I saw this on line and I had to have it. Doesn't it look intriguing? The ISBN4-574-80504-B may help you find one on your own. I have never seen it before or since I purchased it. The subtitle says: Reiko Washizawa's Patchwork Quilt World.
Though it is complete with patterns, there are things represented that do not have patterns, which was a little disappointing. Somethings, I suppose, if you are a good seamstress, you could figure out on your own. It is completely written in Japanese, but, like most of the pattern books, they are strongly illustrated, so you can follow them if you have some knowledge of sewing.
The Japanese seem very fond of detail and are masters of it, and their tutorials for fake food endless. I don't know that I will ever make a fake cake, but there are plenty of other fun things to make in here. There are also a lot of quilt patterns that aren't necessarily Alice related. If I could read it, perhaps I would get an explanation of how they consider them so.....
The seller did a really good job of showing many of the illustrations, so I had a pretty good idea of what it offered. Again, though, like I said, some of the things shown are not given instructions. There is a very large Alice doll that does not have instructions, and there are two rabbits that I did not find instructions for.
On Flickr, here and here, I see some Alice parties, and I think some of this would be fun to make if you were throwing a true Tea Party with an Alice theme. If crafts were just a hobby, it would be fun to tackle all these details and see what you have when you are done. There are some cute Cheshire Cat coasters, and the card people are fun.....
That doll is a little bizarre to me. I would like to make its head different. I am not sure how it relates to Alice. It has an iguana look....I am disappointed that there were no flamingos involved.
There are quite a few teapot covers that are cute. This one is a head of lettuce or flower....? Not sure about the fish......the caterpillar, yes.
Well, I guess I have a few things I can try from the book. I am not disappointed completely. Just wish a couple of things they showed, they would have made patterns for, too.
Well, back to work.
