Did you know that you can buy fabric and notions on Etsy? I've been doing it for a little while now, especially when it's something that's kind of hard to find (i.e. Viking fabric), but you can generally get really good deals on craft and sewing supplies.
That brings me to my latest finds: Farbenmix ribbons. It's made in Germany, but manages to have both a Nordic and Japanese vibe at the same time, in my opinion. This stuff is ridiculously cute!
