1  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Hello Kitty Kimono on: January 21, 2007 11:31:16 PM
My daughter asked me to make her a kimono for her Hello Kitty. I have a Japanese book on making kimono for children, it was fairly easy to scale  it down to a stuffed animal, although a bit challenging to adapt to kitty's proportions. It ended up being a bit bunchy across the shoulders but my daughter was satisfied.

I got lazy in the end and just did a plain bow for the obi, I may redo it with something more elaborate.
2  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Happy Onigiri Family on: March 09, 2006 10:19:12 PM
Just something quick I stitched up for my daughters to play with.

3  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Hedgehog nuigurimi on: March 09, 2006 09:18:57 AM
I am very pleased with how this little hedgehog turned out. I saw a picture in one of my Kuri Kuri books (ISBN-576-04213-0), There was no pattern, but I thought it looked simple, knowing that often simple things can be a bit difficult to execute. It needs a bit of tweaking--I put the back paws up a little high and fake fur part should have been more like 2/3 of the body instead of 1/2. Still, he's pretty cute and it would be easy to make more.

4  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Toilet Stuffie on: March 08, 2006 07:51:58 AM
Inspired by one of my Japanese crafting books, I made this:

The one in the book is actually a whole bathroom made of felt, so the toilet sits against the wall. The one I made won't stand upright unless it's leaning against something. And I don't like how the seat and lid won't lie flat. I put cardboard in both of them, but I think maybe I should have put a piece of cardboard under the top of the toilet bowl as well. Still, my elder daughter is delighted with it--she'd wanted me to make one ever since she saw the picture and now the little one wants me to make her one as well.

These were Christmas gifts for my daughters. The one with the black ears is a cat, the gray one is supposed to be a fox

6  UNITED STATES / Ohio / Japanese Resources on: August 27, 2005 08:56:20 PM

Anyone know if it's possible to find Japanese craft books--or really any Japanese books/magazines in Ohio? I am in Cleveland, but would be willing to drive up to two hours to find stuff. So far the Asian stores that I have checked in Cleveland don't carry much Japanese stuff.
7  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Dias de los Muertos Cat on: August 03, 2004 02:05:12 PM
My daughter and I made a sort of soft sculpture Day of the Dead figure:

 


I's about 10 inches, made of muslin and embroidered with floss, stuffed with wool batting.


I was going to make a small cat out of sculpey, but M was afraid it would break and wanted something soft to play with. I think it might have worked better to use wool felt instead of muslin, but still pleased with how it turned out.
