Finally!



Wow, this took forever!  I got the pattern three and a half months ago, but in the meantime, we moved and worked on adopting my nephew, so things have been pretty insane.

The fabric she's sitting/standing on is going to be a dress tomorrow, but I just worked for twelve hours nonstop to make her, so I think she's good for now.

You can't read the embroidery on the heart very well because it's in metallic thread, but it says "Will" (my nephew's name).  It's going to be his birthday present in a couple of days.

oh she's lovely!! she looks like a racoon...her tail is so cute!!

so I just got my supplies together for my first poppet only I'm now a little worried about my eyes. I got 18mm, are those gonna look huge? could someone maybe post a pic of a normal sized poppet with 18mm eyes?

everyone here uses 15-18mm eyes, I don't think they'll look huge. if they do play up to that and make her very kawaii!!
