Some tips when buying a Japanese craft book ~
- I like it when a book includes patterns pieces; so if you find a book you like with patterns..SCORE ~
- Not all Japanese craft books offer clear-detailed explanations (via images for non-Japanese speaking folks); so it's always a good thing to take a look through the instructions before making a purchase
Happy Day (^*^)
