I'm making a Link poppet right now, too! He's angry because he's still naked . . .

I can't wait to see how that turns out! How are you going to do the leggings?

I have decided to kinda cheat on making the leggings. I'm making them out of jersey to give them the right look, but jersey really gums up the joints and makes them impossible to move, so I am basically making a little pair of underwear (ahahahah! can't let Link go commando) and a pair of something like thigh-highs to cover his legs. That way he still has his "leggings" and can also still move his legs.

I make a wig base for the hair like a hat that I crochet and then I sort of latch hook it to the hat wig and then my poppet has hair. I prefer this to wefting. I just cant seem to get it to do what I want it to. 

I have done that a few times too. I liked the first one but I didn't feel the "knots" at the base were tight enough. The second wig I didn't like at all but my sister is ok with it so I guess it's all right.
What part of doing the wefting doesn't co-operate? Is it the placement of the weft? Making the wefts? I"d be happy to offer advice on that as I'm sure many others would too.
I'd love to hear how your wigs came out too! Part of being in the poppet a long is sharing tips and tricks we like to learn from each other.

I am scared to death to run wefts through my cheap machine. LOL, I don't crochet but did a wig and latch hooked the hair. I have a few spots to fill in, but what poppet needs just one color of hair?  I may go back to those dollar tree ties. LOL

I did all my wefts except for the 3-4 most recent dolls on a cheapo machine. The paper protects the machine and it's not a problem for it at all. yarn is actually thinner than most fabric. Even though it feels thick.
But I know how you feel! I was scared to make poppets on my machine at first till I learned that one of the other poppeters (I think it was clonedbravo) had the same machine I do and it worked just fine.
You know if you guys are really frightened by the wefts going through your machine I bet you could get someone to weft some for you!

I just dont think I make the wefts properly. I dont know if I used the wrong paper or the wrong amount of yarn or what but they just didnt look right to me. I am kinda wierd cause I dont like the idea of having any skin showing through the hair. I dont know I would like to try again but I am scared Undecided

I will after I test it to see if it works! Smiley If it does I plan to post a tut. Can you weft the hair? Make the strips on the machine to stitch to the Head? I've been meaning to take pictures to shoe how I do that too....
Yeah, I make the wefts and attach them-it's probably just me. I just never seem to like how my hair turns out. If I put on too few, there are bald spots, but if I put too many it just gets really bulky. I've never found a good middle ground.

Ok the poppet hair tut:
http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=310923
I hope it helps some. I do not tell you how to make wefts but I linked the way I do it at the beginning of the post. I also put up some tips and tricks and how  I position the wefts. There's about 8 pictures.
If something isn't really clear feel free to let me know I'll try to describe better or take more pics. Mr clone trooper is still temporarily bald. Smiley
