amigurl55, I also bought some wings too, though fairy wings. I just can't figure out how to attach them though (Silverwing made me a fairy poppet and sewed them on, but I think that I would want mine to be able to be removable). I made a little backpack and hot glued it to the wings and the backpack has straps that are amde of elastic to fit over her hands, but whenever I put the wings on, I have to bend her arms at horrible angles and then I feel bad, and the elastic gets stuck between her arm and body joint and then I get afraid that it will loosen her jointing, so now I am too scared to put them on her. I would love to see how you attach them and just to see your poppet in general Smiley

Anways, made another fairy poppet, you can find her here: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=303235.0

averyg- I haven't figured out how I'm going to put the wings on.  I'll have to brainstorm.  From the sneak peek, your fairy looks great!

I made a really pretty dress for the angel poppet out of some type of satin and cotton jersey knit.  It looks really pretty, but its a little tight across the hips and sort of crooked because both fabrics are tricky to sew with.  I think I'm just going to make a plain white dress then add a sash or something.

Poppet tights?  Wow, that sounds cool!

Here's a pic of the dress.  You can see its a little tight in her "hip" area and its really tight around her little poppet butt.  You can't really tell in the pic, but one side is also longer than the other. 


I want to keep the same look, but I only have enough fabric to make a dress without the pink panel.  Any ideas on how to make a sash or keep the look without adding a fabric panel?

I began unpacking my fabric the other day.  We moved last month.  Anyway, I can't get to the good stuff because my husband buried it underneath all the other boxes.  But I did find some scraps of dark brown freckle skin fabric and some white alova like substance.  I want to make the white rabbit from Alice in Wonderland, but re-styled as a girl rabbit.  I hate working with white though.  With the dark brown freckle skin, I don't know what to do.  It's not a lot.  Maybe I'll make the baby poppet.

For fun furr-

I hear it also helps if you can make a mock-pattern for the headpeice, do the freezy thing, then turn it over so you can see the underside (without the fur) and use a straight razor or a box razor to cut it.

You get a lot less fur shedding all over if you don't use scissors.
Or at least that's what I hear Cheesy
I've heard that too.It does help but I still had a lot of shedding when I made my husbands Tribble. My hope is that between the freezer and this method I can get the least amount of shedding.
I have this soft fluffy white fabric that is similar to faux fur I've had for awhile but It's in a bag becasue it sheds so bad. So we will see how this works!
I have to get the pink/purple poppets done first.....


averyg- what about gluing a snap to the center of her back and her wings? I think e-6000 says it can be washed and still hold so if that's true that might work!

Amigurl55-- I think that dress is beautiful, I don't see any flaws at all.

averyg-- ooer, sparkly! And if not a snap, what about velcro?

ghilie-- can't wait to see, whatever you decide I'm sure it will be stunning!

I used velcro for Lollie my goth lolita poppet's wings. It worked great! Also my poppet Fable has velcro on wings!
