My First Bunka

My First Bunka
Originally uploaded by Reyney

Whenever I obsess over something, I always try to see if I can make it myself. A few years ago, I was obsessed with my pretty mohair sweaters! I taught myself how to crochet, and now I can crochet anything, with or without a pattern.

Now, I have been obsessed with Bunka dolls from Japan. They're really really hard to get here. So, this is the second doll I have made on my sewing machine.

I made her based on the traditional Japanese instructions. But, since the instructions were written in Japanese, I'm not sure if I followed them precisely.

Thank God for Fabri-Tac!

She's tooo lovely in my eyes. AND I am thrilled that I made her!

Oh, she is beautiful. You are a girl after my own heart! One of my mottos is, "I can do that! I truly believe I can do anything! If I see a craft I love or something I want to buy, I try to make it on my own. I admire the fact that you taught yourself how to crochet. So great. I had a wonderful week sewing. Hope you enjoyed your week off, too.
