Great Poppets! I really love Delirium and her puppy!! =D

And I'll probably be more prepared now when I stuff my Poppet and fix the nose. I'll take a picture of the yarn now. Can you believe that it was 362 yards of (I THINK) handspun yarn for $2.50 total?!?! That's amazing! And it's recycled. Grin

Where can I get a small bit of air dry clay?? I don't think I need a whole hunk of it. x)
If it's recycled it's probably not handspun. Typically recycled yarn comes form  a store-bought unraveled sweater. But some of my FAVORITE yarns are ones I recycled. So enjoy your yarn that's quite a steal for that much no matter where it came from!

My newest poppet is done!  She's nameless, tho, and I do not know what to call her!  Huh


http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=229118.0

Help me name her, please!  Smiley
I love her!! soo cute <3 she looks like Rebekka to me (with a k!)

I saw that on this website I get poppet velour from they do flannel in various colours. would flannel be good for a poppet?

lol I will show this post to my daughter, Melissa...she loves getting caught up on new poppets that are posted during the week. Smiley She can finally see hers, now! I'll let you know if she likes the name! Cheesy
I have the same fixation as your daughter!!
I hope she likes the name Grin

I am such an idiot...I just went back to read this and realized that you weren't replying to MY post but the blue haired poppet post...crap. Well, I hope it's okay to have two Rebekka's with two Ks because my daughter totally loved the name when I told her...She's reminding us it's 'Rebekka with two Ks'. Sorry to usurp the name suggestion! I guess I read the post too quickly!!!

*embarrassed*

Either way, here is my lovely daughter Melissa (she's 10) with her poppet, "Rebekka with two Ks"

She loves her!
no, I don't mind Smiley
I'm honoured that she picked my suggestion!!
supercute photo XD  Wink

Is anyone using clay in the face...?
I have everything to start, except the clay. Do I need it? Does it really make that much of a difference?
Maybe people who have done it with or without could let us new to poppets know what they think?!?

I haven't used it yet, and if you don't you have to pack the stuffing really small and tight in the front of the face, or it'll make the fabric look funny.

Wait, where did those come from?  I swear I didn't go to the craft store, honest!

Let the baby crafting commence!  Cheesy

If you look back at the green one I did, you'll see what no clay does. He just doesn't have a defined nose....
I'll be using clay on my next one!

I haven't used any clay yet, but it can make a difference. I've just been really packing stuffing into their nose. It kinda pushes the whole mouth/nose area forward and gives them like a cat mouth/snout thing, which is cute.
But the clay does give them nice pointy noses. Either way is good

Hey! I took some pictures of the yarn, so here they are:


^Here's a picture of the yarn. It's darker than this.


^This is closer to the color of it.


^Here's another picture of the yarn. It's a super dark brown, very close to black.


^And here is just a picture of the "tag" or note it came with. I don't know if it's of use or not.

So, if anyone would be interested in having some, let me know. I might just give you the rest once I make the hair wefts. Or I'll keep a bit. Dunno.

yesterday i went to the dollarama and found these little wine bottle covers that are asian dresses/tunics. they need a zip down the back to get poppet in and out but that should be easy. seriously guys, one dollar each! if you live in canada check it out.

Monkeythumb I love the gold one! Are the holes for the sleeves big enough for the hands to go through?
I'll have to check my USA dollar store. Perhaps they have something similar.
