1  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / My First and Last Poppet on: May 11, 2008 03:27:31 AM
Actually... this is my first and second (latest) Poppet. I'm taking a break cause there's only so many times I can jab myself with needles. Thank you Ghilie for this pattern, I'm now among the poppet obsessed. I made my my first poppet out of fleece, the only problem I had was with with the tail, but I think fleece make the cutest noses. She was quite popular when I took her to Scarborough with me.

I told everyone she was a newborn house elf. On the way home I took her to Michael's to find her hair. Nothing at home suited her.
Here she is with hair and her cousin I' made for Mother's day. For the bunny I made the eyes recessed by tying string around the eye.

I tried making a the Easy Peasy poppet Dress, but I can't get it to print at the right scale. I just bought the knit dress for the bunny.
2  FIBER ARTS / Weaving: Completed Projects / Straw-weaved eyemasks on: April 22, 2008 08:01:37 PM
I just started a new job working 3rd shift so I needed new eyemasks. All the store bought ones are too tight so I bought a straw weaver and some nice chunky yarn and made my own. The bridge is a solid strand and then the 'eye flaps' were done separately. I found that starting in the middle was the easiest and nicest looking way.

I let the ends dangle on my first one. The bridge on the nose is a bit odd.


On my second one the bridge is made of two strands and the ends are weaved back into it. It's the most comfortable as it puts pressure on my brow rather than on my eyes.
