I wanted a dolly to make clothes for, because I am jealous of all you Blythe/Pullip owners. But I cant wrap my head around how much they cost!  So I said to myself: "Self, you are good at this big eye cutie pie kinda doll making, so why dontcha just make one?"  I said back to myself: "Self, that is a great idea!"  So Poppet was born.  Poppet is wearing a flannel nightshirt.  She's a Nekomimi, and she is based loosely on Runo's work.  The pattern is mine and not available on her website - I wanted a jointed doll with a neck stump.

Hi Poppet!


Here's a full photo - See the tail?  It's got a pipecleaner in it to make it poseable.  Never mind her head wrap - I am waiting for glue to dry.


Here's a closeup of her paw feet.  Her hands are paws too.


Here's a picture of her nekkid, headless body.  This is prior to tail attachment.  Next time I am just gonna sew the tail in when I do the back seam.  Yes indeedy, she has ladyparts, a belly button and a butt crack.  I can't seem to make a doll that doesn't have these things.


Here are some clothes I made her:


I have two aprons to make but I can't stop making clothes and looking at her!  Urg, I am captivated by her cuteness!

That's awesome!  Must.  Resist.  Urge.  I do not need anymore new projects until I finish a few!

Wait, where did those come from?  I swear I didn't go to the craft store, honest!

Let the baby crafting commence!  Cheesy

Wow! She's great! I love her Smiley You should make a hole in her lothes for the tail to go through xD

I know what you mean about too expensive -- I want a BJD (I'm surprised we only see Pullips and Blythes here.. I love the well proportioned dolls so much more...), but a few hundred dollars on a toy to dress up? I'd rather dress myself up Wink

I like penguins, stars, rainbows and blue.
If your project has any of these, don't be surprised to see me post in it! Cheesy

Is there any tiny, micro , smallest chance this doll can become a tutorial or a class project or something like that?! Roll Eyes Because she is just adorable! I have never tried to make a doll before, but I would give it a try for this one here! Wink

I was thinking about having some people who were novice to intermediate at dollmaking test the pattern.  I am not so good at the whole PDF file thing, so if you are interested, let me know.  It might take awhile for me to get the pattern and instructions written out though.
