Kokeshi Felt Doll

As-salaamu'alaykum wa Rahmatu Llahi wa Barakatuhu

So lately I've been exploring Japanese crafts, etc. There is SOOOOO much out there, makes me think they are the most creative people around.

Here is my attempt at a kokeshi felt doll. They are traditionally made of wood...I'll try painting those one day. But right now just wanted to try this. It's also my first felt doll!! I had a blast making it.

I first just drew out the pattern I wanted, because I couldn't find any that fit my idea. Most felt dolls have a felt dress attached, I wanted mine separate. I think it turned out pretty good. It's only 6 inches tall.

I gifted it to my niece who was happy enough to receive it.

Most of it is done using a 'blanket stitch'. It's quite simple. You can youtube tutorials. This is one of the best pics I found.

Would lot to hear what others are working on? or if any of you have tried making a felt doll?

Qur'an Covers

As-salaamu'alaykum wa Rahmatu Llahi wa Barakatuhu

Yes I am back!! ...although I'm not promising anything this time!
I've actually managed to get lots of things done on my very long break. Including the Mural I started way back in 2012 (I think...lol). Will post pictures and a video soon!

This is my latest sewing project. Qur'an covers!! I usually make the Qur'an bag, but I'm digging how the covers turned out. Will hopefully make more to sell on in my etsy store.

This was done for a gift swap. Aishah had picked "fabric" from my list of items and so I made her this. She was happy with it, alhumduliLlah.

This one is made for a little boy (9 years old) the inside lining is a camo print. I still have to get it to the person who ordered it...so not sure if he digs it or not.

....they make great gifts!! guess what everyone is getting for Eid...lol.. :D
Happy creating everyone.
