omg that first link in fan-freaking-tastic!
i still dislike that big headed plastic blythe doll thingy but some of the clothes are too cute.
I know I have a ton of patterns to try. Hopefully I'll get a second.
One more link for cute panties. It's in Spanish but great pictures

I am constantly amazed by the quality of work here and the kindness of everyone's sharing.
I spent hours yesterday looking at outfits that people had made for their Blythe type dolls. (I want you all to know I didn't even know these cute dolls existed until I read this thread. So it's all you fault LOL Grin) So since I do not own one I was thinking of poppet clothes.
While looking I came across some links I thought I'd share. The first one talks about using the pattern pieces on the instruction sheets to make patterns for dolls. I haven't tried it but thought it was neat.

Ghilie, where did you get this fantastic fabric?  I am so wanting some of that.




Oh I am so upset. I saw a ton of that fabric yesterday. Loved the feel but wasn't sure if I should get it because it looked like freckles. But now seeing it again it looks so cute. Must resist going back to fabric store... I got enough fabric to make a dozen or so poppets. I have several other projects to finish then I want to work on a Spiderwick poppet for an 11 year olds birthday.

Oh my gosh she is incredible. I love the cat eyes. They fit her so well. I think I have that yarn somewhere. I would have never seen it as hair until now. It is beautiful. Great job.

She is incredible and to think you made her for someone and aren't keeping her. Amazing!

I definitely think this is a great pattern.I have tried a couple dolls/stuffed animals and never had any success. But my poppet is looking wonderful. We have had a little bit of an eye problem. I bought eyes at Michaels and thought they would work. Cut out and sewed the head together fuzzy side out. Well the eyes were huge! They didn't look good at all. So my daughter begged me to finish. Now I just have to figure something out. So she has hair and my daughter put some ready made doll clothes on her and has been dragging her everywhere. The clothes don't fit great but it has helped me try to fit some patterns. I will try to get her away (she doesn't have a name yet) from my daughter and get a few pictures.

I know nothing about craft challenges.
I have actually done some Harry Potter inspired crafts but want to branch out.  I have always wanted to do something out of Redwall. Now that I have finished my first poppet I want to make one that is like a creature from Spiderwick.
I looked around and there have been a few swaps and things. They are great for inspiration.

Well I am totally inept at quoting.
So thanks to all for the advice. I will let you know how it goes and I'll post pictures of the finished product.
I actually have most of the day to myself!!! (that never happens being a home schooling mom) So after I clean a little Smiley I will be working on my poppet.

This is totally irrelevant, but it's cool to meet a homeschooler mom.  I'm in my 10th year of homeschooling as a sophomore in high school!!
How cool. My homeschool daughter is close to your age. She's 15 and a freshman. I have 3 girls but I only homeschool the oldest. She loves it but might be ready to try high school.

So I have had my poppet pattern for awhile and have finally got some suitable fabric (not my favorite color but I couldn't wait) and have started my first poppet Grin
SO I have a few quick questions.
ghilie when do you iron on the eyes? Before you stuff the head or after?
Did anyone ever successfully alter 18" American Girl Doll clothes patterns to fit the poppets? I have a ton of these I hope to use.
Again thank you so much ghilie. I have never been able to make a doll before and so far I have 2 complete legs and arms.  Smiley
