Meet Rika the Rabbit, Pao the Elephant, Miki the Monkey, and a whole host of easy-to-make, super-cute Japanese characters. All you need is a needle, thread, and some brightly colored felt to bring these new friends to life!
Felt Friends from Japan is a treasure trove of delightful felt projects - 86 in all - including not just adorable soft toys but also coin purses, bags, cell phone holders, badges, and flowers. Author Naomi Tabatha has gone for a retro feel, capturing the style she remembers from her childhood in Japan during the 1960s and 1970s.
Every project features clear step-by-step instructions accompanied by beautiful, full-color photographs and cut-out patterns. An explanatory section covers the basic stitches and techniques used. Everything is hand-sewn and requires only felt and a needle and thread.
