isbn 4529043061 tanu (seed):how to make little fluffy felt things from wool ひつじさんの毛でつくるふっくらフェルトこもの

includes projects for snowflakes, penguins, a scarf, bags, accessories, and cute things.

all written instructions are in japanese, but there are clear diagrams and step by step photos for the different kinds of projects, and lovely images of the finished works, which may inspire by cuteness alone!

both needle and wet felting projects are included, some combine both techniques.

this is a good book for someone who already understands the basics of felting. if you know how to felt around a flat resist, the wet felting projects should be no problem.
