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

There should be a twelve step program for crafting

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?!?
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.

I have one of the blue ones!  I found it in a thrift store still in the packaging last year.  They must be in the states somewhere...

Oops... I lied.  Mine's a bit different.  Upper-left in the picture, obviously:  http://i95.photobucket.com/albums/l156/sweets4ever48/IMG_7130-1.jpg

Those are awesome!  I was going to attempt making a dress like that, but maybe I'll scour the dollar stores instead.
