My Creative Space - Kokeshi Brooches

I'm working on Kokeshi brooches today.

Firstly, I paint their hair and faces....


Then their "kimonos" are prepared, all tiny pieces of fabric taken from vintage kimonos. 


I even love the little scraps that come from trimming the kimonos.



I've been saving them and popping them in clear Christmas baubles, an idea I nicked from Kootoyoo a while back.


To see what other creative types have been up to this week, make yourself a cuppa and drop by here.
