It's cute though. A little tricky to sew, but I love the style of the pattern - yet another Japanese craft book marvel. This would work equally as well in non-padded fabric, I think. In fact, I may try it at some point. And cut it to the right size.
The fabric cost 200 yen a metre (I bought a metre) at Tomato's discount shop. The ties are made from bias I already had and the ruffles are from a 100 yen flea market fabric.
