Kokeshi - New Pattern!



I collect kokeshi dolls -you know, the cute wooden Japanese dolls with helmet hair and no arms or legs. There's a collection in my kitchen, a teensy one dangling from my cellphone, and lately - oodles of them invading my desk. So naturally, I decided to transform them into Kokeshi Doll embroidery patterns! They are going to be so sweet when you stitch them up!

Above are a few other Kokeshi finds on Etsy from Mirabel, Temple7e (yes. that is a princess leia kokeshi) and Stephanie Fizer.
