Finally! I FINALLY made a Poppet! I know it has already been said, but this pattern is sooo much fun to make. My many many thanks to ghilie for being so generous with it. And not only to ghilie, but to all you wonderful Poppet makers that have supplied me with many hours of inspiration.
When I first started making her, I had no idea that she would end up being a belly dancer. I envisioned her with green or pink hair, and I thought I would make her a gardener. But, as with most of my dolls that I make, they have their own ideas. And Raksana was born. She is my inspiration to stick to one of my New Year's Goals which is to get back into belly dancing, oddly enough.
Anyway, without further ado...here she is.
Just look at her hips shimmy!
I also made her an anklet for her pretty little ankle.
And one of my favorite parts...I gave her butt dimples.
Sorry that the lighting isn't the greatest in the photos, but it is all gray and cloudy around these parts, and I was too excited to share her to wait for sunny days.
As always, thanks for looking and I would love to hear your thoughts!
