wish list…

For the very first time I have a true wish list with one item on it — this book! 100 Felt Mascots!

I actually saw this at a bookstore while in Hong Kong. A how-to book for making really cute cellphone charms. It was translated into Chinese and I read it cover to cover twice and could not put it down. It is so. Ridiculously. Cute. But I decided to buy another more practical book at the time (sewing clothes without drawing patterns! I’m not very good at sewing, so it’s a good learning book) and thought, I’ll think about it more and if I really want the 100 Mascots I’ll come back for it — the bookstore was just around the corner from the flat we stayed at. But I forgot! There were so many things to do and places to see and people to visit, I forgot about the book! And now it’s too late! *kicks self*

Yesterday I stumbled upon it again on Chubby Hobby and I love it even more :’(
Then I found a Flickr set with lots of pictures of the book and felt so happy to see all the familiar faces of the tofu and pudding and radishes again, but it is nothing like holding the pages of the book…

Oh well. It will remain a wish until I see the book in person again.

In the meanwhile, seeing images of the book again has inspired a craft, but that deserves a post of its own. So stay tuned! :D
