Tokyo is a handicraft shopping heaven! Which is why I like it here so much 😛
The name Okadaya is probably not new to any crafters, I’ve heard about it before I came to Japan and was eager to go and check it out!!
I wasn’t too impressed when I got there, the first floor was selling cosmetics= = I thought I went to the wrong place! (but nothing is too weird in Japan!)
The store is divided into two spaces, one dedicate for craft supplies, felt, yarns and accessories, and the other for fabrics!!! Since I didn’t have a sewing machine so I wasn’t too keen to check out the fabric section 😛
After spending a good few hours there, I bought some supplies that I think I can use without a sewing machine hehe… See the sew-on purse frame, I’ve always wanted to try one!
I’ve been searching for a thimble for while and this is the first time I found one that fits me, Size S, awesome!! OK, i have small fingers 😛
Needles and pins for knitting & crocheting! They have round tips, so won’t damage your yarns! I was planning to do more crocheting that’s why I got them^^
I got a few pieces of 50 x 30 cm fabric pieces from the patchwork section, I was thinking maybe I can do some hand sewing haha
I also got some yarns, but I forgot to take photos of them 😛
Although I didn’t buy that much, the truth is being in a craft store and looking at all the creative stuff made me happy already!!^^
PS. I actually went to Okadaya 2 weeks ago haha what a late post!! And the good news is I have my sewing machine with me now!!! My boyfriend brought it over for me when he visited last week!!!^^ Happy~
