I swore to myself that I wouldn't shop for fabric until after Christmas! What's a girl to do?

Wow! all that chatter overnight! You guys are awesome!
Crap! I was waiting to post pics of my poppet until she had some clothes, and it looks like the reverse stitch button thing on my machine just crapped out. Hubby says he doesn't think he can fix it...  Cry And I have 2 more to make for presents and a bag and wallet.... *ugh* Hopefully it'll just fix itself tomorrow...  Wink
Oh that stinks about the backstitch I hate that. I don't know how I'd live without it. Your machine may need servicing. They're supposed to get it every year for oiling and such. most places will give you an idea of how much it will cost before fixing it. Can't hurt.

Hi! I'm planning to make a green poppet! I'm cutting out pieces ATM, but am slightly confused by the instruction to  add a seam allowance to half the body back...? Could someone clarify, please?

Are you needing the backstitch for button holes? I sew the buttons on the outside and snaps or Velcro on the inside. It makes it easier for the kids to work the clothes.

Ghilie, Your mouse is adorable. I felt the same way after seeing Lolly and her sisters. That's why I made Cherry. I know that Katie won't miss her but, I do. Sad

Okay Happychick, here's the answer to your question. You sew the back of the body, around the bum with the paper on as a guide. Then, add 1/4 inch to the side of the body back, and also around the body front when you cut that out, that way the'll fit together properly, otherwise you'll end up with a very skinny poppet.

Yay!  All my machine needed was oil, and now it's up and running.  My cranberry red poppet is well underway.  Too bad I got so excited about him that I sewed the back of his head on upside down.  Tongue  Now when I put his head on his neck, he'll be looking at the ceiling.  I'm trying to decide whether to take apart the whole head or just make a new opening.  Do you all think it would work OK just to sew up the current hole and open a new one?  Otherwise I'll have to redo the ears and everything.

Hey guys I"m not sure if these will fit the poppets since I don't have one yet but here's some free sock monkey clothing patterns and such:

On the right side is the navigation to the items in question. There's a hat and scarf, a crocheted mesh skirt, and an apron dress pattern. Smiley

That's a great link Eliea! I'm going to make the apron dress for my next poppet!

I can't believe we're up to 100 pages already.
should hopefully be able to post pics of my new poppet tonight =]

Thanks craftewoman! It makes sense now, reading the instructions again.

I made my first leg! My excitement is entirely disproportionate to my workmanship, but it definitely looks like a leg, albeit with rather pointy feet.
