I agree with Sactownsue. It sheds aweful. I prefer Carron Simply Soft (acrylic and inexpensive) or Bernat Softee Chunky(same)
I'm allergic to the red heart yarn something in the chemicals they put on it to make it look nice, makes my hands break out and itch.

Red Heart makes me sneeze! But I still use it because it is so inexpensive Wink
I prefer to pay the extra 20 cent for a 6.0z skein of simply soft. lol. I am a woman of comfort. My crafting takes up enough of my time, it is what I do to relax, if I am uncomfortable while doing it it's not worth it to me. Plus I love the way simply soft feels. I have many a blanket made by my grandma that is so rough since it's made with red heart. lol
Sorry I'm not trying to sound like an infomercial! lol. I will say one downside to simply soft is the yarn is a bit splitty if you crochet or knit with it. But I'm so used to it I don't notice. For poppet hair it's not even an issue. But the Softee Chunky is soft and thick so I don't have to use as much. Smiley

There is also a thread called "doll making sites" in the toys and dolls discussions board that I put together. It's been very useful when I've found a site and can't find it again. Lots of tutes.

HELP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
i really don't understand how to do the head (including the ear attachment)
could someone PLEASE help me??

thanks,
luvelycritter

(somewhere in this thread is a picture tutorial for the head)  There are 4 pieces to the head.  2 fronts and 2 backs.  You sew the front seam on the head front and the back seam on the head back - leave a opening for turning in the head back.  You can attach the ears by hand after the head is sewn together or you can sandwich them in between the head front and back.

edit:  found it!  http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=205341.msg2756394;topicseen#msg2756394

If anyone is interested, I posted the modified pattern pieces for the puppy pattern in his thread ( http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=270692.20) ... or, at least, I posted a picture of the modified pieces. I know. I'm lame.

On a much less so-last-month note, I did finish my latest Poppet, from the Elinore pattern. Her name is Zephyr, and she's quite a bit smaller than Bronwyn. I don't have any pictures of her yet, which is why I haven't given her her very own thread, but someday.... when she had  clothes... and I'm done with other projects... and maybe have given her a mouth... *sigh*... ah, yes... someday...

OK, so i finished my first poppet, with many headaches- using beads for the eyes which would look ok if i could figure out how to do the eyelids.... soo ...
Can someone tell me where to find the eyelid tutorial? or explain it to me? Also, what size eyes do you use? I can't seem to find any eyes locally and need to order online- and since i can't see them, its hard to guess the size. Any help is greatly appreciated. THANKS!!

I sew, paint unfinished wood, sketch, make jewelry, crochet a bit, loom knit, and sew. Pretty much if I can get my hands on it to learn, then I will know it. Maybe not perfectly, but enough for a hobby.

Your best bet on the eyelid is to cut out a half circle of felt or what ever fabric you'd like and glue it to the front of the eye. Wrap the excess around to the back of the eye and glue it. Easy!

Here's my latest girl...no name yet.

Her dress as well as stole/shrug are adapted from this pattern, which also contains shoe patterns which I haven't tried yet but match up to the poppet feet It also has hair tutorials. I bought this a couple of years ago and then forgot about it.


Yes, I deliberately misspelled poppet in the link so as not to confuse with the real poppet clothes
