Leather Plague Doctor Doll by bezzalair Leather Plague Doctor Doll by bezzalair
This guy is up for sale: [link] SOLD!
He's a little pricey though. ^^; Mostly because of the leather and the wear and tare on my sewing machine. OH! and because I hurt myself making him quite a few times.
Sewing Leather broke my sewing machine needles quite often (mostly because I was using the wrong type of needles for leather. :roll: I figured it out later after researching about it.) and there were parts I had to sew the leather by hand, resulting the back-end of my needle up my fingernail.
After my experience with it, I've decided I hate sewing leather.

I made him a little notebook that was fun to put together and think of what I should write in it. xD

Anyway, if no one buys him, that's ok. I'll keep him all to myself. :)


Doll made by me, Caylee.
(Leather, various other materials, super sculpey clay, acrylic paint...)

Yeah I am, but I'm slacking terribly on them. I decided to make 10 all at once but I'm pretty sure it has been over a year by now since I've started the project. >__> I wanted a big break, but have just now pulled out my sewing table and started working on them again.

Thanks~
I'm making a few more of these doctor dolls if you're interested. I have like, a list of others who are interested to get one and want me to contact them when I'm finished making them. I could add you to the list of contacts if you'd like.

Oh this is so adorable! I can see why he got sold. ITS ADORABLE! :squee: I'd be a flamin liar if I said I didn't want one. Oh I wish I wasn't poor, I'd purchase or commission you to make one. I have my own 3D holdable plague doctor, but he's less cuddly because he's made out of legos(bionicles specificall). [link] <- if you're interested.

Also, would you mind if I asked you a few questions about making stuff for figures and small things like this? Matteo is supposed to have a messenger bag that's not lego and a coat. :) I was wondering how a person could break into making that kind of stuff. :)

Haha, thanks!
I'll be making more of these dolls eventually... when I get around to it. xD;

Nice looking plague doctor you made, btw. :)

Making a coat and messenger bag should be pretty easy to figure out. I'd start off by laying him down and design out a coat pattern for him. for the bag, you just need to draw out a rectangle and fold it in half (add a little extra for an over-flap) for the bag, give it a strap, and that should do it.
The materials you use for it is another story that you should probably look for yourself. I used leather for this doll, but I regret it because it was a pain in the butt to sew together.

Neato. Will they be made with leather or a different material?

Thank you. :) I'd love to get him made as a plushie, like yours, but I be poor. :(

Okay, thank you for that, but what I'm getting at is I know nothing about sewing. I don't have a sewing machine and even if I did, I wouldn't know how to operate it. It is a skill I'd like to pick up, because it has many many uses. My grandmother has a few sewing supplies, needles and thread basically. So how could a person go about picking up sewing and making small items like the messenger bag you made for your little PD? Then from there I'm guessing clothes would be the next step.

Well, you should probably go out shopping for the materials at a fabric store or something and choose what you'd probably like best. or go here and look around: www.fabric.com
Leather is a pain in the butt to sew, so I personally wouldn't advise that after sewing this guy together.

If you don't have a sewing machine, you'll have to sew by hand. If you have no clue how to start, look up internet tutorials on search engines.

I'll be making more again someday... not quite the same as this because after the experience of sewing leather, I hate it, but they will generally look similar to this.

That's another awesome thing, aside from the needle up your fingernail...that's not nice. You need a thimble *nods. Ah well, very nice job.

I did use a thimble! xDDDD
See, I was trying to shove the needle through the leather so bad, that it SLIPPED OFF my thimble and under the fingernail next to it. x___x *pets finger* poor baby.

and thank you! ^__^
