my poppet has now her own post, where I put a picture of her new outfit: the top I altered a bit, with large sleeves and an elastic to hold the top close to her breastless self.

This is where you can see it

I am waiting 5 minutes more, to be sure my lil one is far asleep and I start the purple poppet !
5  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / my first poppet on: December 03, 2008 12:07:32 AM
I posted some pics of her in the craftalong but here she is with her new clothes.
She is a shy girl, and still is unnamed because she is a christmas gift for my 3 years old girl. I am sure she will have a name and a story to tell as soon as we come back from the christmas familly gathering.

Anyway, she wears some flare legs pants, a sleeveless coat and an empire top which I modified a bit: large sleeves and some elastic on the top, because she is a young one without breasts Smiley.... She seems to be rather shy, despite her wild hair. I braided teh front one in order to show her little face. I love the look of her face, she seems shy and curious. I am sure my lil one will loooove her...

Here is the star! The pics are dark because I had to wait for my girl to fall asleep to take them... not THAT easy!


she waves to say hello


she sits peacefully, even though she started to be fed up by the flash...


a last one, posing.

I still have to make her shoes or sleepers, and I have some other clothes cut to make... as well as her sister tween, but purple.... to be continued!

first the stick for the neck and now tips for clothing.... you are just awesome !!

When I cut the clothes, I thought it would be too narrow but as a good newbie, I decided to try anyway... I made some changes already and I am right now waiting for my lil one togo to bed to be done with the top... The peasant top was next on my list, as well as my poppet purple twin..... maybe an update later Wink

I wanted to thank you all so much. you are the nicest persons ever! And as I read the first posts on this thread, I have to agree: this is addictive !! I also found myself obsessed at first and now more peaceful, thinking about what I can make next. You made it easy, even for a newbie like me... And I even think about making 'real' clothes to my daughter, which just seemed impossible before I started. I only own a sewing machine for a couple a months, and I find it fun to just be adventurous and discover a whole world completely unknown by me before... So thank you ALL again. I am so happy tobe part of this adventure !!

oh, and I am not sorry to have made mistakes, I just learned a lot by making them. For once, I am not the teaching one but the learning one!

I truly looooooooved the dragon poppet.. It's so cute !!!

Here I worked hard while my lil one was sleeping ( and it's midnight now....)
But I am done!!

Well... for now...

here she is, all dressed (and she likes it better !)


empire top, flared legs pants and a coat without sleeves.
She was tired because I had a hard time getting her dressed so she sat...


The coat is completely lined witht he same fabric than her top, so it's reversible.
then she wanted to remove her coat to show you all her beautiful top:


I am going to make her another top ( but not tonight !!) with wider sleeves because this one is so tight ! My lil one won't be able to get her dressed! Maybe an update tomorrow!

Here she is, my first poppet!


Thank you so much Ghillie for this wonderful pattern. thanks to you, I will be able to offer my daughter a special gift, something made with love, expecially for her. We went through very bad times this year, and I wanted her to have something special for christmas... As I looked on the internet to find inspiration, I discovered the poppets and became obsessed by the idea of making one... A dream came true.

I was finishing her hair at school today and my fellow teachers couldn't believe I made it myself. It will be my daughter's, so she doesn't have a name yet. She's good at giving name and telling stories about her dolls and stuffies.  I didn't do the clay nose, and she sure has a LOT of hair... Both curled and straight... So do we, my lil one and I ! I will have to put something in her neck to allow her head to be straight because of the weight of the wig.
She sure isn't perfect, but I learned a lot making her. And I can't wait to start to make her sisters. But now, I want to make her some clothes and I started to  look through all the wonderful pattern craftwoman sent me.

Aaaaaaaaaaaargh!! The two fabric stores were closed... I'm not lucky!
Well, I know of one next to my parents, 1 hour drive away. We'll go there on saturday... I know I can find eyes there two, as well as a jointing needle, poly fill ... everything I need!! So I may buy far more material I need for one... this way I can make 2 or three ( what I want to !)... Argh, frustration is getting me real bad!!

I may as well start by making one of of woven fabric just the body and head, no eyes, no button joiting so i will be able to use it as a model to make clothes.... hm.... that may keep my frustration down....
