The Cute Book. Let’s face it: it’s darn cute. This skinny little hardback from the Japanese design team Aranzi Aronzo is full of patterns for “cute and easy-to-make Felt Mascot” [sic], which are tiny creatures you can play with, attach to hair pins, sew onto a tote bag, etc. These little guys are not all-purpose, however:

Weird, yet somehow wonderful. The bunnies, pandas, sprites, bad guys, and others in this easy-to-use craft book will delight young girls and anyone interested in Japanese pop culture. All you really need to get started is some felt, some glue, and a needle and thread.
