I share your enthusiasm, mhkitty.  Cheesy

I had to get my poor poppet out of sight so that I can tend to the stinky kitchen.  Her hair is so soft I just want to hang out with her and pet her head.  I didn't do hair wefts because I like to do things the hard way, I painstakingly sewed each piece on by hand.  It took a few hours.  I have custom orders to do for Etsy and I just wanna make poppet clothes. 

What a great way to boost creativity, my fabric box has never looked so inviting.
lol. It's easy to be captured by their sweet little naked selves. Smiley

Hee hee Hoo hoo! I just sewed up the newest Elenore pattern, and she's so curvy and pretty! You're gonna have to wait until I get her fully done until she can come out and be seen. It looks like I need to write the instructions for assembly for this pattern and make some markings for the new one. Oh, well, I guess I can't have all the fun, right? Gotta share!

Yay! Bubblegum! I'm an Activity Planner in a Nursing Home and we love having visitors for our Residents and they love gifts. Visitors more than gifts tho Smiley

I took my girls JuneBug and Maeve to work after making them and everyone loved holding them and petting their hair.

Consider your cognitive levels if you plan to gift/ donate dolls... One that are delicate or have a lot of small pieces are probably not best if your gifting them to someone/ someplace with a high level of dementia... Gods know how many times I've had to rescue crayons/bingo chips/ other small items from a snacky resident Cheesy Think like small children for that level...

Bright/soft/high contrast/different textures are uber nice for later dementia... Thats why I have bright pink hair, wear velvet and colored striped socks/ tights. Stimulation, things outside of their normal environment... I love my ladies and gentlemen Smiley

My MIL is a med passer at one of our nursing homes. She loves dealing with the people even though she only works every other weekend. It suits her though, she works at a elementary school during the week with 2nd graders and old folks on the weekend. She swears they are all at the same level  Cheesy She also agreed that they would probably just love to see my dolls. She is begging me to bring a couple and come to work with her.

Is that the one you sent to me yesterday?  I made it yesterday.  She is limbless, but she has big boobies.

Craftewoman, how were the shoulders on the new curvy lady?  I thought they might be too wide - but do they look good?  i'm excited to see!

Here's Momo, the anime inspired poppet - the one that will have orange and yellow hair.  You can see that the side seam is curvy - the shoulders are set back.  However, if you stuff it right, it will come out well. 





It's especially important to set the arms correctly when making a boobie poppet.  Set the arms too low, and you will have trouble dressing her.
