21  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Craftalongs / Re: The Ongoing Poppet and Punkin-Along on: June 23, 2011 03:43:44 AM
I'm starting my poppet tonight, and I have a few questions. 1, where can I find eyes and buttons for the joints? Any good websites that sell them for cheap? There's no places close to here, and I don't have much money to go driving somewhere.  2, is it ok if my fabric is stretchy? Again, I have no money to buy new fabric at the moment, but I have some stretchy velvety stuff I could practice on.
I use http://www.suncatchereyes.net/ eyes and they are super cheap. In the city I can buy eyes for $6.50 a pair, where the website sells 1 set for less then $2. They are really nice and good quality and easy to use. I am trying to make a poppet right now with stretchy velvet. It's not as easy as the suede and I tried boobs, those didn't work at all, this doll will have to be flat. But it's not impossible, if you make exceptions. It's harder to stuff the body properly. If you over stuff you lose details, like wrists and stuff. Also I haven't tried to stuff the neck on mine yet, but I imagine if I try and make it really firm, it will also be really big. Also for the joints I use covered buttons. I buy them at Walmart and then use extra quilt cotton to cover them and the work really well.
Thanks a bunch!! I made the head last night, but scrapped it because he decided he wanted an aquiline nose and bat wing ears. I'll post a pic when I'm done.

I'm not a critique really, (read-high school student) but that is awesome! You did a real good job with it.

These were my first from-scratch cookies, and I am quite proud of them. I got the recipe from the magazine Family Circle, and I will type up the recipe if anyone really wants me to.

That's beautiful!! I *love* the little ruffly thing on the back racer-back thingy. I would so buy it if I saw it in a store. I'm sorry, but I can't help you with your form problem.
29  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / My turn at a ruffle skirt, multi-colorful on: April 30, 2011 05:43:47 PM
I was inspired to make one after I saw this post-http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=378238.0, and decided that I needed to make one. However, I wasn't going to spend 16+ dollars/yard on some ruffle fabric, so I put it on the back burner and went on to other things. Today, I found some ruffle fabric at Jo-Ann's for 5 dollars/yard, so I squealed (yes, I actually did) and bought it all. The waistband is funny, but I'm not fixing it (again). It was really easy to make, and only took me about 45 minutes. If I make another one, I'm going to put in a zipper, not the elastic. Without further ado, and apologies for my rambling, here is my (knee length) ruffle skirt:

This is fantabulous! I found some ruffle fabric at Jo-Ann's for 50% off, and I'm going to make this skirt right away.
