Eliea I didn't recognize you. Wink Hope you are feeling better.

Aquasnow, you may be able to oil your own machine too, some manuals have instructions for cleaning and oiling. I also was working on a poppet in this very fuzzy yellow material and it got fibres in the air and everywhere. I cleaned my machine out the best I could when I finished sewing that.

I have a free motion foot, but not brave enough to try that yet. Can't wait to see what we all make. I'm printing patterns today to start on a poppet for my mother.

I can't wait to see the yellow poppet.  I don't like yellow but my 14yr old does.  She wants a poppet because I have used her favorite jeans that were quite holey where they shouldn't have been for jeans for my nieces poppet.  I made a poppet for a birthday present for one of my 9 yr olds good friends birthday yesturday, and her other good freind (these 3 girls are never seen with out the others) comes right up to me and says "What, you have never made me a poppet all you have ever made me is"(and she goes down the list of what I have made her).  I also made a bag to put her Poppet in and ice cream cupcakes that her mom asked me to make.  The other girls birthday is in October and she told me she wanted a poppet, bag, icecream cupcakes, not to forget.  Her 18 yr old sister comes over to find her mom seen the poppet (she knew I made it) "You need to make me one of these for my room" I have had to make her everything that I have made her sister.  Last weekend we had to go to a Sweet 16th birthday party for another girl on the road.  Yesturday she asked me why I didn't make her a poppet for her birthday.  I didn't think she would want one.  She said I better get hers made pronto. 

The little girl that I am making a poppet for her 2nd birthday, keeps trying to take every poppet that I make for herself.  Her birthday isn't until August but I think that she is going to have to have an early birthday present.  Every time she sees them she looks at me "mine" "please".

Also yesturday was part of our city garage sale day.  I didn't go since I had to have things done for that party yesturday.  My mom stopped on her way home to see if I was riding with her to the races also to drop off material she bought me at one garage sale to see if I could use it for poppets.  Yep I can.  One she found she said would make a great poppet to match her family room.  So that was a hint to make her one also.  I really need to get going on all these I have to make.  Plus need to find time to make my 9yr olds while they are still in school so it's a suprise on her birthday.

Ok, I finally finished my first poppet.  *sigh*  I had a few minor issues, figured out how to better do things (or at least how NOT to do things) and I'm ready for the next one!  I'm planning on starting today, after I dedicate some time to my current swap that I'm in.  Cheesy  At least I'm mostly done with it...I think.  LOL!  Anyways, on to the link and a teaser pic
Maleah, HM's first poppet

Soooo WOOOO! I finally finished my 2nd poppet... This fabric is not fun to work with... it freyed alot and wound up messing up the pattern cause it freyed apart all the dang time (you can see by what I mean on her right ear)

Anywho, here are pics of her!

This is my 2nd time making a poppet, my 2nd time ever trying to sew something, my 2nd time using a pattern.  The dress is my first attempt at making any sort of clothing, so please forgive it's roughness... I tried making the easy peasy dress but I got lost after it said "baste it to the poppet" cause I have no clue what that means... So I improvised and "laced" it to the poppet.  LOL !!  I attempted to turn it into a corset but I dont think it worked out that well...  I wish I had elastic.... this skirt would of turned out better.

Oh and she's suppose to have "dreads" for hair but I dont think it turned out right... I meant for her to have longer hair but I guess I didnt make the yarn long enough for elbow length hair.. Ah well, Im just glad it turned out half way decent.

How I got the dread look was I got the fun fur yarn, and I grabbed 5 strands together and made a strand of chains.  I gave her 10 sets of chains, but I think I should of done 20, but next time I'll make her a twin sister with more hair lol

Sorry the quality of the pics wasnt that great, the pics were taken from my camera phone.

Aquasnow- I think she came out great, esp. with you using that kind of material! I really, really, love that dress!

Eliea- I was just thinking about you! I hope you're feeling better.  Smiley

I am feeling much better. I posted more details on my Deviant art journal:

Just so I don't clutter the board with my illness details which are not poppet related.

I have been playing with our new camera and taking pictures of craft things I forgot that I made.
I'm about to go flood the boards with craft pictures. Smiley
