Faceless bunka pin is a little weird to look at, isn't it?
Originally I was going to make a wrist strap phone strap with blue, but with the scallops causing it to curve so much, I thought it could work well as a trim or something instead. Somehow I ended up with a bonnet and started sewing up a white circle to make a face. Hair, pearls, bows later and I ended up with this.
Painted the face on the following day, since I needed time to think about what kind of eyes to put on her. I was too lazy to mix colors so I just used the red and purple I already had.
Accidentally got some red under her mouth...
Since she turned out so well, I wanted to make more!
This time I painted the face on first! Figured this way I wouldn't mess up.
Didn't mix colors for her eyes, but I did make a lighter more peachy color for her lips. I was thinking mermaid for her colors.
I left a bit of yarn out, thinking a loose flyaway hair could look cute.
Tried to get a sort of sand dollar shape with the bonnet.
Not sure how mermaidy she turned out, but I really like the colors together! I was going to stick some little shells on her too, but all the ones I had were long spiral and not the more snail like kind.
I really like making these, so expect to see more!
