She is my daughter, Aisha's latest creation. Made from felt, with lots of love and entirely hand stitched.
Cute butt eh? And that teeny tiny tail cracks me up ahahaha....
Pao came from this book :
I bought this for Aisha at Kinokuniya. She loves Japanese felt craft books but not too keen with all the Japs characters so when she saw this one in English she was hooked and I just can't object. It's quite pricey at RM61++ but I want to encourage her to sew and nurture her creativity.
Wanna see how Pao actually looks like in the book?
Notice how Aisha changed her up a little? Ditch the red cap, stitch on the eyes, brighter mix of colors? That's what I try to encourage her, don't be too confined to what you see in the book, feel free to use your imagination and available resources. Her hand sewing is still rough around the edges, but I could see that it is slowly improving. The most important thing is she is proud of her creation and now creating more felt friends for her friends at school and also for her beloved aunt who's still in the hospital.
The girls are smitten with Pao and I think lil Hanan loves her more than Aisha! lol...
