first... thank you SO MUCH for all the underdog love. you guys are amazing. really. thank you! and now.... eye candy.....
have you seen the new aranzi arono books being offered in english? they are really really sweet. and while it's easy enough to figure out the japanese craft books because of the pictures - having the instructions in english just makes it THAT much simpler.
i really want to make the monkey.... [sorry i tried to take a photo of my book, but the reflection in it was horrid - check out the aranzi site - it's the little monkey at the top of the page] i have the perfect excuse to [someone just had a baby]. so if i can get it together i'll show you... i wish i had more softie making time.... sigh.
they also have the bad book . which doesn't have instructions on how to make softies, but just look at how cute the bad guy is !! [um why do i think a softie trying to stuff a change purse up his shirt is SO funny. there might be something wrong with me]
you can buy the books directly from the aranzi website or from amazon . happy stitching!
