Glee!  I got my swap-poppet in the mail today from AlwaysInspired, so expect some new poppet fashions from me once I'm done finals!  Hooray!  Also, thanks to the ever generous Panda, I've also got supplies for me to try my hand at making my own poppet.  I'm super excited!

Ok, here's my first Poppet Smiley She was a practice run for a Poppet I'm going to make for my niece. She doesn't have a name yet and I hope to make her some clothes and trim up her hair tomorrow..

Oh my! I love her just the way she is. I like the name WildFyre too. No need to practice. She looks perfect. But you can use it as an excuse to keep her and make clothes for both of them. I love red hair.

Everything, The tutorial I have doesn't show pictures for some reason or another and the pattern is weird. I know it may seem dumb but I am so not understanding the feet bit or the head, I also am feeling seam challenged as well  Cheesy. I have a huge gap in between the toes part and the foot...are the toes a separate piece that you sew to the foot or are they on the foot and you have to sew around the pattern? And how do you assemble the head?

The head is made of four pieces of fabric, but two pattern pieces.  Are you using freezer paper?  It's much easier with freezer paper.  Anyway, you sew front seam on the face.  The other edge of the head front becomes the side seam.  You sew the back seam, leaving an opening in that seam near the bottom.  The other side of that piece becomes the other side.

Now open up your head front and head back, placing the side seams together and being mindful that you are attaching the top to the top and the bottom to the bottom - and sew all the way around the side seam.  (I start at the top of the head.  It's easier to hide a pucker on top than one on the chin.)  Turn and stuff.

I've got a leg from a not completed poppet I'll sew partially and post progress pics of...

Sew around the freezer paper leaving the "toe" area open, and the stuffing hole open...


Leave a little edge around when you cut out, except the toe area...


Then open the toe and match the seams and pin. It will look like this...
Front view:


Side view:


Iron on your toe sewing guide, sew along the toe curves, and turn the leg rightside out through the stuffing hole.

That's great!  The only thing I would add is if your machine eats fabric, leave the foot end longer.  That way you have more allowance.

Ditto. It's very scary to see your hard work vanishing into the feed-dogs!
