Ok, Here is my second ever poppet, this one has clothes! She's wearing black shorts and a corset.
She needed a mouth to smile at me. I think she likes the roses in her hair. Any suggestions on her name?

thanks ghilie!

oh, she's sweet and kinda naughty with that corset there. how about Trixie? i love that name.

ok peeps with the boy poppets on the go, share your boy poppet inspiration. my ideas for him are still pretty vague.

as for the SA on the face, the line that's shown is the stitching line on the front, the SA is added to the other side (where the double line is). you don't "add" any SA because (if you're using the freezer paper method) you don't cut out closely around the head shape, you use a much bigger piece of fabric than the head so you have material to work with when you are sewing the detail. you trim it after you sew.

ok, now i feel like i'm clear as mud.

Thanks for your help, ghilie and MonkeyThumb!

You do NOT add a seam allowance along the front of the face.  The "marked" seam allowance is all that is needed, it's not really marked though, which is why I added that in the instructions.  Clear as mud huh?

Are you doing the freezer paper method, like it says in the instructions?

I will be doing the freezer paper method, but I just confused myself again...


as for the SA on the face, the line that's shown is the stitching line on the front, the SA is added to the other side (where the double line is). you don't "add" any SA because (if you're using the freezer paper method) you don't cut out closely around the head shape, you use a much bigger piece of fabric than the head so you have material to work with when you are sewing the detail. you trim it after you sew.

ok, now i feel like i'm clear as mud.

So, let me see if I get this:
-On the arms and legs and ear, I stitch right around the edge of the freezer paper pattern.
-On the face and head, I stitch right around the edge on the unmarked edges of the pattern, and down the line that is indicated on the marked edges of the pattern.

But now, I'm not sure what to do about the body pieces and tail. Do I:
A) Stitch right around the edge for all pieces
B) Draw a 1/4" seam allowance around all of the pieces and then stitch on that
C) Do something else?


My goodness! I've been sewing for almost 30 years and I can't believe I'm stuck on this! Sometimes, I tend to over-think things...

On the face piece, stitch right around the front part.  then cut it out.  You don't sew the back part of the face piece yet.  The SA is for when you attach it to the back part of the head.  On the head back piece you sew around the non SA side, leaving a hole for the neck.  Then cut out, including SA, so that you can slap it together with the front piece.  Clear as dirty water now?  Cheesy
