Cloud love

Now that the presents have been safely delivered to the recipients, I can now share this post!

Meet Aiko the kokeshi doll- a cute little crochet project that was made for a dear friend recently!

Aiko (or love in Japanese) was lots of fun to make! I’d been searching for a while for an appropriate pattern and when this one popped up on my search results, I knew that it would be the perfect gift for someone who loved Japan! Or dolls I hoped!

Aiko is a truly cool doll! She has a sparkly blue and green obi sash on her red kimono…

And matching blue petals, a little white fan and hair ties in her hair! Well a girl’s got to look good, don’t you think?

Here’s Aiko sitting snugly among the Japanese sweets and chocs that she was packed with!

But wait! There’s more! Along with Aiko was a little something that was whipped up with my precious sewing machine – this fluffy pillow in the shape of a cloud which has a friendly face on the front….

And a Thomas the train print on the back for a train loving fan!

Making this cloud pillow has inspired me to make one for Bugs! Only this time it will be much bigger!

Gift giving is all done for now! Hopefully this post made you smile! Have a great day folks!
