I was wanting some opinions on a doll I have been asked to make.
I have been asked to make a pregnant & breastfeeding (able to give birth too) doll.
Would it be better to make a belly panel out of stretch material so it can give birth and then have a flat tummy or out of the normal suede and just reduce the stuffing in that area?
I think the rest of it would be pretty easy, as I plan to at least double the size of the regular pattern

I've got all my body parts scattered all over my desk. XD I wish my Joanns had had a better flesh color, but this color works for the character I'm making. He looks dirty, and that's just as well. Does anyone have any ideas on how to make a bowler hat for my poppet? And short hair? (I'm still hunting through this thread, but it's taking a while!!)
I am not sure about a bowler hat, but may be able to help with short hair.
There are a few ways you could do the hair.
I have done short (and spikey) hair before by just wefting short lengths of yarn and then attaching that.
You could make a wig/cap out of felt or fake fur
you could crochet a cap out of a fluffy yarn
you could glue on some fluffy stuff (there was a poppet with a receding hair line done like this, not too long ago)

With the hat, find someone who has done a ring master poppet as they should be able to give you general hints and tips on the hat making process.

goodluck with it

Using ghile's new pattern (the punkin pattern) I made the doormouse (from Alice in Wonderland - the new movie with Johnny Depp) minus the toothpick sword and monster eyeball. The new owner was really happy with her present.

Just gotta say, love the punkin pattern. So quick and easy to use.
Here is the doormouse from Alice in Wonderland.



He has his spoon ready for the mad hatters tea party (I left off the toothpick sword as I thought that was a bit dangerous for the child getting it)

thanks chattyKathi, they are really easy and there are others who have hand sewn them, or come into this as complete newbies to sewing and done a good job.

Very cute ginger poppet! Love the freckles, what did you use for them?

Thanks
I just used a fine tipped permanent marker, one of the felt tip types. It didn't run or bleed into the fabric so i was really happy with the result.

Here is my latest girl. There are a few small problems with her but she still looks good and is my 'special' doll. She is also a mini poppet (half sized)
