Japanese Books: Petit Patterns


Anh-Minh points us to a great find, these Japanese books called Petit Patterns which include a CD rom with all the patterns in EPS and JPEG format. I did a quick search on Amazon Japan and they have what seems like a whole series of them from flowers, dots and stripes, kids and toys, japanese style, scandinaivian style, and more. Smarts & Crafts also has a post about it and how you can use these patterns for all kinds of craft projects. Doing a quick currency conversion, each book is about $24 USD and I’m not sure about shipping costs. You can also try the Kinokuniya stores in the US. Check it all out! Link.

    Looks like Amazon.jp shipping to US is about $22. YesAsia.com also has these books, which is where I ordered two of the series. Each book was about $35 and they qualified for “free shipping” to the US. So, I guess it’s 6 of 1, half-dozen of another in terms of price, eh?

    I was just introduced to these books by Crafty McGee in this post. She is using the patterns to print her own fabric to make a doll quilt. So cool! She gets them at Kinokuniya.
