I've had a good look at the doll itself and I think it's going to end up being about 14 inches tall - at least! 0_o

Maybe too big for the xmas tree lol

Thanks! Cheesy

I'm actually surprised at just how much I enjoyed it. Problem now is that I have SO many projects I want to do...a yukata for each of my three girls, then I saw the hoodie tut someone did and want to make them one each, I'm making a Scottish Piper doll for my sis for xmas and might even end up making my mum a santa claus one too...

I'm surprised how addictive it is, especially since before this I could barely stitch a button on (well, I can cross-stitch and do blackwork but that was all) lol

The doll itself will probably end up being about 12 inches tall so it doesn't have to be eeny-meeny teeny-tiny bagpipes. That makes it a little bit easier, I guess.

Wooden dowelling might work, and I can always "add" the detail to it using bits of balsa wood then paint them...hmm...

I think it might be a bit of a "try it and see" time. Luckily I've only just started stitching the doll so I have enough time to figure it all out.

Thanks for the help, guys, very much appreciated. Cheesy

I know it sounds a little bit weird but I'm making a Scottish Piper doll for my sister as she loves all things Scottish and has nothing to put on the top of her xmas tree (or so she reckons).

The problem isn't the bag itself, it's the pipes. I have NO idea what I can make them out of. I've put a pic or two up here but I was thinking maybe a paintbrush handle with clay round it. Only problem would then be the weight of them... 

Any ideas, O Crafty Peeps? Huh

Thanks Seraphina. I'm still confused as to whether it was a good thing or not. Mind you, she didn't care because SHE knew it had been made by me. Cheesy

My daughter requested this for the Book Character Day at school. Bearing in mind I have NO sewing experience (well, unless sewing a button on counts), it was a bit of a...challenge, shall we say.

I so need to take more piccies next time...

Having an addiction to Bleach anyway (it's a Japanese anime series btw, I don't habitually sniff the stuff lol), I know vaguely what the shinigami outfit consisted of. The only bits I knew I couldn't make were the black hakama (trousers) since they are really complicated so I ended up buying those from eBay (4 including postage, bargain!).

The white keikogi, the black keikogi (the two tops), the sandals (known as waraji...and it took me AGES to find that out) and the sword (zan-paktu) were all made from scratch, as were the white panels under the black hakama (I didn't have time to make white hakama to go underneath them).

I kind of made the pattern up as I went along for the keikogi but it worked so well I might even end up doing a tut at one point. Feel free to comment, I'll be making another thread for my other daughter's costume, which was Boudicca.

Reference pic, this is Rukia Kuchiki.

The white keikogi:

The sword (called a zan-paktu in the anime):

The waraji (from an old grotty pair of sandals):

Oh, ignore the socks LOL

And one very chuffed daughter:

She didn't win because they thought I'd bought it. I don't know whether to be insulted or complimented. Cheesy

That looks amazing, thanks! Cheesy

Why do they always look better when a cute kid is wearing them?
