Totally cute hand sewn felt toys and accessories 14 April 2014
By Shala Kerrigan - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Felt mascots, toys appliques and accessories, all of them super cute. The projects are wonderfully photographed. Like a lot of Japanese craft books, the first part of the book is photos of items, with the instructions in the back of the book. Page numbers are given on the photos to find the instructions.

The photos are adorable. They are captioned and done on good backgrounds to show them at their best. It takes minimal supplies to make them. Craft felt for beginning sewers is an economical choice, then switching to wool felt for a higher quality finished item when you're comfortable with the hand stitching.

So with this book, before you start a project, read the tips at the END of the book. They will show

-how to do the stitches including the embroidery accents
-tell you what kind of supplies to use
-how to use a wire armature,
-how to use the patterns
-how to stuff the toys

The projects are good for a wide range of skills. There are some very easy applique projects, coasters and pouches which are perfect for beginners. They are whimsical and sweet. The Happy Coasters include a fish, a frog face and a chick, with easy embroidered accents. You might like to make the pouches and eyeglass cases as gifts.

A little more complicated are the lightly stuffed but still mostly flat Face Brooches, which are a bunch of cute animals and can be made with small scraps, the finger puppets and the charms which are strung with beads into darling hanging curtains. My favorite of those types of projects is the Little Forest Birds charms because it reminds me of the felt ornaments my Great-Aunt Elizabeth made.

The most complicated are the fully dimensional stuffed toys. These are more of a challenge because it's a small scale, but they are made using the same basic stitches, just more parts to create things like a giraffe, elephant or posable retro dolls that look like they came right off the set of an old stop motion movie. There are also dolls like Miss Kitty from the cover that have a full wardrobe you can sew for them.

Some of the patterns you'll copy out of the book, the more involved patterns are printed on the inside of the dust jacket. The diagrams in the instructions are clear and show how to put the items together.

This is a lovely book, and a must for anyone who really enjoys Japanese crafts.
[I received a complimentary copy of the book to review on my craft blog- Don't Eat the Paste. I received no other compensation, and my review is my honest opinion of the product.]

Literally made my day to find this on Amazon! 8 Dec. 2014
By Joyce - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
As expected from Naomi Tabatha, more quality and cute patterns! I have some of her other books in Japanese, and they cost me $20 as opposed to the below $10 here on Amazon. They're of comparable quality, and the books are also the same exact size. Just as a head's up, like her other books, the patterns have to be enlarged by 200%. They're still easy to follow and put together, but I'd probably recommend this book for people that have sewing/felt work experience, rather than for people with no experience.

I am off to make the cat for my daughter
I do think it has great instructions and wonderful photos illustrating the creations 5 Jan. 2015

I purchased this for my 9 year old daughter who loves creating from felt. It's a little too hard for her (a beginner at sewing). In her own words this one is for "pros". I think it's for folks who are a little more advanced with their needle work. I do think it has great instructions and wonderful photos illustrating the creations.
