Creating Pretend Bagpipes

  • Obtain a piece of plaid fabric. Cut a circle out of the fabric. The width of the circle can be 36 inches or more, depending upon how large you would like their bag to measure. Stitch with needle and thread around the perimeter of the circle and draw it almost closed. Add the fiber fill into the bag but leave a two-inch-long opening at the top of the bag.

  • Stitch with needle and thread around the perimeter of the circle and draw it almost closed. Add the fiber fill into the bag but leave a two-inch-long opening at the top of the bag.

  • Paint the cardboard tubes the desired color and let dry. Using the hot-glue gun, glue the tubes into the opening on the bag.

  • Take the two thread ends and close up the opening so that the cardboard tubes are enclosed and sturdy in the bag.

  • Finally, attach a rope on the top and bottom of the bag. This can be done either with hot glue or by using a needle and thread. Make sure that the length of the rope accomodates the individual child who will be wearing the bagpipes.
