Japanese Craft Books

I have finally taken pictures of the lovely Japanese craft books I picked up at Kinokuniya.



The inspiring contents of Handmade Cafe...



And Hand Made Bags was set up with 6 different bag shapes...



And then ways to embellish them...

With an inspirational note before the patterns and directions.
