thanks guys, but the problem is I'm handsewing! Is there any way to stop overstretching hand sewing? Probably not. -_-

I should have my two poppets up later, I just have to find a camera!

The stretching won't happen becasue of sewing it will happen becasue of the stuffing. And with poppets you want them fat and fluffy or they get wrinkly. If you use an iron on interfacing and hand sew very small stitches, Do at least 2 rounds on each piece (with the second round going in between the first row of stitches.) I think it will look great!

I was just going to say that using a backstitch might work...but, two rows of stitching amounts to about the same thing.  Wink

oh I see what you mean by interfacing now.  Roll Eyes I'm a bit of a crafting noob still, heh. I'll see if I can get my hands on something like it, it might be difficult living in a  teeny town in the middle of nowhere  Tongue
Inez- I do use a small backstitch, I'm still perfecting it, it's getting neater with every doll I do, lol. You should see the first sock doll I ever made, such a mess.  Embarrassed

Ok she is done!  I did get her made in 48-hours like I intended but I took an extra half-day to get her clothes "just right." Here is a teaser photo:

And here is the link to her page with LOTS of photos!!!

I just wanted to say "thanks", by the way, to you, lovesclutter, for emailing me that pattern a few days ago so I could make my poppet!  You were such a big help in answering my questions and getting back to me so quickly!  Your such a "doll"!!  Thanks!!  Grin Grin Grin

Just so you all know, I sent snazzlecraft the boobie parts. How did they come out? She is such a beauty.

lovesclutter: The boodies came out good.  I learned one thing though...bodysculpt the torso BEFORE adding the arms!  Her boobies ended up a little wompy because I pulled the thread sooo tight when I connected the arms to the torso.  It made it harder to sculpt the boobies with the arms on too.....I did manage to make them look pretty good though.  next time I will stuff the boobies a little tighter too AND sculpt them BEFORE I add the arms.  And I may not pull so tight on the thread when I connect the arms.  Live and learn.  Overall though I am super happy with the results and glad I stepped out of my "comfort zone" a little to make this beautiful poppet!!  There will certainly be many more to come!!

Yes, I sculpted the boobies first, and the arms came loose. SO you just have to do what works best. Cloned Bravo did one and it came out perfect. My last girl I did came out well too.

It is just so hard to believe that is your first. Your girl is amazing. Cool
