Almost done blabbing about my Tokyo trip. I thought I would share the best part of my trip - Nippori Fabric Town. It's been a dream to come here. I've heard about this place from blogs I've followed over the years.
Fabric Town has over 100 shops of fabric, lace, embellishments, leather, and so much more. There is a great map I found here: Tokyo Craft Guide website (another great e-book on Crafty Tokyo) which has every shop listed and mapped out for you.

My absolute favorite must go-to place was Tomato. This is the holy grail of fabric. There are 3 locations on this street, and I went to all of them.

My poor husband carried a fifteen pound bag of fabric the rest of the day. Here is what I ended up buying:
I'm working on some new bags with the fabric I purchased. I'll post next time. Till then, Arigato.
