Tsum Tsum Dolls

Hi everyone, it’s been a while! It’s off to another week with another adventure! It’s that time to start thinking about what else can I make? There are so many projects that I want to create, but because I loose interest, or get too tired after a while I tend to stop half way. Hopefully as the weeks comes by I’ll get to finish off the rest of the remaining projects, and start new ones that can be as cute as can be!

Today’s project was the tsum tsum dolls from Disney/Sanrio. These little dolls are stack-able, and as you know they are pretty collectable and you probably have seen a lot of them around many toy stores. I decided to make my own Sanrio characters and have successfully created a few from the many characters from Sanrio. Maybe one day I’ll get to creating the whole list, but today’s not the day. Instead I made a few to test and I will say I’m quite happy with how they turned out!

While making these, if you use little sand bags, or even a weight bag it will sit better. For the ones that I made, I didn’t use any weight bags and it was still pretty good. However it’s up to you. If you would like it to be more sturdy pick between the two. These dolls aren’t too big, or too small, if you would like to make a bigger doll I would recommend making your round for the face bigger and then continuing the tube like body to the length that you would like. This pattern isn’t complicated and I would recommend that if you got some spare time this project would be a simple one to complete within the hour or so.

You can purchase these cuties in my shop!!
