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


Ummm so what's wrong with her? Seriously, she's adowable"^.^" I do see your lack of nose structure there,but I think it works for her. I love her chubbiness! Oh my goodness, she's just too cute!!!

I am currently making my first Poppet and used a bead for the nose. I don't have any clay as well. I really love the way the bead looks as a nose under the fabric. Love your Poppet! Hope that helps a little.

thanks guys! Cassandra loves compliments Wink

Using a bead is a good idea! I must try and find some! And I also must try a pompom, I'm determined my next poppet shall have a nose! lol

For being hand sewn I can't believe how well your poppet came out! She's super cute! If I hand sewed it it would be like a zombie!  Cheesy

It looks like the craftster that received Bonnie is making good on her end of the swap. Thanks so much for support.  Wink

thanks always inspired! I tried really hard to make her really neat, in total she took me nearly ten hours (over an evening and the next morning, lots of sleep in between) to finish! I can't wait to get my hands on my next poppet, I'm stuck fixing my laptop instead of sewing  Sad

lol thanks. I'm unemployed at the mo, and so have little to do (single, no kids, only a dog...) and was going mad with boredom so I taught myself how to sew properly and how to use patterns!
I'm still learning, but I'm getting better Tongue

I want to add mine to all the pic's in this thread but i just can't seem to figure it out. Mine is hand sewn to, I mostly use scrap clothing for everything i do. I am in the middle of no where, where craft stores and thrift stores don't reach.. I guess maybe by the time i finish her i will figure it out.. I love making Poppets already!

ambee- I live in Ireland and in a small town so I know how you feel when it comes craft supplies! I cannot get eyes or alova suede anywhere >_<
I'm making do by using old clothes at the mo. My first two poppets were made out of my brother's old jumper and a few scraps I had left over, and the next poppet will be made from a thrifted skirt. The skirt should work better than the blue cotton stretch tee I had, I've tested stitches in it, and pulled them to test the strength it seems good enough to make it into a poppet! hurrah!  Tongue
