For a while now I've been wanting to start a little shop to sell patterns and other items I've designed, but up until today I haven't been able to find the time. So I'm so excited to post that I've finally set up shop and my first item is a pattern and tutorial for these little baby kokeshi dolls.
I designed these as gifts for Girl's Day this year and they are just under 1 1/2" (38 mm) in height and so much fun to make. The pattern and tutorial is available as a 9 page PDF file that features color photographs with a material list, step by step instructions, and lots of tips.
It was a challenge trying to keep the PDF file size down since I included so many photographs, but I wanted to make sure that there was enough steps that even a beginning crafter would find it a breeze to make. And it really is, I promise!
I'm not good at self promotion but I really hope you'll be as excited about your baby kokeshi as I am. Make some for yourself or as gifts for friends. They're the right scale for decorating your Re-ment or other doll house miniatures and the perfect size kokeshi doll for all you Blythe fans as well. Here's one sitting in Miss Kitty's living room.
I also include some ideas for other uses for your finished kokeshi and an option for turning it into a bead. So if you want to learn how to make a baby kokeshi, go to my shop site. Mahalo nui loa everyone!
