wow~ awesome storm trooper! what alot of work.can't wait to see more pictures. DizzerSpinninRound--love the lolita look, i think she would look fantastic in black. i have a question. a friend gave me four dress jackets that are made with 70% wool,20% nylon and 10% cashmere. have anybody used this type of fabric. just wondering if it would be okay for poppets before i start cutting up the jackets. they're very pretty colors including light blue and rose pink. thanks for any info.

I traced a quarter and cut that in half, then added about 1/8th of an inch around for seam allowance. And did some angling on the bottom I think. I have quarters stashed all over my craft room becasue 90% of the time when I need a shape it's a circle that size.

I have the pattern I can scan it for you if you like.

Still a long way to go. I have to get grocieries today so that will put him on hole till after lunch. I plan to go get them after eating breakfast (which I'm doing now)

In hindsight I wish I'd used foam sheets for armor instead of felt. That would have created the stiffer shiny look I was going for and could have just been drawn on for the details.... But perhaps if I ever do another one I'll do that for it.

Thanks for the comments everyone! I really appreciate it! and totally needed it. Hubby's been very supportive but he's not really giving me the boost I need!

I would like a pattern because my attempts were such failures and I'm going to be hosting a poppet swap starting next week and if my partner wants a human poppet, I want her to have proper ears!

I didn't forget your ear pattern dizzy! I have been madly scrambling to get mr trooper finished. And I made it! I took tons of pictures and will be giving him his own post later. Probably tomorrow.

I was educated that he is An Arc/k(sp?) Trooper leader/commander. Not a clone or storm trooper like I'd thought. His "man skirt" is actually a Kama, or belt spat. And I can't remember what the tops thingie Is called.

I did get the helmet to work after the third try. It was the only thing that really gave me fits. Anywho more later! We're about to leave for the party that I made him in time for! *happy dance*

Oo, I'm looking forward to seeing the pictures of him completed, Eliah!

I've been working on my poppet off and on over the past few weeks and am amazed at how easily it's coming together! I just have to finish needlesculpting her paws and then finally to the dreaded jointing and adding hair (*scared*).

But she has a face! Wooo!



I'm pretty proud of how she's turning out...considering I'm such a noobie sewer and all  Grin
