Definitely in on this.  I'm already halfway through with my poppet.

I think I wanna try and hop on, been admiring doll-type crafts for a long time, so why not? (I also love plushies, the kind you buy for WAY too much money of popular video game/anime characters) Poppets are the cutest dolly I've ever seen.

I would LOVE to see boy poppets.

So would I!  *grin*

Let me know when you're at the pattern sharing phase.

While I'm eagerly waiting, what materials should I buy now to be ready for the big event - of poppet making?  Smiley

I want to make 2 poppets.  a blond haired one and a brownish haired one.

THANK YOU!! I just saw the email with pattern pieces.  The instructions seem clear enough.  Smiley  Never made a doll before (I did make a frog once for my ds when he turned 1yr and the concept seems similar).

I even have alova suedecloth in my diaper fabrics, so woo-hoo!!  If the kids go down tonight easily I'll cut out the pieces at least.  Smiley

I don't have freezer paper, though.  Is that crucial?  Can I just mark with tracing paper on the actual fabric so I know where to sew?  That seems to be the intent of the freezer paper - am I understanding that correctly?

I have the pattern, it is even cut out. Shocked I have been working on a swap and my sons Christmas stocking. I have finished my part of the swap and am slowly working my way through the stocking: now I can work on my poppet too. Cheesy I may be slow though because I sew by hand. Wink

I did not use freezer paper because I couldn't find it.  My material was light and thin enough to see the pattern through, so I traced it onto the fabric with a marking pencil.  I used a pink pencil, thinking it wouldn't show ~ I was wrong!  It's not that bad, but I won't do it again.  Fortunately, as I turned a corner at Wal-Mart last week, it was like a light came down from heaven right onto the freezer paper!!  I was so excited that I actually smiled my way through the rest of my time at Wal-Mart ~ it was a miracle!  Cheesy  I will definitely be using it this time.  I hope that helps!

Well, I decided to scrap the running poppet. The material ran when I tried to stuff it. All that work down the drain bin. I bought some new material and have made a second poppet reusing everything except the material of course. I've made some changes to the pattern so that it's just a boy poppet and not a cat-girl anymore. His body is done, and I'm working on the hair. Ihave to stop now and take care of the real baby doll, sigh!
