I have a small collection of Japanese Design books and recently I picked up this little gem at Kinokuniya bookstore, "Collections of Yarn and Cloth, Style of Girl". The book has jpgs and pngs of images of sew patches, embroidery, stamps, lots of sweet pictures on a DVD. I'm an Adobe Suite user so that's how will use it but you can also use it in Word if you don't have a design program.
Speaking of design books, my Vintage Ephemera Zine will be out hopefully in March and will also come with a DVD with pngs and jpgs.
Also GREAT NEWS, I will be a vendor in the Brooklyn Zinefest this year on Saturday, April 26th at the Brooklyn Historical Society in Brooklyn Heights which is a beautiful space in a wonderful neighborhood. If you are in town please stop by I'd love to meet you. More details coming soon.
Here's "Style of Girl":
