I had an urge to crochet and started crocheting a peanut with some fuzzy yarn I found lurking around. And bit by bit, it became my cute little kimono baby.  Grin
I free-formed her and I didn't write down a pattern.. She's 8.5cm(about 3.3inches) and rather easy to make. Just crochet a peanut form, add hands and legs. The kimono is not that difficult to make either. I made it pieces then assembled it. If anyone wants to try making one I'd make some kind of a tutorial. Oh, by the way, she can take off her kimono. I might even make her some other new clothes to wear.. Haha..

Hug me...

Just to show off her obi(obi is the ribbon thing.. not a japanese word for butt)

The back of the kimono

Do you think I should make her some shoes or give her a mouth?
Thanks for looking Smiley  Comments and critiques welcomed.

That is adorable!!!  I love the little kimono.  I think a little simple black smiley would be very cute!

Thanks for your kind words. I might make another "peanut" doll with mouth and everything. I'm bad at making mouths.. So I should practice more.. haha.. and tips for sewing mouths?

Yes!  Sew with a full strand of embroidery floss (6 individual strands) and make it small to look like the traditional Japanese-inspired amigurumi.  Look at this to see what I mean----I love the way she does mouths and I think she just make a kind of "V" on the small ones and it looks curved because of the bumpy nature of the crocheted material underneath.  On some of her dolls she makes them a little bigger (that is if the doll itself is bigger).  Good luck!  I love your doll with or without!
