some have pipe cleaners in them but I don't think anyone's tried anything stronger. They make special armatures to put in dolls and I really want to get one to try in a poppet but I haven't yet.

You'd need some pretty strong wire. You'd also have to find a way to anchor it somehow so that it won't just slide around in all the fluff you have to shove in their limbs. I really want to try out one of those plastic doll armatures, too! They look so cool!

I've been trying to work out in my head how to get them in the doll. My thoughts were to change the pattern so that you left a majority of the back open instead of the opening at the hip. Then you could put the armature inside. I even thought you could either do button holes or leave openings in the fabric where the arms and legs of the armature came out. And do buttonholes on the legs and arms. My problem is what's to keep the arms and legs on the body? What would prevent them from sliding off the armature?
I'd love to bounce some ideas around so someone could try it!

You would probably have to actually sew the arms and legs to the body and leave the buttonholes for the armature to pass through, so instead of a jointed doll you would just have a very posable one. Or, if there is something you can put thread through at the ends of the armature limbs, you could just anchor that to the doll's hands and feet, but it might still get a bit twisted if the limbs were jointed. Who knows? But I'd love to find out . . .

Discussing the possibilities anyways!

That was sort of what I was thinking. More barbie like and less stuffie. But I think it could work. Smiley

To make a doll armature, you can use a strong wire, like a hanger, and using wire and masking tape, shape it the way you want it. I would slit openings in the arms and legs to insert it, then, sew the arms and legs on using the ladder stitch, and then stuff the doll. I would leave the back open, and the back of the legs and arms open for stuffing, and close them up later.
The arms and legs would no longer be jointed, but would have an increased range of motion because of the wire.
