He he, love the sequins. ^-~

So many fun new poppets.

Omgoodness at the tiny head!

Welcome new poppeters!

Ambo, I love that your little blue poppet has different ears. Mine are always slightly different. lol. I can never sew the same line twice.
Ditto. and forget sewing it backwards! Or in the reverse. But hair covers a multitude of evils. Also Gloria's body is a bit lopsided but I placed her arms and legs fairly straight and it's not too noticable. Smiley

Every single poppet I have made has a crooked body.  If the arm and leg placement doesn't hide it, clothes will!

ambo - the body lopsidedness can be cured!  Manipulate the stuffing so that it's more even.  But she looks really good anyway - you can't even notice that she's crooked.

Florence is a cutie!

ROTFLMAO   Cheesy  I'm sure Florence will get over her fright!  It's much the same look as my cat gets when I sneeze.  She always comes back though!  Seriously, you are very lucky to have received such a special doll.  May you and Florence share a long and happy life!

The problem with being middle of the road is that you are bound to get run over.

Ambo, there are a lot of things that can be fixed with proper stuffing. really, you could sew perfectly, and if you understuff or stuff lopsidedly your doll will look funny. Use a screwdriver and stuff until you just can't push anymore in. Use the screwdriver to move the stuffing around, and PUSH!

Flowerwitch, congrats on your new poppety friend. That outfit that Clonedbravo made is excellent! I love it. You know she's a doll making machine! I swear she makes at least two a week!  That's compared to my approx 1 a week. LOL!

Since there are so many of you poppeteers out there who've requested the Elenore pattern, but are having difficulty with the front 3 pieces, I've made markings on them to help you out. I'll post the pics here, and if you need a new copy of the pattern, feel free to pm me. I don't mind.




When sewing the head, arms, legs, and back of the body, use the freezer paper method outlined in the poppet pattern.

Sorry, Ghilie, I'm not trying to hijack this thread. It's just that Elenore became known as the poppet with boobs.
