On the weekend I went to Daiso, a Japanese dollar store, where everything costs $2.80. When we lived in Japan, I would often visit Daiso, or the hyaku-en (100 yen) store to buy cute stuff for our home. I recently discovered that one had opened in Chatswood, near where we lived in Sydney, and I was so excited!
I found this cute little felt kit to make a lion, there were also other animals.
All the instructions are in Japanese, but it looks fairly easy. I also have an amazing Aranzi Aronzo book that shows you how to make these “felt mascots” if I run into any trouble. I’m looking forward to cutting and sewing sometime this week!
