Aaaaaaa! Yet another book that I am officially TOO OLD for!

Based on the glowing reviews, I ordered this sight unseen. On the plus side, I love the layout and the easy-to-follow cartoony instructions. BUT, the designs seem...uninspired. Yes, there are cute bunnies and bears and plenty of objects wearing smiley faces, but they are repeated over and over again on different projects from tissue holders to little purses. These would make great gifts for 8-year-old girls, but I'm not sure who else wou

Recommends it for: Craft Enthusiasts
This is one of the most adorable craft books I've almost ever seen. So much fun to read, and many fun and easy crafts to do, all of which include instructions on how the craft could be altered to best fit your intended purposes. Loved it!

Very cute ideas and lots of visuals to help out. It includes patterns you can copy and all of them are relatively fun and simple.

Such a cute book with very simple yet very practial designs! I also own cute dolls which I have not made much from but I am surprised how often I make something from this book whether just an applique or an actual project and actually feel a lot of the projects are very useful. Because they are so simple I think it leaves lots of room for me to expand on making the projects my own!

Seriously cute stuff. Nice, clear instructions, with the patterns all laid out for you to copy and get crafting. I am looking forward to making practically everything in here!

Recommends it for: crafties that love the cute Japanese way of doing things
I love books that are written in a format that's all new to me! Who would have thought of putting a little comic strip with characters that guide you through the patterns in the book? Normally I prefer photos in how-to books, but these drawings made things really straightforward and fun. Love love LOVE the appliques! I want to put them on EVERYTHING!!

Recommends it for: crafters/artists who need inspiration or just more projects to make!
Shelves: arts-and-crafts
It lives up to it's title - all the projects are definitely cute and, as others have mentioned, are very simple to make. I love the descriptions of the projects, too! Very cute and funny. This book has helped me learn how to do some things better (like sewing a zipper into a pouch) and has inspired me to make these projects in my own style.

So much fun to look at! Some cute projects and instructions that I think teens (and up) would be able to follow. I really only liked the water bottle cozy to actually make, but I think it needs a lining and that Insul-bright to keep the temps right. This pattern didn't show either of those. But still a fun book!

I loved all the cute project ideas. The directions are humorously and simply explained with both words and illustrations. Piece of cake!

i was *this* close to buying this at Michael's tonight, and they changed the wording on the 40% off coupons to not include books and magazines. :(

i'm definitely going to buy it though. it looks so fun and some of the projects look fairly easy.

Okay book. I wouldn't make most of the dolls in it- except maybe sprite aka coolman pg 12. Most of the dolls by the way are not cute- but, the explainations I really like-very detailed with lots of pictures to help visual learners like myself.

Recommends it for: new sewers, fans of japanese craft
This book really lives up to it's name. Now if I could find some time to try one or two of the projects! They are great for new sewers like me - especially those with little kids - lots of ideas for handmade gifts (to make) for little ones.

Craft book/sewing. Aranzi Aronzo shows us how to make cute tote bags, zipper pouches, tissue pouches, hair accessories, scarves, and appliques and provides plenty of inspiration for further projects.

This book is in Japanese, but there are so many diagrams that I can figure out the patterns anyway. Lots of fun stuff to make.

This is such a fun book. Every project in it is easy to create, even if you have only a basic grasp of sewing.
