In this charming picture book, Coco-Chan waits impatiently for her mother to finish sewing her new kimono. As Mama stitches, Coco-Chan's attention skips to a dragonfly who flits through the window and beckons her outside. Stepping into the garden, Coco-Chan discovers a wonderful world where she is able to chat with the bugs and beetles and play with them among the flowers and grasses. The colors, patterns, and even the little butterflies on her kimono come to life and become her playmates. A lovely gift to teach children a little bit about Japanese culture--and about sewing!
As an added bonus, there is a pattern and instructions for making a paper kimono at the back of the book. It's a perfect Japan-inspired craft to share with young children.
This pretty journal is a perfect gift for crafts enthusiasts. Most of the pages are blank, ready for recording ideas, thoughts, or sketches. Yet there are also simple sets of instructions you can use to fold paper or fabric into flowers as you contemplate your day! A ribbon book mark and magnetic close make for ease of use. .
A beautiful gift for friends who love crafts! There is plenty of room to keep a journal or make sewing notes. While you're thinking of what to write, pick up a piece of paper and fold it into flower shapes, following the simple drawings in the margins. There is even a pocket at the back of the journal to keep some pretty origami papers.
