How cute are these?! We couldn’t wait to get our hands on these Japanese sewing kits for felt wind-up dolls from Sun Felt. Wind these little guys up, and they wobble all around the place. The animals remind us of Russian nesting dolls (Matryoshka), and the tiny details on the fairy tale characters are so charming.
Each kit comes with all the bits and pieces you need to put one of these adorable dolls together, including the wobbling wind-up mechanism. Each piece of felt has already been cut to size and all the little details are there, so you just have to put it together. The only other supplies we used were a needle and some craft glue.
Note: Instructions for the Matryoshka animals come written in Japanese with detailed illustrations. We were able to put one together without being able to read the writing. We do have translated English instructions for the fairy tale character dolls.
Skill level: Intermediate. Some knowledge of embroidery and needlework is helpful.
