no progress on poppet, i lost some of my fabric, but i found this weird fleece (it IS fleece)
that has no stretch AT ALL one way and a bit the other way. So very un-fleece-like

lol, that's a good poppet fleece then.  Wink
i bought some for my totoro hat and giant plush, and have a bunch left over, but  may use it for the challenge, we'll see.

moriko_kitsune it does stink when you put hard work into something just to have it not appreciated. I find myself being selective about who gets the things that I made. I wish I was not like that but I hate to see something I worked hard on taken for granted or even worse not taken care of at all. I crocheted a doll for my niece and a matching one for my daughter a while ago and my daughter ignored if (she was only 2 at the time) but now she plays with it quite frequently. so maybe your niece will appreciate it later when she looks back and realizes the hard work you put into it. Also love your poppet he is adorable great work.

I'm going to loose my mind if I don't find skin toned poppet skin Angry I'm opening up sign ups for the poppet swap, and I have been looking for poppet skin ever since I started the idea for this swap (back in fall of last year). I found a black velour that I will be using for my panther family, but for other people I need skin tones Undecided Can you believe the Joanns nearby doesn't have *any* seude??? I mean, really Tongue

you COULD bleach the dye out of the black and then dye it with Rit dye, but it might not bleach evenly, or take the dye to well.

If anyone is interested, I just opened sign ups for a poppet swap http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=335708.0

I think that with the fabric I have, the bleach would take off the velour.

i've used sweatshirt material for poppets and have had pretty good success. you might be able to find the skin tones you are looking for.

hi  Smiley  i 'm working on my first poppet(made a few mistakes like sewing the tail on backwards so when i turned the body the tail was on the inside~ Tongue ) and i'm at the point where i need to sculpt the toes and fingers. just wondering what is the best thread to use? the thread that i sewed the poppet with or embroidery thread? also do i add the eyelashes and lids on before i attach them to the head? i can't wait to finish her even though jointing sounds like it'll be hard and the head and hair scares me Embarrassed making this poppet is so fun even when mistakes happen. i would love to join a poppet swap later on when i make a few more then i'll know that i'll be able to make a good poppet to swap. thanks for any info.  Smiley

I like to use embroider floss in the fabric color for sculpting the fingers and toes. It seems stronger and blends in well.
As for eyes I like to stick the lids on before I put them into the head and then add the lashes when I'm done fiddling with the poppet so they don't get ruined. They are easy to add with a pin and some glue.
Use the pic tute that the link is for on the first page. I found it so super helpful when I first started jointing.

AlwaysInspired~ thanks for all the help. this has been so fun, now my 13 year old daughter wants to sew one too. it's great to be able to do something with her that she likes, it's so hard to get teens to do anything with there parents it seems.a great mother and daughter project!  Smiley
