All Your Kids Need
If you are interested in Japanese crafting for kids, but you can get just one book, this is the one! This book is a veritable encyclopedia (it weighs more than 1.5 pounds!) of crafts for kids: clothing, recipes, crafts, costumes, school supplies, etc. Full size patterns are included.
Note that the magazine is written in Japanese, but patterns and schematics are included. Crafters who cannot read Japanese but who have some sewing experience are usually able to interpret the instructions without any trouble, and others can use the projects as inspiration for their own creations.
