Cheap Compact BJD Carrier Tutorial by Sarablack10 Cheap Compact BJD Carrier Tutorial by Sarablack10
Here's my tutorial for how I made my super compact, super cheap MSD carrier for under 10 bucks.

Gonna be honest, I thank Raesha (from DoA) 100 times for this idea. Her original post [link] shows that wine gift boxes/carriers are perfect for 27 cm dolls.

I travel a ton on planes, so I need a very compact but very protective carrying case, and the official ones online don't cut it (too soft). Violin/coffin cases are too big and bulky for traveling, too. I looked into getting a 5-8" diameter PVC pipe and cutting it down and adding two end caps, but that was both impossible to do in a dorm, and expensive (caps of that diameter can be $10+ each, plus $30 for the pipe, which is really hard to find anyways).

So I opted to just go the wine carrier way. Since my MSD is too tall for just one wine carrier, I bought two. They're quite sturdy! And they both have caps. I got mine at JoAnn Fabrics for about 2.99 each (40% off).

You're welcome! If you'd like it to be more of an over-the-shoulder carrier, it is very easy to use very strong glue and a strap to make it official! :3

You know this would be a great carrier for colored pencils or graphite pencils with slight thin padding inside of some sort.
Thanks
