loving the librarian and verity who's hair is wonderful!

OK, I've been thinking about having a go at poppet uggs for my snow faerie when she's finished,and I thought I'd make them from felt, lined with soft fabric to keep her tootsies warm  Smiley with fimo (like polymer clay) soles. I think this would work...anyone tried?? I might do a tester piece first.

i made boots for the swap, i put a zipper in the back or it would have been impossible to get a foot in and out of there though.

Miss dolly, verity is so cute!  I like her dress.  Grin

Monkeythumb, do you have a pattern for the boots?  I was going to do lace-up ones, to match her skirt, but couldn't figure them out.

i don't usually use a pattern but i'm trying to think of how to do a tute for the boots. i sculpted the fabric around my fingers and stitched it together, it was weird.

Does anyone know if there is a way to remove safety eyes?  I made a head and put on the eyes and stuffed and everything, and then now that it's sewn on the body it' s too small.  It just looks.....  weird.  I don't want to waste the eyes though, as I painted the backs of them special for this poppet.  What can I do?

is the backing metal? if so you can "lift" up the edges of the backing. you will have to use new backings though to make sure they really stay on.

halblingefrau, if there is no other way, maybe you could cut the plastic back part off very carefully--then you could use another pair of backs with them. 

Could you just use that poppet head for a smaller poppet?

I apparently have not used the scanner since Hubby re-installed my computer. So I'm downloading the drivers so I can give ya'll the pattern for the boots and the tut. Smiley
I'll have it ready shortly. Smiley
