Hinamatsuri Dolls

When my Japanese friend visited in September she had some parties to celebrate her Japanese culture. At one of these parties we made Hinamatsuri dolls. Hinamatsuri is celebration for girls where they put out a display of their dolls. These dolls are handed down from generation to generation, and the real thing can be quite expensive. We made a prince and princess.

We had so many people at the party, we could only make one of the set. So finally today, I got around to writing up some instructions and pattern for future use and making the princess. Not too bad. : )
