I want to make a Bunka doll....like this  http://www.flickr.com/photos/43302795@N00/319129057/

I cannot find any tute's online at all...the only one I did uncover was in Japanese and I'm not a good enough seamstress to work it out from pictures alone....I have looked and looked online too!

From what I can gather, they are made of some kind of stretchy fabric...the heads are gathered from fabric, stuffed and tied off...then painted with features.

Can anyone help me with a pattern or tute for a similar body? I LOVE these little dolls..they appeal to my love of kitsch!

I believe this is a similar doll. The pattern is free.

I was thinking of making one too, maybe we should both give it a try and compare notes! This artist http://tanpopo0118.deviantart.com/ on deviantART makes them, and gives a few pictures as a 'tutorial' - they are not a pattern but might help provide some tips. Good luck and looking forward to seeing your creations Smiley

Here's a good resource: http://shaomei2117.blog28.fc2.com/blog-category-5.html

I know this is an old thread, and I'd hate to bump it up...but while I was searching for bunka doll help, I remember coming across this.  So this is for any other crafter out there that may stumble upon this thread as I did. Cheesy

It seems that a bonnet and those big painted eyes are characterisitc of a Bunka doll. I guess you can use most any doll pattern and adapt it.
