Custom order

These days, I was quite busy for a custom order.
She wanted more than ten items of my sold items, so I remembered how I made them and I made them again.
It was harder than to make a new item, because I usually don't make a pattern...

At first, I felt that I should make the one similar to the sold item.
But gradually, I began to want to make a new one. So I put some new fabrics or new ideas on them.
In such case, I made two or more patterns so she could choose one.

Yesterday, finally she decided what she got and I finished working for this order.
Fortunately, she liked all of what I made for her (* v *)!!!!

It's hard for me to make the same item what I finished before, but when I finished this order, I was really satisfied with them all.
(But I want to make new items more!!)

Now I have three more requests...
I'll work on them making new items together.

P.S.
If you want some sold items from my shop, please ask me without hesitation. I'm happy to make something for someone who likes my work. (* v *)!!!!!

Thank you so much for posting the tutorials on the "bobo" dolls. My 7th grade neice had an assignment to make japanese crafts for a worlds fair at school and she, her mother and I sat down and made 40 of them. Not only were they a BIG hit with the students but gave us great time to visit and enjoy each other. thanks again.

Dear Mairuru,

I love your takoyaki. Since it is also one of my favour food. I can eat many of them a day. :D They are lovely. Please keep making nice and new items :D

I also like to make craft and little items myself. But I am more interested in sweets. But your dolls are very kawaii.

XOXO
