I love this so much! I read some of Terry Pratchett several years ago and will never forget Rincewind. My husband has pretty much read all of his books and we got to see him talk a couple of years ago. Thanks for sharing your unique doll!

Omiyage might be a good choice. Or something like it. http://www.amazon.com/Omiyage-Handmade-Fabric-Japanese-Tradition/dp/0809229099

Wow, how beautiful! I love the pattern you created and the shape of the skirt is beautiful. And the color combinations are very unique. You can always wear it as a costume or a ball gown.

I made two very similar skirts and a top just last year. A little tiring to sew but well worth it. My method of construction evolved: I started out accordion-folding ~4 inch strips of fabric then cutting out triangles. Once you unfolded it, there was the long strip with the jagged edge! But it created too many small triangles that I have been struggling to find uses for. Then I realized I could fold ~6 inch strips and use my rotary cutter in a large zig-zag pattern so I would end up with two strips and no scrap. I then added the strips to an old skirt and top. I can see how using scraps would get difficult since you may not have long strips to work with. And the size can range dramatically. No need to finish the edges, especially if going for the faerie look. I intend on making many more of these items. I am currently working on a purple one for my mother-in-law!

I absolutely love it! The colors go well together, too. Even if the fabric was sucky to work with, it looks like you will be happy to feed the little monster all your purse goodies!

Love the disco ball!  That is beautiful.  A paper cutter (you know, the ones in offices) work great for cutting up CDs.  Sometimes they shatter and then you can get smaller pieces for filling in gaps.

I know that mustard seed makes a good bean bag filler.  Not sure if it would work for poi.
Just an idea!
I've been told to use bean bag poi. Any Ideas for making a set of those?
