CAD= Computer Assisted Drafting.  AutoCAD is made by a company called Autodesk.  It's basically the standard 2-D and 3-D drafting program for engineering professionals.
It's not very user friendly (i.e. it is very dissimilar from all microsoft aps) - but I had the opportunity to learn this program in highschool/college, and put it to crafty use whenever possible  Wink

Meh - he's not that altered at all.  Just moved a few lines around.  I think the poppet genealogy is still very evident!  I definitely couldn't have pulled this out of my butt - would not have happened without ghilie's pattern to start with.

Well I am totally inept at quoting.
So thanks to all for the advice. I will let you know how it goes and I'll post pictures of the finished product.
I actually have most of the day to myself!!! (that never happens being a home schooling mom) So after I clean a little Smiley I will be working on my poppet.

This is totally irrelevant, but it's cool to meet a homeschooler mom.  I'm in my 10th year of homeschooling as a sophomore in high school!!
How cool. My homeschool daughter is close to your age. She's 15 and a freshman. I have 3 girls but I only homeschool the oldest. She loves it but might be ready to try high school.

I'm a homeschool grad! I totally didn't realize you home schooled! That's awesome!
I'm the oldest of 5 homeschooled kids, My 4 cousins are also all homeschooled.
I had a few friends growing up who were homeschooled up untill high school and personally I see them now and it breaks my heart how much those kids have changed. It's pretty sad. If your daughter is a strong person she'd probably be fine. My two friends were very sensitive, and trusting. Too trusting to be honest.
So anyways!

On a poppet related note! I finished sewing mine. I changed the toes because I wasn't sure how many toes I wanted. So I just rounded the feet off and will put as many toes as I want on with needle sculpting. Smiley
Now All I have to do is decide what eyes to use. The ones I bought are a bit large for the pattern as is. I am experimenting with painting buttons with some nail polish to make my own eyes. I'll let you know how that goes!

I really like the raccoon poppet. I just don't know if I could pull off altering the pattern!

Today I'm finally getting to see a friend that I made a poppet for (her birthday is on Christmas), so she gets her today. I was so lazy, I didn't make her clothes until this afternoon! I'm just not good at clothes, so my poppets tend to be nudists. Anyway, here is the dress I made-I sort of used craftewoman's halter dress pattern, but I changed it up a tad (b/c I suck). It still turned out pretty nice.

Full dress (sitting down)


Back-I just used braided yarn as a tieback and just poked a hole in the fabric for her tail.


Edited to say: I'm the first on page 200!!! CONGRATULATIONS on 200 glorious poppet pages!!!
