Kokeshi Doll v3

(A type of Japanese doll)

DesignedMay 2019
Crease PatternYes

This model is an update of my Kokeshi Doll v2 model. That previous version had a large area of unused paper around the center of the square. This new version eliminates that unused area and improves the overall paper efficiency, making the model less bulky and more balanced. In addition, it is now possible to comfortably fold this model from small sheets of paper, such as the commonly found 6 inch (15 cm) size. The head and body are still formed in the same way and are located in similar places in the paper, but the collar and hair are neater now. I think this model looks particularly cute when folded from pretty patterned paper.
