I would love to join!

Yeah!!! Another one is being assimilated! Did you PM gilie yet?

eliea please do show us what didn't work. I'm bored today. Maybe I'll play with it later. sitting is causing me a lot of pain and I can do that standing.

One of my favorite quotes is from Thomas Edison re: the light bulb. As I remember the story:
A reporter said something about why didn't you give up long before 10,000 failures.
Edison's reply was he didn't see it as 10,000 failures or mistakes but 10,000 things he knew didn't work. Closer to find what did work.
He also knew it would work. Just a matter of trying.

only cut the design in the outter layer, cut a circle out of the pleather behind so the foot shows through. did that make sense?
it takes a LOT of sculpy to make a shoe. a lot.
Oh my gosh you guys rock! that would so work! I have some of that heavy duty stuff that you iron on so you don't have to sew to fabrics together too. now to beg mom for a scrap of the pleather a friend gave her.
I do have to say that's the nice thing about poppet clothing. they don't really use too much fabric!
Now I have to remember what I did with the "failures" becasue I don't think I threw them away.....

If I were to not do a craft or project because I was nervous about it, I'd never get anything done. You have to jump in as if you have NO FEAR! Sammy Woo asked me once if there's anything I can't do. I told him that I don't know, because I attempt everything as if I'll be great at it. If it's not so great the first time, it's because I need more practice or training, and I'll get better. If you take that attitude, you can accomplish anything in life! Go for it!
Tell that to Corizans shoes. I'll have to take some pictures to post becasue I just can't figure out how to make them work. Perhaps you lovely ladies can give me some ideas. Smiley I've made 5 different shoes all of them failed. I do have one more pair cut out and pinned but I'm scared to sew them as they're the last of my pretty green felt. Sad

You were trying to make the crocks, right? Maybe you need to use something besides felt. Or line the felt with some pleather using the fusible web. That way you don't have a problem with stretching or tearing.
I dont believe I saw the tut/pattern for the crocs, is that n here somewhere?

Hi, I have just read the last few pages, and there are some great poppets!

I started mine yesterday, so far I have 2 legs and 2 arms, hopefully I will be able to do the body today, and maybe the head tomorrow. I am so scared to do the head! I think I have gone ok so far though, my mother and I went and brought a second hand sewing machine on the weekend, (Bernina 830). So this is the first time I have sewn something with a sewing machine, ever!
So, anyways, hopefully I will have a poppet to show you all in the next few days... Wink

I was just wondering, what stitch have you all been using to sew the hair on?

I just whip stitch it around the weft. Nothing fancy.

Congrats on joining!  Hope you can learn to keep up with the thread.  I'm totally terrified about having to leave the country and not have internet access for 23 days!  AHHH!
