just chillin' with my gnomies! she's terrific! is the cap stitched on or does it come off? i can't believe how perfect that hair is for her, wow!

for wrinkles like a wrinkle dog (or a klingon Cheesy) i suggest sewing pin tucks across the area you want the wrinkle to be on. what you would see on the right side of the fabric would just be a crease. you would have to adjust the pattern to accomodate the fabric used up in the tucks, it'll take mucking about but should look great when you're done. you might need to fill the ridges with polymer clay so they don't flatten out with firm stuffing though. for sure this will be quite the endeavor. good luck!

The bad news: There is no key to happiness.
The good news: It isn't locked.

Thanks monkeythumb.    I don't expect to finish anytime soon, but at least I will get to learn more tricks in the process. Wink

I've just made my first attempt at making a poppet! I made it out of red fleece, and it was a lot easier than I thought- this is only my second go at sewing curves on my sewing machine. I didn't manage to put the ears in, but it turned out much better than I expected. I just need to make hair and clothes next. I think fleece is a really good fabric to use for someone who hasn't got much experience with sewing, it was really easy to work with.

Here's a link to a picture, I don't think I can add pictures to posts yet.

All these new poppets are so cute!  They make me want to drop all my other projects and do another one, but I must be strong!  Resist the poppet-allure...

goldfishpollywog, you should probably do a tutorial when you figure out that forehead--as soon as my hubby sees a Klingon poppet, he will wonder why I haven't made one yet.   Roll Eyes

TrickyMcVomit, she's adorable! I love the fabric you used for her ears/eyelids.
