Alright, I made my first poppet. My four year old claimed her before I even had the pattern, so without further ado, I present Thalia. This was a lot of fun, and I anticipate that once my cousin's kids see them I will end up having to make a few more.
ghilie thanks for sharing your pattern!!
She has a ladybug pal on her shoulder, at the request of my daughter. I made Thalia from sparkly purple fabric that was leftover from Faith's bedroom- before it became pepto pink. The hair is yarn from a nemo blanket I made her 2 years ago. I actually didn't have button shanks or any eyes in the house, so I scrounged around and used what I had on hand. The next one I make will be for my almost 2 year old. He isn't happy his sister has one and he doesn't. Since I know his dad won't like the purple fabric for a boy, I'm going to be using my old DCUs to make him a manly poppet in boy friendly camo! Oh and she really likes going for rides on Faith's hotwheels!
