It's a polyester knit with a fuzzy side and a smooth side.  It has a slight stretch, not too much!  Maybe you could describe it to someone in a fabric store, and they would know....

Ack! Finding the fabric to make a Poppet out of in the Australian spring is uber-difficult!
I found a light type of suede at Lincraft. If you can't find any in the normal fabrics they usually have some in the in with the furnishing materials.

I have heard it called micro suede, ultra suede, savoy suede and another name that I can't think of at the moment. You could try an upholstery  shop if you can't find it in the dress fabrics. But the suede you use will need a slight stretch, so check before you buy.

it sounds a bit like velour - although looking at the pictures the poppets fabric seems stiffer. Over here we use velour for drapey things. Its quite cheap though so it could be worth a go  Smiley

Kate8679 on JoAnn.com they have it described as...

Alova Suedecloth
A soft and luscious fabric, with all the beauty of suede, but the easy care of polyester.  100% Polyester


Maybe you can ask for suede like polyester?


I have all the pieces stuffed except for the head. I'm off to look for eyes.  I bought some Halloween fabric for 70% off that I've had my eye on for a while to make a dress out of. It's black with white spider webs and glitter red spiders.

I got going on my jumbo-sized poppet tonight.  He has bunny ears.  The first photo is a comparison between Ghilie's normal-sized pattern (blue leg) and the enlarged version I blew-up on the photocopier.  The second pic is a summary of tonight's progress. (I'm going to make him silky pyjamas in the red printed fabric on the inside of his ears).
Ghilie, this pattern is really great.  Generally my sewing experiments are disasters - but I'm so happy with how this is turning out. (I'm having a much easier time sewing the bigger body parts - beginners out there may want to try enlarging the pattern.)

The bunny is going to be really cute. I like the fabric in the ears with the grey.
