The Japanese Kimono Doll pattern and tutorial will show you how to make a beautiful, little doll wearing a traditional kimono. Kumiko is quiet but very friendly, always wearing a sweet smile and understanding look on her face.
This doll makes for a lovely friendship gift, desk accessory, or décor in the home. The pattern’s base is highly customizable. Changing the colors and color variation can create a completely different look! Some other ideas to make this doll your own include embroidering designs on the kimono dress and sleeves, adding buttons, attaching beads, and even adding new hair accessories or bows. Don’t be afraid to let your creative side loose!
