You might also try attaching the inner ear material with a little stick glue it will help to hold things in place while you sew.

Well... That takes a lot less steps than my method/ seems a heck of a lot easier! Wink I shall have to give that a go sometime! Cheesy

Ok I tried to do that but I used a different colour of the same material as my poppet and it bunched and frayed. I'll give in and try felt. Thanks Smiley You don't fold the felt edge down or anything? Just sew?

by its nature, felt doesn't fray.  materials that fray are wovens, which are much harder to work with in doll making than either knits or felt.

I wefted it. Which is my least fave part. But I saw a post on here using a homemade 'loom' and I tried that for wefting, and I love it!! I cannot believe how much thicker the wefts turned out!! That is how I will be doing it now on. I also glue them on. I wish I had the patience to sew, but I don't.

I am so glad this was helpful to you- I find the hair to be the hardest part- and this loom does the trick

I like a dork watch the quilting shows on the public TV station on Sunday afternoons that is usually when the husband takes his nap and the glue stick (yes the kind for paper) is how they do lots of their applique work just a little to hold the material still.

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

If I got any TV channels I'm pretty sure I'd be a dork like you Wink.
Thanks for the tip, that's incredibly handy info to have!

Ah! that's felt...

I never tried an inner ear color till my second one. I cut the inner ear piece to be the final size of the ear (leave off the seam allowance). I then pinned it to a finished ear and tucked the edge under and hand stitched as I went around. Came out ok -- I used a velour-like fabric ear and brushed poly-cotton knit (old baby blanket) inner ear.

Felt and glue stick sounds great! Maybe for the next poppet  Grin
