Finally, I finished the fairy poppet! Well, more or less...her clothes are still pinned on. I hope to fix that soon, but I just couldn't wait any longer to post her. Her she is, and her name (of course) is...Violet!!
Face Paint Detial:
I tihnk she is the best one I have done yet! Thanks for looking!
I finally got my first poppet finished, and it took me a while because of having to work around the Christmas projects I was finishing! Of course, I could have just finished those first and then done the poppet, but who would want to do that?
Anyway, her name is Marlie (after Jacob Marley, because I was watching A Christmas Carol when I finished her body).
Just sitting around:
Bow in her hair:
I learned a lot doing this one, so hopefully the next will be without all the mistakes! My daughter, who laughed at me when I told her what I was making, is now begging for one, and even my husband likes her--he says she is "less freaky looking" than the Pullip dolls, and even cute. And as always, thanks for looking!!
It has been like a one-woman sweat shop around my house lately, and one of the things I just got done are these stockings. I actually did the cross stitching a couple of years ago, but this year I learned how to sew and finished them off!
They actually look better in real life, the picture quality went a little strange on them, maybe the lighting? But the fabric is not nearly so coarse or strange looking. Anyway, thanks for looking!
