i was just wondering if any of you had some japanese style felt animal patterns you can post up. or send to me.
i found a book called Lovable Mini Dolls by Terumi Otaka, that has exactly what i'm looking for but it is too expensive Sad if anyone has this book or other books, could you please send me some scans of the patterns?

Thanks Smiley

I'd love to find a book or something on them too. I've been searching the net and some of the books out there are SO expensive once you start adding shipping costs to them.

I have Terumi's book, but the title is different.  Maybe it's not what you want, but I'm sending you the pic anyway.

Don't forget to check out Crafting Japanese at http://www.craftlog.org/craftingjapanese/ when you're looking for some Japanese craft books to order.  It lists all the ISBNs so you can find them easily on sites and has links to pics inside the books and projects people have made from them!  That way, even if it is expensive, you can make sure you're getting the book you want when you order it from eBay or whereever!!  Also, there is a list of links to real-life an donline retailers that may be useful to you.  HTH Smiley

Oh Gosh I'm so glad I found this section.  I have collected over the years many Ondori Felt Crafting books and love making those little felt dolls.  I am also looking for new books and you all are right THEY ARE VERY EXPENSIVE and hard to find since many of the sites that you would look for these book are all in Japanese.  I can't read it, but when making rag dolls and such, I can definitely put together the patterns with the pictures, how to's, etc.  Just an FYI if you find a Japanese book store, the price usually is about $15.00-$18.00 for any one of these types of books.  So Ebayers are making alot of money selling them for $25.00-$40  Roll Eyes.

Gosh I've been everywhere on the internet looking for specific HandCraft books from Japan.  Even with the ISBN's I am not having any luck finding the one's I'm looking for.  Unfortunately, although I can navigate around Amazon Japan, all the books that I'm interested in will not be shipped to the US.  I'm looking for back issues of the COUNTRY DOLL series by Gakken Interior Mook.  Again, the ONLY place I am able to find these issues is in Amazon Japan.  Does any know of someone who can obtain, has these, and are willing to work with me to obtain and have them shipped?  I understand this series is not out of print, however I know they are still avaiable out there.  Any help is SOOOO GREATLY appreciated.  Hugs - Terri US Hawaii Huh

P.S. I've also tried YesAsia and other internet based places with no luck.  What a bummer!!   Cry
