Dawn for various custom orders

I had a raggety old Pound Puppy named Cooper that needed some tender loving care. His ear had been ripped off, and quite a few seams had been pulled open, needing some stuffing and patches. Yukari was meticulous with her restoration, re-stuffing the old boy, and hand-stiching the patches, ensuring the thread matched his colouring. She even added a bow-tie to complete the project. Cooper is now proudly displayed in my living room, and everyone who comes by interacts with him and comments on Yukari’s quality work! I am so happy with the results!

 

I approached Yukari with an idea for something to protect my glass tables. I didn’t want a table-cloth per se, and placemats in the store were far too small. She came over to measure the tables, and I described my very basic idea. Yukari ran with it, coming up with the amazing idea to make double-sided table-toppers using upholstery fabric to the diameter of the table. They fit perfectly, and she did a great job sewing them for my round tables.

 

We had some fabric left over, so she also made toppers for my wardrobes, and even had enough fabric to make a protective sleeve for my journal. 

 

She took my ideas, and made them a reality. Yukari’s stitching is impeccable, and we had a lot of fun brainstorming ideas! ​

F. C. for alterations and custom orders

Yukari recently did some tailoring for me. I really appreciated her attention to detail, the honest and regular communication she provided about its progress, and the speed at which she completed the work. I would strongly recommend her services, and I will certainly seek her services again!

Love the convertible bag backpack/mini purse duo that Yukari made. I am looking forward to using them for a long time to come. They have been great for holding everything I need since I got them and the bag is so versatile! The triangle pouches have also been great for my earphones, those are must-buys and are great for stocking stuffers!

Cathy and Uwe Schellenberg for mending/repairs

Yukari repaired two fabric dog crates that our puppy ripped. We thought we were going to have to throw them out, but she did such a good job that we are able to use them, and they look great!

Yukari has also repaired a dog bed, and done some clothing repairs. These were all done expertly, and efficiently. Thank You Yukari
