Crafty Tokyo Mama in Kyoto, Japan after moving from Tokyo.

Janine makes tote bags and pouches from fabulous fabrics like this Japanese patterned one shown to the right here.

Her notebooks are a new addition to her shop and are also made with pieces left over from her totes, as she shows us on her blog.
