Geisha have held a place in traditional Japanese life for centuries. Hosting tea ceremonies, entertaining and playing the Shamisen are among their skills. Their beauty is timeless. This pattern is to make a kneeling doll, with painted geisha make up and wig, plus the kimono and obi.
Edwina has been designing patterns for 12 years now. Her dolls have been featured in books: Patti Medaris Culea's Creative Cloth Explorations; The Best of Soft Dolls and Amimals; 500 Felted Objects and magazines: Soft Dolls and Animals magazine, Art Doll Quarterly, and Quilting Arts Magazine.
Edwina also specialises in needle felting and loves to share this skill with new fans.
