Please be aware that Mrs. Teiko Fujito's "Tatted Fashion" book is a reprint of the Japanese language version published by Nihon Vogue in their "Do It Yourself" series #13 in 1978. Long out of print, second hand copies have been a treasured prize. The English language version offers instructions in photos and illustrations. Every movement of the thread is documented. 28 of the 104 pages are in full color.

There are written instructions as well as wonderfully clear, numbered diagrams which accompany each pattern. This soft cover large format book (8.5" x 10" or 21 x 25 cm) has traditional style doilies and motifs, and features fashion accessories, shawls, purses, and unbelievably large projects for home decor too!
