I have been planning this tutorial for a long time now, but never got to it due to time constrains and such. However, I will be pretty free this month and that would only mean more fun tutorials and DIY projects. Gleeeee!
So fluffeteers, we will be doing a series of doll making for the next 2 weeks or so, and I am naming this project, Doll Diaries. As you probably know, I am a sucker for stories and decided to make this little series of mine somewhat story like.
Doll Diaries : Chapter One, Making a Felt Doll
|Meet Hikari , The Felt Doll|
this magic stitch to sew around the legs when you are closing up the plush with blanket stitches.
Hikari (Japanese) holds the meaning of Light when translated to English. I named her Hikari as she is a Mori Girl inspired doll who loves being around living things, nature and lives in a cute cottage in the woods. Hikari loves sewing, painting and collecting wild flowers to decorate her petite looking dining table. She has a pet rabbit named Momo and little birdies named Flora and Fauna who visit her cottage every morning for bread crumbs.
P/S: I made this for a very inspiring friend of mine, Van from Yuki no Kokoro. I hope she will like Hikari. and take good care of her.
I hope you enjoyed the video tutorial on how to make Hikari, the felt doll. Do send me pictures if you ever make this and don't forget to send me costume requests! Template can be found below. I uploaded it on dropbox for the original scale of the doll. Have fun and good luck fluffies!
