kewpie dolls

My new kawaii obsession, Kewpie dolls, I think its because they look like my daughter. I ordered a bunch on etsy. The first set came in the mail from earthgatherings . Too cute, I am going to make little outfits for them. They are about 4 inches tall. Love them. I wanted to make the Little outfits then sell them, but I like them too much. We will see.

More owls

I made more kawaii baby snow owls, there seemed to be a lot of interest in them, and besides that they are fun to make. Especially their little hats. The top hats are the cutest.
I started by making their hats before I even made the owls. I enjoyed working in miniature.
The hats took a while to make, I looked at a couple of Japanese craft books for reference, then invented my own take on them. They are made of felt, and cotton cloth.
Here are a couple of the finished owlets.

My first etsy sale...Yahoo!

I am so excited I made my first sale on etsy, funny thing is I just posted the item last night.

I did not even get to post her here yet.
Well here she is my kawaii sleepy snow owlet. She is made from a super soft fleece, her features are all hand embroidered, and her bow is made of red felt and also hand embroidered with the blanket stitch. The idea for her came to me while I was trying to sleep. there are just so many owls out there right now I wanted a different look. So I hope I achieved that.
She was really fun to make and I will be making more.
