what about fabric paint?  I know I used that on another doll I made...although not the easiest it is possible and child proof....except if you get a picker Cheesy Wink

That will be my next step if I can't suss out embriodery.  I'm a bit scared with paint, at least with embriodery I can unpick it myself if I stuff it up

Thanks muchly

I embroidered the face of Tinkerbell. It worked out wonderful! I drew on my eyes and mouth with a regular pencil and then stitched away.

An Easier Peasier Easy Peasy Poppet Dress

Hey guys, when I was making some stuff for the Poppet Swap I was looking through my stash for some things to make clothes out of. I had this really horrible gauzy shirt of my grandma's that she gave me a while back that was a nice red color but I was definitely not going to wear it anywhere. I wanted to make an easy peasy dress from it but it was really thin and I knew it would be difficult to sew etc. so I put it in the corner for a while but I knew it would be great because it matched the hair color I chose so perfectly.

I picked it up again determined to make something out of it when I realized that the cuff and the sleeve already made a perfect easy peasy poppet dress! All you have to do is cut the sleeve at the desired length and possibly cut & hem the back to make a snugger fit. I used that iron on stuff to hem everything so this was a completely no sew project and most cuffs have buttons/button holes already so you don't really have to worry about that.

All in all it took about 5-10 minutes and it made a pretty sweet dress.

I made a pretty easy one recently too. I used a button down the front night shirt that was way to small but so soft. I cut it about 7 inches from the bottom which had a detailed hemline, and then gathered the whole thing to the length of the top. Then turned it so the buttons went down the back! All I had to do was add the snap to the top. So easy and cute. I can't post pictures right now as my camera has died. I bought a disposable camera jsut so I could take pictures but it's going to take a while to fill that thing up!

I just want to say hi to everyone and "officially" join the fun! I got my pattern about a month ago, but I've been busy. However, I'm pretty sure this is going to be the weekend I start working on my first poppet!!! I'm so excited. I have a remanent that I picked up and noticed it is either Alova suede itself or something quite similar. I have about a yard. I bought it to make a Blythe coat, but I think there's going to be enough for a whole entire poppet and then a Blythe coat or three! I'm hoping to find some nice light colored yarn in my stash since the fabric I have is a nice deep grey. Squee! Cannot. Wait.

Oh, and I've read through 400 some pages. I'm trucking my way through this whole thread. There's so much useful info and I love seeing all the poppets. Also joined the flickr group to see all the ones there. Um, I've not been busy enough at work lately. Shhhh. Don't tell!
