seriously? man ive been looking for 2 years for an acceptable girl to go with my guy... and they are all just too expensive or not cute enough... but anyway.... the poppets are just as attractive to me and there's no limit on how many i can really afford because i stocked up on fabric and stuff with my other dolls.

edit: and i dont have to look at them and think "man, i could have gotten myself a car/laptop/game system/etc. with that....."

I have bjd's too. Well, one. I've been looking for years at another (I've had my girl for 3 years) but I just can't get my head around the cost. I only afforded the first as a 21st birthday present. But Poppets are so cute and fun, I can't wait to finish my first one. Her hands look better now, though at the moment her legs are removed to sort out her feet. Once they're done I've picked out the wool for her hair so I can get on with that. I got eyes by butchering a teddy from a second hand shop and everything else was stach material so she's only cost me about 1 in total so far, though I'll want a better fabric then old t-shirt next time XD

Anne11 just make sure to place your stitches tight and close together if sewing by hand. Cant wait to see all the firsts.

So many ideas so little time. Will I ever get them all done?

After years of reading this thread i decided to start a poppet, its my first time doing something like this ... and i have to say for me it was a HUGE pain to put all the body parts togeter, is there any tutorial for that? I read the one we all used but since english is not my 1st language, some parts were complicated, can i use glue? lol

Beth, thanks for the info on the stitches. i make hand sewn teddy bears and i use a small back stitch for them so that's what i'll try with this poppet. hopefully i'll have a good sewing machine by the time my alova fabric gets here. the felt that i have feels like there's too much stretch to it so i think i'll hit the fabric store(if the snow ever lets up here. Canadian winters ,blah)to find something more suitable.Just another quick question, freezer paper.... is it called something else here in Canada as i can't seem to find it or is there something else i could use? thanks for all the help ~Anne~  Smiley

I'll be sewing by hand since my sewing machine quit and I'm looking at getting a new one.
Seriously, I got this hand held sewing machine for Christmas because my big machine crapped out on me and its a piece of junk, hardly sews a straight line and certainly wont go around tight curves. DON'T GET ONE! I'm hand sewing myself and although it looks a little... not perfect, it's doing ok. I've been using a very small backstitch to get it done.

I think my biggest problem is that I'm using a fabric that has no stretch at all. Oh well, its just a test for now, I'll have pictures soon, maybe.
