I realized I never shared the fun things I actually purchased when I went to Purl Soho. This book was my favorite find: a book of Japanese stitching and sewing crafts for babies! (We have a whole slew of nephews arriving this fall, so we are in full-on Baby Stuff mode!)
This adorable book is by Aranzi Aronzo and comes from Japan.
Every single project is charming - as are the instructions. It's like reading a comic book. And the instructions are in English! (Which is so helpful for those of us who are Japanese-Language/Character-Challenged.)
Seriously cute, no?
My copy at Purl Soho cost $14.95 (list price). You can order the books from the Aranzi Aranzo site, (which is equally charming and adorable, by the way - be sure to read the page about Mr. Aranzi and Mr. Aranzo) but the prices are listed in Yen.
However, you may want to be my best friend when I tell you this, Baby Stuff is also available on Amazon.com as well as the books Cute Stuff, Fun Dolls.
