Still more mochi
Naturally, after all my articles about mochi, JoAnn has essentially stopped carrying Pure Plush. I’ve never been able to get plain white, and the colors they did carry were a bit weird (my color sheet is here), so I broke down and ordered some direct from Shenzhen. I got plain white and an arbitrary brown that turned out surprisingly close to JoAnn’s buckskin (/pictured at top for comparison).
It isn’t the exact same fabric; JoAnn’s is almost double-sided, with a sparse front-of-regular-minky texture on the back. This stuff is single-sided, with the same backing regular minky has. I haven’t run it through a machine yet, but I think it’s a keeper (aside from the agonizing almost-six-weeks lead time).
Definitely placing an order for a bunch more colors.
