I have always wanted to make a Kokeshi doll…but don’t dare to try it as I have no confident that it will work out the way I wanted…

oh, by the way…kokeshi means Japanese Doll & it originated from Northern Japan & it is made from wood…

So, 1 fine day last week, I started to experiment it. After about 3 hours of trial & error, this is what I get…
Then, I do another version…

Put it side by side…it looks like this:

Gotten some feedback from a lot of friends…the doll in pink looks a lil’ eerie to me…LOL
So, I corrected my stitches on the following day to this & added the big eyes as my hubby said it will make it more kawaii…so I did! You know, all guys have this fantasy about super big eyes japanese girls…LOL
This corrected version looks a lot better than the old ones yea…
Just for your comparison between the 1st & corrected version:
Now that I have gotten the right stitches, I made another 2 designs of the dolls…
Next I am going to do 1 set with big eyes…LOL
