Oh My Gosh!  I just found this thread. These guys are awesome!!!!!!  I so want to make one.
I have a couple of questions for you pro-poppeteers.
What level of sewing skills do you need to be able to make a poppet?  I have made little animals out of felt.
Is there anywhere that tells how to go about making one?  I don't have alot of computer time and you guys have lots and lots of pages on this thread. LOL
Thanks ahead of time to anyone who is willing to get me on track.

Go to the first page. There are helpful links. Also, to start, you have to pm Ghilie for the pattern and instructions, then you will be on your way! Grin

Just as a side note. I was thinking recently how much I've learned since making my first poppet. I can't believe the journey this has been. Before this, I'd never drafted my own patterns for clothes. It's amazing what happens with one thing snowballing into another. Thank you so much Ghilie!
I can't wait for the swap!!!!

craftewoman, I agree completely!  The poppet pattern has taught me how to think more in 3D with how the patterns go together, as well as the clothes making!  Isn't it great?

I had basically never sewn anything with a sewing machine before until I got the poppet pattern. Now I've made 3 poppets, I have 2 mini's started and I'm drafting my own clothing patterns!!! It has been a great learning experience for me! A newbie can handle this pattern with no problems as long as you read it through and take your time the first go around. A HUGE thanks to Ghilie for helping me find out that I truly enjoy sewing!
My great grandmother was a doll maker and now that I've made poppets my grandma has offered to let me have some of my great grandmother's patterns that she drafted  Grin I have confidence that I will make many more dolls!

okay, so...I have a question.

I got my first poppet's legs done last night, yay! Only, I don't feel like I placed the toe guide correctly...I put it with just enough fabric at the top of the middle toe for a seam allowance, lined up the seams, and ironed it on. I sewed exactly on the guide, but it  looks like not enough of the curve was sewn on to make rounded toes, almost like the toe guide is too big. I ended up going back and 'rounding' off the toes on either side so that they were more round. However, I know Ghilie's feet come out perfect and obviously as she designed the pattern, so it's something I"M doing wrong. Anyone else have this happen???

I had the same thing happen. Instead of rounding off with the sewing machine, I rounded while sculpting the toes. I'm sure that's not necessarily the right way, but it worked for me.......
