Wow, all I can say.

I just wanted to say "thanks", by the way, to you, lovesclutter, for emailing me that pattern a few days ago so I could make my poppet!  You were such a big help in answering my questions and getting back to me so quickly!  Your such a "doll"!!  Thanks!!  Grin Grin Grin

Just so you all know, I sent snazzlecraft the boobie parts. How did they come out? She is such a beauty.

lovesclutter: The boodies came out good.  I learned one thing though...bodysculpt the torso BEFORE adding the arms!  Her boobies ended up a little wompy because I pulled the thread sooo tight when I connected the arms to the torso.  It made it harder to sculpt the boobies with the arms on too.....I did manage to make them look pretty good though.  next time I will stuff the boobies a little tighter too AND sculpt them BEFORE I add the arms.  And I may not pull so tight on the thread when I connect the arms.  Live and learn.  Overall though I am super happy with the results and glad I stepped out of my "comfort zone" a little to make this beautiful poppet!!  There will certainly be many more to come!!

Yes, I sculpted the boobies first, and the arms came loose. SO you just have to do what works best. Cloned Bravo did one and it came out perfect. My last girl I did came out well too.

It is just so hard to believe that is your first. Your girl is amazing. Cool

ugh my blue poppet failed spectacularly!  Angry Material stretched, torso was too short, legs were different shapes, and the head looked like an alien's. I cut the material the wrong way, which is why it distorted when I sewed. I'm so mad right now. Seven hours work down the drain.
I'm going to start another one tomorrow, making a boy doll of a guy in a band I follow. Wish me luck! Sorry for the random rant Roll Eyes


Also, Snazzlecraft, your witch is amazing! Makes my two poppets look like something a two year old made.  Embarrassed

Don't feel bad. The poppet I made I stayed up too late and made TONS of errors that I had to end up redoing the next day once I had slept. One of the errors I made was sewing the leg with one side of the fur fabric on the inside. My poppet still has some errors to her, one ear is a little different somehow and placed a little lower than the other (but this is kind of a cute error), one foot is smaller than the other one because I was running out of material, and one of the screw in eyes I placed too far to the center of the face (which was annoying because I measured right, but didn't pay attention to my measurements when I placed the eye). I'm sure your next one will turn out great! It's all a learning experience Wink

I don't feel too upset about it today, I got better fabric from the thrift shop across the street from me, and I'm taking a bit of a breather (well,  half a day Tongue) from poppet-ing, so I can come at my next try with a fresh eye. I have to make Cassandra (second test poppet I made) a new dress as well, so that's more distraction lol.
What annoyed me most about my trashed poppet was that it was the best sewing I'd done so far, and it still didn't look right.  Roll Eyes
Thanks for listening, heh.

Just thought I'd add a pic or two  of Cassandra, just to see if anyone had any thoughts on how I can improve, I know her nose isn't that prominent, I have to figure a way of stuffing the nose, without using clay (mainly because I can't find any ;_;) She does have cute little cow ears though Cheesy

Love all the new poppets!

The Halloween witch is fabulous! Wonderful job!

Cassandra is a real cutie, too! I think she's cute as is, but if you want a more prominent nose without the use of clay, there's a few things to try. Did you pull off tiny bits of stuffing and shove them in there? And then make sure to stuff the heck out of the head. Maybe some small bits of plastic bag would help, too, instead of the regular stuffing? Think outside the box and try other stuff. I've used rice to stuff things before, but I'm not sure how well most of those things would stay in just the nose region. I'm sure someone will be along with better ideas shortly! Smiley
