Thanks, everyone.  The lashes are an "eyelash" yarn.  They're glued on pretty well.
I would personally add a bit more glue to the corners as they look are sticking out there. use a toothpick to get right in that area and to apply pressure.
Typically I put my lashes on the lids with glue and then put that on the eyeball. It secures it between the fabric and plastic and keeps them from coming out or peeling off.
Other than that she looks just great! What aren't you happy with? Her dress is cute! and the jewelry is a really nice touch.

Eliea- thanks for the eyelash tip!  I'm planning on making some poppets for my little cousins, and that would make sure the eyelashes don't fall off during play time.  The fire poppet's face just looks weird to me.  Maybe I'm just too critical of my own work.

I think she's cute. You did a great job on her head! You definitely avoided a few first-timer mistakes - she's symmetrical, properly stuffed, with an adorable little nose...and a beautiful color!

I agree with inez on all points. Smiley I find the poppets that are red just seem to look more "off" than the others. I will probably only use red once for this reason. I'm not sure why they look this way though.
Perhaps eye color or ear placement? I'm not really sure. *shrugs* Maybe you'll like her better when you get her some wings? Weren't you trying to make some? *trys to remember*

edited to add: Hey when you make them for your cousins make sure the back is on the eyeball really tight. I was looking over the pictures on your red  poppet and there is a gap between the fabric and the back of the eyeball. You might be able to squeeze it tighter from the outside since she's assembled but with future ones make sure it's REALLY tight against the fabric. Wouldn't want the eyes to come off in the wash!

I'm not too happy with those eyes.  The backings that came with them didn't even fit over the post so I had to use some other ones from different eyes.  I'll make sure to use the tried-and-true eyes I've been using for my other poppets when I make my cousins' dolls.

The backs on some safty eyes are really tight. I like to take a lighter and slightly melt the hole area before I snap it on. Helps to soften the plastic and helps it fit better.

Oh yes, I have started doing this since some ingenious crafter (I think it was malibukasey) suggested it...it works so well!

I've had to do it occasionally too. I don't know why they are so next to impossible to get on sometimes. Makes no sense. I mean snug makes sense but nearly impossible does not.
