My first Sarubobo

This week I’ve found the blog of a Japanese crafter called Mai. She sews everything she makes by hand and is very creative. Her art is very subtle and beautiful.

She posted instructions on how to make Sarubobos, or Japanese dolls. She usually makes the tiny doll and adds it to different things, like purses, hair bands, bags, etc.

They are just ridiculously cute! Take a look at her blog: Mairuru. And check out her Etsy shop: Mairuru’s Etsy shop. She uses the cutest Japanese fabrics!

And take a look at what I know will be my first Sarubobo, as more little friends will follow. I just need to finish the closing of the belly better, probably using invisible/hidden stitch or something like that, because this first little guy looks like he just left the hospital after stomach surgery…
