Stitching: Kokeshi Doll

stitchery kokeshi doll softie

A while ago now I made a gorgeous kokeshi doll from a free pattern over at Melly and Me. Little Miss loved it but wanted hers in pink and purple. The end result was a very pretty softie!

I must find the original one so I can share that with you too.

This kind of project is great for taking with you somewhere. It is small and there are only a couple of threads to carry. I often use a ziplock sandwich bag to slip my fabric, threads and a small pair of scissors into my bag. Lately the project in my handbag is my Winter Stitching hexagons – you can catch a peek in this post.

Unfortunately it looks like the freebie link is no longer available. But Melly and Me have a similar softie pattern in their store for only $4 called Kokeshi Dollies or a whole kokeshi family for only $12. Otherwise they have similar doll in their book called Kaleidoscpoe.

  1. Very Cute!!! It’s always nice to have this kind of quick projects at hand. Your little one did well in her choice of colors. I remember this freebie from few years ago. Sublime Stitching also has 4 kokeshi dolls available either on PDF or printed pattern, very cute I have it!
