This is a space created by me, Sachiyo Ishii, designer and craft writer.

I took up doll making and knitting in my thirties after my second son was born, and have been involved in a variety of craft ever since. I knit and crochet, dry felt and wet felt. I make Waldorf dolls and toys, hand dye wool and spin yarn. I also do Japanese paper craft and doll making.

Here, you get to see some of my creations and have a go at making your own. This space is linked to my Etsy and Ravelry shops where you can purchase my original patterns and finished items. I hope you will enjoy my site.

If you have any questions, feel free to get in touch with me any time.
