Sewing Japanese

As some of you know, I love Japanese pattern books, especially those with modern patterns aimed at little girls.  The excitement in purchasing almost any Japanese craft book is the anticipation of its arrival, the fact that you don't know (despite a small preview of several patterns) exactly what you might get and the subsequent day-dreaming after it arrives.  They are very inspiring, but they can be quite pricey and often have to be shipped from Japan.  

As a result, I've been frequenting Japanese Craft Journal, a blog that reveals snippets of the Japanese Crafting world.  I was intrigued by these patterns blogged about on Japanese Craft Journal.  They can be bought one at a time, not in a book, which doesn't lighten the wallet quite so much.  Even though the surprise factor is gone, these patterns are so sweet.
