A far more apt title for this book might be Friggin’ Adorable. OMG. OMG. How FREAKING CUTE? Pups. Twelve breeds of the teeniest, tiniest, fuzziest puppies adorn the pages of this book, and even the uncrafty will be tempted to take up needle and thread to create a companion of their own. Hayano (Cute Dogs, 2009), a connoisseur of miniatures, shares her love of dogs liberally—sprinkling the book with anecdotes and cute mini-photo stories featuring crafters’ best friend. The dogs are so little that each one must be hand-sewn, and if your buddy doesn’t look like the picture, take heart! Hayano provides a photo of her first-ever project, a wonky-eyed mouse she can’t bear to throw away. (Granted, she was in first grade when she made it.) The designs are challenging, but the instructions are thorough. When you’ve finished your pup, don’t forget to make his accessories! He needs a bowl, a bone, chew toys, and a carrier. Fortunately, Hayano has generously provided a catalogue for those items, too. This book easily earns its given title. --Courtney Jones
