This one does! I was going to make a goth fairy. But I think she looks more like a gnome! I'm just as happy to do that. So, the goth fairy will have to wait until the elenore pattern is revised. She'll still be cute!

Make her a gnome.  A pointy red hat is a must.

Eliea- I'm new to this type of sewing, and finally comfortable enough to experiment.  Thanks for the advice, I cut it for a long, lean poppet, but  didn't think about the way that the feet laid  in regards to the bias or the fact that my machine stretches it while I'm sewing... We live and learn! Smiley

Lol. Exactly these things happen. I've only learned what I have through doing things the wrong way. You do not want to see my mess ups to know how I learned it! lol.
However i do like to pass what I learn on to others so they don't make the same mistakes I do.

Yeah, I'm used to working w/ patterns that have the grain lines arrows on them. I had to stop and think each time I put the pattern to fab. Which isn't always easy for me, thinking that is, see my signature. So I made notes on my master pattern to lay the pieces one way for wide not so tall or skinny and tall. Goes much quicker.

when I do things right It's only usually becasue I actually read and followed the directions! lol. Instead of rushed through them! That's why poor Gloria didn't have a tail. I got ahead of my self and thought I knew what I was doing!
Yep learned my lesson with that! lol

mmm, yeah my leopard print ended up w/o a tail too. But I've sorta forgotten about her and not finished her yet...  I still need to make a tail for the rabbitty one cause I'm having trouble deciding ... I have a tendency to get lost in thought... What were we talking about?

I guess chubby poppets aren't a bad thing. I just was not expecting this, after making so many.
I hope I haven't offended anyone.
You can't tell it by my avatar, but I'm 5'2" and wear a size 20 in US sizes.
I'm not exactly Paris Hilton!
LOL!

LOL  I'm 5'2" too!  PH needs to eat!

If I wanted to paint tattoos on my poppet, how would I go about doing that? I have some white alova suede that I want to use for a poppet and to paint, just have never painted on fabric before. Am I making sense here? Got  a head full of ideas, a snoot full of chocolate martinis and a napkin full of designs. Pity my poor poppet if I should start tonight! LOL

Well, you're gonna need a steady hand. LOL! Get some acrylic paint, like the craft paints you see at the crafts store for cheap, in the colors you want. Then get a bottle of fabric medium. When you mix the acrylics with the fabric medium, they flow better, and they don't dry crusty hard, like the acrylics do without it. Then, just paint those tatts on.

I'd get a package of various thicknesses of paint brushes too. So you can do thick or thin lines and more than one color at once!
Oh but make sure to let 1 coat dry all the way first. It's messy otherwise.
