DO YOU CUT THE FABRIC TO GET THE JOINT BIT THROUGHT ?

DOES THAT MAKE ANY SENSE?? HOW MUCH DENTAL FLOSS DO I USE?

STILL A BIT CONFUSSLED Huh

Nope just put the Shank part of the button up against the fabric. Use a safety pin to hold it in place while you stuff and till you joint.
For the dental floss I use at least 2-3 feet for arms and the same for  the legs. You'll cut a bunch of it off after you finish but this makes sure that I have enough. And dental floss is so cheep it's not a big deal.

To answer the person asking about hand stitching poppets. Mine was hand sewn. I used tiny stitches and a strong thread. While I wouldn't let the dog get ahold of it, it is holding up quite well. I am planning on making more this way.

Thanks! I just didn't want to spend all that time hand sewing it and then have it fall apart, ya know? I will be carrying it around so it's not like it'd sit on a shelf and not be touched, which is what I was worried about.

There are so many pages on this thread now! I can't even work out where I'd read up to before.

I finally managed to understand the instructions for the head- for some reason every time I read it my brain had told me it meant something else and I was getting needlessly confused- so I've sewn all the basic bits together. Also I found a 10" needle in a shop and got very excited and I've jointed and sculpted the body, but the 10" needle is quite blunt and thick and has made little rips in the cloth so I think I'd better not use it for sculpting next time.
I want to make her some underwear because her crotch is a bit deformed, but I think she'll need boxers as my attempt at pants really didn't work with her badly jointed hips.

How long a weft are people using for the hair? The one I made with embriodery thread barely fit once across her head.

The way I do the hair wefts is using paper.
I cut the paper into strips, then cut the strips into smaller lengths according to the head.
Then, add yarn and stitch.
Works well for me.

I finally broke down and tried a poppet. Punk Chick said it was idiot proof. NOT. I am wondering if they have a place for worst poppet on earth. I plan to keep it, because I learned by making a lot of mistakes, and I'm not defeated that easily. Everyone I have seen on here has been great.  Sad

Maybe "Worst First". LOL
