Since I'm planning and shopping for a Winter Soldier/Bucky Barnes poppet, does anyone have suggestions for silver cloth for the arm?  Huh I was looking at some silver Spandex, then being careful during stuffing to keep both arms the same size.

Tips on that and anything else on him would be appreciated!

I found some silver upholstery microsuede on eBay. You could use that.

I have a question, I am new to making poppets and I see a lot of them are able to stand up, how do you get them to do that? I have tried pipe cleaners but they only seem to work for making fingers, but they will not make my doll stand up.

You have to try to balance the stuffing. Also, you have to play with them a bit to get them to stand.

Thank you, I will try that out. I am using large chenille (pipecleaner) right now, they seem to work like a bone structure but I will try the stuffing idea.

I have made two poppet dolls and both times the legs/joints look funny. First doll was all hippy, I thought it was because I used joints that were to small. So second try I used bigger joints (the disk/peg joints like with teddy bears). And now the legs are bowlegged and look funny. I cannot find a video or a clear picture tutorial of this doll. I am in love with it but cannot seem to get it right ugg. Can anyone shed some light on this? I am using the "My Pretty Poppet" doll pattern.

See Link to Photobucket Album for my issue (can't post pics yet):

Hi "Mick_Mack"  I think stuffing it to much makes the doll too hippy & not enough isn't good either. Like "FreakieGeekie" said you have to balance them. Maybe try to put a long needle through the leg then the body & then the other leg then try to stand the doll up if she is stiil crooked take the needle out & reposition it & try again.  When she stands by herself then you have it. Mark where the needle is on all places & take out, it should work!  Hope that helps!

I will play around with it, I just thought maybe I used the joints in the wrong place and it made her knock-kneed. I am not to worried about them standing on their own anymore I just want the legs to not look funny. And eyelides are my next challange, any suggestions (tutorials) on how to do the eyelides?

I'm not sure if there are any tutoials on eyelids, maybe on the first page of
 this thread. I just take a peice of fabric cut the size of the eye & a little bit more & I tuck it behind the eye. I do put alittle glue on it & tuck it with a cuticle stick untill it's tuck in. If you want lashes put them on under the lid. It just takes practice with the eyes & lids & everyone does it a little different!
