Changeable Keiki Boy

Advertiser Staff and News Services

In time for holiday sewing comes the latest island style pattern from Dian K., "The Hawaiian Keiki Boy." A companion to the "Keiki Hula Girl" pattern, the little guy comes with interchangeable body parts and costumes. He can be transformed into a beach boy, hula dancer, or member of the Aloha Festivals Royal Court.

The figures can be sewn onto anything from a diaper bag to a wall hanging to a king-size quilt by adjusting the number of blocks and dimensions of the quilt squares. Or both figures can be appear in a single project. Dian K. patterns are available at shops including Homespun Harbor in 'Aiea and The Little Hawaiian Craft Shop in Waikiki.
