Description

This dog is my second toy for the Toy Society´s Christmas project… I am not sure what would this be used as, but i thought that would be nice for a hard working mom to find it and maybe use it to pin her needles :-)

I also made a Daruma san for a friend .. to bring him luck!

A few years ago, whilst i was in japan, there were elections. One of the candidates was holding a gigantic Daruma san whilst another one handed him a marker for him to paint black the one eye, that this doll has white.

I asked my husband about this, and he explaiend that people buy or make daruma san dolls to ask them a wish. When you ask for the wish, you paint an eye, when you are granted the wish , you paint the second one, and you burn the doll.
