Washi Doll Hanging

This doll was made from a kit I was given from an Asian store. She is the first flat style washi doll I’ve made, that is complete. I don’t like how the kit tells you to make the doll, she turned out really thick, and the glue didn’t want to work towards the end. She turned out really cute though. She is pretty and cheerful.

Fall Washi Doll

I wanted to make a washi doll inspired by Fall. The leaves out here where I live are so beautiful and golden. So I wanted to make a doll that reflected this great time of year. I tried making her a japanese style vest but it didn’t turn out. I think she turned out very pretty though. In her hand she is holding golden ginkgo leaves.

Mini Washi Doll

I am so happy with this doll. She feels like the first real washi doll I’ve made. She is actually from the only English book I have on washi dolls.  She has a marumage hairstyle which is what married women wore. She has both a plain comb and hairpin. Her kimono has the design of maple leaves. She is wearing a taiko or drum style obi. I added a thin gold cord round her obi.  She is the biggest doll I’ve ever made. I like her quite a bit, and she is going out on display.

Happy Girl’s Day

This washi doll is in honor of Girl’s Day. I know that she isn’t an actual hina doll, the holiday kind of snuck up on me to make a hina set. She is however what I imagine a girl would look like to celbrate Girl’s Day. She’s wearing a pretty kimono, has her fan and hair kanzashi. She turned out a little wider than I wanted but I’m still learning how to make washi dolls. It isn’t always that easy when the books are in a language I can’t read. Hope you have a great Girl’s Day!

More Bookmarks

Yes, I made more washi bookmarks. The one I had been using for awhile has gotten a little worn out. I made two of them because I couldn’t choose between the two kimono papers. One is in a more traditional blue and white and the second is in a pale green. You can’t see it but the pale green one has bunnies on it.
