You will then be able to save this step-by-step illustrated instructional for creating a memorable, culturally inspired, and treasured Christmas Cuddle Kokeshi ornament. Traditionally the tiny green mejiro can be seen among the cherry blossoms, in Japan's early spring. The large white rims around their eyes make them all the cuter! But on this adorable Cuddle Kokeshi, the tiny mejiro can be spotted nestled on a holly brand. The finished ornament will measure 5 inches tall and 2.75 inches in total width.
Included are 7 pages of illustrations, detailed directions, my personal source for purchasing quality 100% merino wool felt, pattern pieces, and a bonus page at the end for Tips and Extra Thoughts.
- the basics: needle, computer printer, small scissors, a few pins (optional)
