They do require some alterations still but I find it helps so much more to have something to start with. Also you cant follow the order of the instructions because sometimes you wont be able to sew something so small ie hem on shirt sleeves.

So many ideas so little time. Will I ever get them all done?

these are so cute! I'd love to try one. I saw that post that had the breasted pattern but it didn't really work for me.... i guess i couldn't figure out how the pieces went together. I just PMed Ghilie for the pattern but oh my gosh keep making them you guys! i love looking at them all!

fabric: alova suede, doe suede and butter suede are the best, but they have been made with cotton, fleece, old t-shirts, flannel, etc.  the recommended fabric is a firm poly knit with a one way stretch.  That way the edges dont fray, and the slight stretch gives it a little shape.

eyes: anywhere from 10mm to 20mm, 20mm gives you a big, anime look, 15-18mm is probably the most common.  button eyes have been used, also iron on eyes, embroidered eyes and painted eyes.

meters... Anne, are you in the UK?  The fabric is called something different in the UK, I can't quite remember what it's called.  Look for a poly knit that is soft and fuzzy on one side and smooth on the other.

Anne11- You can try felt as a practice material. I've seen some great felt poppets and felt is super cheap!
