SUMMARY- This book is in Japanese and English. The translation to English is with the Japanese instructions and there are diagrams. She employs tiling motifs to create her fabrics for the seven(7) bag/purse patterns you get in her second book. Three of the purses have a matching necklace pattern, and you get one bonus necklace. She does include diagrams, but no close-up photos of the motifs, so this book really needs you to be an experienced tatter. I was really pleased to see a second book from Ms. Hatakeyama so promptly after her debut, and there aren't that many books out there with a purse theme. I was really happy to buy her second book, and am looking forward to the third.
