Fake Bunka doll

I have made several Bunka dolls.
Strictly speaking, they are not Bunka dolls.



Bunka doll is traditional thing.
There is the orthodox way on Bunka doll making.
Genuine Bunka doll's body is hard. Its clothes and bonnet are sewed to the body.

My Bunka dolls are soft. They are, as it were, enlarged "mini doll".
I use irregular method. I must not open it to the public.

You are free to make one in your own way.
Bunka doll has a characteristic face.
Whatever doll that has such features may be called Bunka doll (in broad sense).

I've looked at other Bunka dolls, after seeing yours first, and I enjoy yours far more. I'm inspired to design and sew my own from yours, a nice soft doll sounds nice!

I am sorry for using slang in my earlier message, I would take care of it from now on.

You say you do not sew very well because you are self-taught. I think that you have taught yourself very well. Your dolls are wonderful! I want to make some for my granddaughter Thank you for sharing.
