First of all it's a bad idea to post your email addr for the world unless you love spam. I think it said this is your first post so... easy mistake to make.
Now, go back to the original post and almost everything you need to know is there. If you are still not sure let us know. Post 1 for the computer forum naive.

Hi Wolfhart.  I sent the pattern to you, but you might want to edit your post and take out the email address now.   Wink

Hi Poppeteers. I just thought I'd check in. I can't believe that the poppet is still such a craze! I'm working on some other projects these days. I've discovered needle sculpting, so, I'm making dolls with BIG noses! LOL! The patterns that I've drafted for Elenore (aka poppet with boobs) and the clothes are still available to anyone who wants to pm me with their e-mail addy. Stop by my WIPs thread in the Toys and dolls discussions board if you want to see what I'm up to. T.T.F.N.

Hi gals!!  Just checking in here to say that I still have not made those boy poppets for my daughter and I need to.  I'm hoping that by posting here I'll shame myself into getting started already.   I must have them finished for Christmas.  Lana's 4 poppet girls (Thanks to Ghilie and Nezbutt again) are lonely according to my DD and they need husbands and babies.

Question for those of you who have used the "suede" (I think that's what it's called) yarn for poppet hair versus regular yarn.  I have a girl who high action, i.e. she is played with and moved around a lot.  Right now she has regular yarn hair, but with all this action her hair has really started to get fuzzy and shed on everything.  I was thinking of changing the color anyway, and I was wondering if the suede yarn is any better on the fuzz level.  Thanks for the input guys!

If you're talking about this stuff:

I would not use it. Lots of little bits come off the ends. Next time you're in the store try it fussing with one of the ends.

I think most ppl are using the Red Heat stuff. Walmart sells it. Generic stuff.

I agree with Sactownsue. It sheds aweful. I prefer Carron Simply Soft (acrylic and inexpensive) or Bernat Softee Chunky(same)
I'm allergic to the red heart yarn something in the chemicals they put on it to make it look nice, makes my hands break out and itch.

Red Heart makes me sneeze! But I still use it because it is so inexpensive Wink
