After making many mistakes on my first poppet, I tried again, with rather different results. I stuffed this one a thousand times firmer (I'm not really sure I like the super-firm stuffing, I like my stuffies to be a little...slumpy.) She's also got a bamboo skewer spine, her hair is heavy! Its a handspun yarn, and it is a lot redder in person, with bits of super red and some blue. I kind of forgot to sew her ears into the head seams, so her ears are sewed on in a C shape to the sides of the head using a ladder stitch. Her dress is the easy peasy dress, the only difference is that I lined both the skirt and bodice, the shiny fabric was too slippery to work with on a small scale. (though I managed to break my first needle ever sewing the bodice to the skirt!)
She has no name because she's going off to michigan to live with a good friend of mine, and I'm going to let my friend name her.
Also, I dont think I'll needle sculpt the fingers and toes...I kind of like how she looks without sculpting.
enough talk, more pictures!
