Japanese Books

On the 8th of May, my family and I went to KL because of my husband’s cousin wedding. On top of that, I have an agenda to accomplish while I was in KL. So, on the first day, we went to Kinokuniya in KLCC. The bookstore is so big that I might be lost in it. The books are divided into different sections by language.

So, I went to the Japanese section, hoping to find the sewing books that I dreamed about for so long. I roamed through the bookshelves at the Craft section looking for baby and toddlers handmade sewing books. I found many sewing books for children. I ran through all the pages of each book, trying to find which one will fit for my taste. With a limited budget amount of money, I chose this sewing book. This has patterns for 60,75,80,90. Which I think from 6 months until 3 years old (worth the money spent).

Besides that, I also looked at the crochet and knitting section, I found this lovely book “Crochet Lace”. It has various designs of doily and also have patterns for making flowers and bags too.

I was so eager to try one of the patterns, so I made this while I was at home.
