This year for 雛祭り Hina Matsuri (Girl's Day)I was able to complete two little Japanese girl Kokeshi dolls, huzzah! I actually had all the parts made for them from about a year ago but I didn't put them together until just now. I was originally going to decorate their kimono with sakura (cherry blossoms) but I ended up decorating their hair so much I thought it might be too much. So they just have fancy hair! It was the first time in a long time I used beading in my amigurumi, and I think it turned out quite nice :) These girls will be in my etsy soon... probably tomorrow! For those of you who don't know, Girl's Day is March 3rd and is celebrated in Japan, Korea, and even here in Hawai`i; on this day little girls usually get special dolls, new clothes, and sweets. Happy Girl's Day friends!
