    The book is the last one listed on this page http://www.mybluemoon.us/origami/2007/09/books-i-own.html
    Unfortunately it's not available online, as far as I know.

    I don't understand the things at the bottom of page 1 and what the bold triangles are supposed to be. Could you help me out? I don't understand what to do.

    Hi Adam,

    The line at the bottom of page 1 is explaining how to connect line 9 and line 10 in more detail. Connecting body and head.

    Thank you! Oh, and what are the two rows below row one? Is it just like an extra ring at the bottom?

    Yes, it makes the base more stable, so model will be standing on edge of the triangles, instead of on the point of the triangles.

    Look at the bottom of page 1
    http://origami.bluepop.us/diagram/sanrio-06-1.jpg

    It tells you how to connect the 28 unit body to 35 unit head. Basically instead of matching one for one, like normal, you need to skip every couple unit. For example, starting from the left, the left side of second unit of the body, is going to right side of second unit of the head, skipping half a unit.

    IM CONFUSED ON WHICH ONES ARE INVERTED AND WHICH ONE IS NORMAL.

    All the inverted ones are hidden from view. They are at the base of the 2 spheres, to make the base flat. In the diagram, they are represented with right side up triangles. There are only 3 rows of inverted ones, if I remember correctly.

    Thanks for all your diagrams :) I have a question for you.
    I have made 2 swans (one about with a base of 40, another one with a base of 80), and I was confused as to the orientation of the Hello Kitty diagram. The up-pointing triangles ∆, are they like the triangles which form the swan? Or are they pointing the other way? Sorry, but I am quite confused, and as the thumbnail of the finished model is pretty small, I couldn't really reach any conclusions based on it.
    Regards,Patrick

    Hey, thank you so much for this posting. I am a Hello Kitty fan and I was searching for origami diagrams on web when I found your blog. I have just completed my Hello Kitty. She wears green t-shirt and red salopette and a green ribbon. I also made a hat b ut it doesn't fit. She is soo cute!

    Do you have a diagram/suggestion for making a small 3D Hello Kitty? like 3" tall only? It does not have to be as intricate but still recognizable as Hello Kitty. Thanks!

    You just need to use smaller pieces of paper for the units. I think about 2cm x 4cm will do.

    On the top portion, the 4cmx7cm, is that the size of paper you should use to make the triangles? Thanks!

    HELP!!! i am so lost. I have been trying to figure this out for hours and am like completely lost....can someone please help >.<

    Which part do you need help with? My best advice is to play around with the pieces without glue to get an idea of how pieces can fit together, so you can figure out what different orientation of the triangle in the diagram means.
