New Japanese Craft Book
This book is ISBN 4277430902. The Title is Kids Bags and Variety Goods. I found it at my local Mitsuwa Marketplace bookstore. I'd hoped to find some felt craft books, but this is a good substitute. Here's some photos for you to enjoy:
Posting patterns out of these books is a big no-no for me, but this is just to give you an idea what the instructions are like in the bag/pursemaking books. I have absolutely no trouble with the felt mascot books and the crochet pattern books are pretty easy too, once you understand the charts. This, however is a little bit more tricky. This book has a packet of full size patterns for the appliques and fabric, but I'd recommend knowing a little bit of what you are doing with bag construction.
I tried doing a search at YesAsia to see if they carry this book. I couldn't find it, but they might have it in eventually...
