cats in her blog. The fabrics used for the softies make the sets so traditional, while the figures are quite contemporary. I think she made a good combination. For more tradional designs from here, see the set of fabric pictures.
