this book is an amazing collection of needle felted japanese sweets. there is a wide variety of items, and a good range from simple to more complex projects. all written instructions are in japanese, although diagrams and photos give a pretty clear explanation, and most projects are so simple that you could recreate them just by looking at them. a beginning needle felter would have no problem with the simpler projects, and be able to work their way through the book. that being said, if you have never tried needle felting before, you might want to look up some simple instructions in english before starting these projects.
