So, here is the pair of poppets I made for my church's fund-raising auction, finally. I wanted to keep them simple and cute since I don't know who will take them home, so, no eyelashes or really funky hair. I just used the fabulous easy-peasy dress instructions for their clothes. (Their thread is here: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=276266.0 )

Here they are before hair:


And, the 'after' picture:


Thanks for looking!

My church has a fund-raising auction every year, and they ask parishioners to donate items. I figured, what the heck! I can make something that people would pay money for, and I was really on a poppet-kick.  Grin  (Join the poppet-along here: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=205341.7890 )

So, here is the pair of poppets I made for the occasion. I wanted to keep them simple and cute since I don't know who will take them home, so, no eyelashes or really funky hair. The dresses are from scraps of fabric leftover from making purses.  Wink I just used the fabulous easy-peasy dress instructions. Funny sidenote about the eyes: the green eyes started out light blue. When I glued on the eyelids, and wrapped the fabric around the back, the yellow fabric showed through. So, the eyes were part blue and part green...I just glued a little more fabric to the back of the eyes and made them all green...with a cool texture.  Cheesy

Here they are before hair:

Thanks for looking!

EDIT (11/03/08): The pictures don't really show the true color of their hair  Tongue, probably because of the direct sunlight... the dark hair is a very neutral brown and the light hair is a really light blonde.

Blossom- Deema looks so cozy and stylish in her cape! Awesome work!

For my niece's birthday, I whipped up a quick and easy infinity dress for her poppet, Mei (dress worn by another poppet - Mei is plum with hot pink hair). It's a light pink cotton jersey knit with an elastic waistband. My niece loved it, and promptly asked me to change Mei into her new dress!   Cheesy (She's only 3 y.o., and not quite able to tie the dress herself.)




Thanks for looking!  Cheesy

You did a wonderful job dressing up that wall hanging. Love your choice of beads and colors  Grin  I think that mirror at the center really sets it off. Can't wait to see the others!  Cheesy

 Cheesy I was in Jo-Ann's (Grand Rapids, MI) a couple weeks ago and almost lost my mind...they had 49 varieties of Alova (prints, patterns, solids...)!!! But, no colors close to a natural skin-tone.  Sad  That's what I was looking for, even though I'm not planning on making another poppet for a while.

side-note: I almost have the clothes for my pair of poppets done...almost. Then I can post.

Since I'm making my costume anyway (as always), I might as well enter it.  Smiley
It's nothing too fancy, but it fits the theme of the evening  Cool - I'm going to a concert at a club on Halloween, and the band always packs the place, and I usually get drinks spilled on me.  Undecided Not ruining another awesome costume this year...I've had 2 (almost 3!) costumes ruined by beer spills or cigarette burns.

I can't wait to see everyone else's costumes! I love Halloween!  Cheesy
This should be a yearly challenge, I agree. Halloween is almost a ritualistic offering to the gods of craftiness and creativity Cheesy

Thank you for posting a tutorial for your technique!  Cheesy This is probably the coolest thing I've seen done to a book! I can't wait until the next trip to the hardware store - I'm getting myself some foil tape.  Cheesy

As always, you amaze me, Craftewoman! I love all of the little details...her knees, her petticoat and knickers especially. She is just too cute!  Cheesy  Everyone should have a fairy Godmother as kindly-looking as her.

Your tiny bears are the cutest things I've ever seen! I love how each has a unique expression.
