He turned out so cool and now I'm officially hooked. My niece sadly wasn't interested in her's because she is so spoiled and if it doesn't come from a store she has no interest in it. However, my friend loved her's so much and said she couldn't have gotten a better present. So that made it all worth it again. Thank you Ghillie for giving me the opportunity to make something so cool.
I would ask for it back then. No point giving something that isn't appreciated and that you worked so hard on. And I would tell her that till she can appreciate it you will keep it safe.

Just me though.

You poppet pictured is cute! I love the streaks in the hair!

Anne11 can't wait to see it!

no progress on poppet, i lost some of my fabric, but i found this weird fleece (it IS fleece)
that has no stretch AT ALL one way and a bit the other way. So very un-fleece-like

lol, that's a good poppet fleece then.  Wink
i bought some for my totoro hat and giant plush, and have a bunch left over, but  may use it for the challenge, we'll see.

moriko_kitsune it does stink when you put hard work into something just to have it not appreciated. I find myself being selective about who gets the things that I made. I wish I was not like that but I hate to see something I worked hard on taken for granted or even worse not taken care of at all. I crocheted a doll for my niece and a matching one for my daughter a while ago and my daughter ignored if (she was only 2 at the time) but now she plays with it quite frequently. so maybe your niece will appreciate it later when she looks back and realizes the hard work you put into it. Also love your poppet he is adorable great work.

I'm going to loose my mind if I don't find skin toned poppet skin Angry I'm opening up sign ups for the poppet swap, and I have been looking for poppet skin ever since I started the idea for this swap (back in fall of last year). I found a black velour that I will be using for my panther family, but for other people I need skin tones Undecided Can you believe the Joanns nearby doesn't have *any* seude??? I mean, really Tongue

you COULD bleach the dye out of the black and then dye it with Rit dye, but it might not bleach evenly, or take the dye to well.

If anyone is interested, I just opened sign ups for a poppet swap http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=335708.0

I think that with the fabric I have, the bleach would take off the velour.

i've used sweatshirt material for poppets and have had pretty good success. you might be able to find the skin tones you are looking for.

hi  Smiley  i 'm working on my first poppet(made a few mistakes like sewing the tail on backwards so when i turned the body the tail was on the inside~ Tongue ) and i'm at the point where i need to sculpt the toes and fingers. just wondering what is the best thread to use? the thread that i sewed the poppet with or embroidery thread? also do i add the eyelashes and lids on before i attach them to the head? i can't wait to finish her even though jointing sounds like it'll be hard and the head and hair scares me Embarrassed making this poppet is so fun even when mistakes happen. i would love to join a poppet swap later on when i make a few more then i'll know that i'll be able to make a good poppet to swap. thanks for any info.  Smiley

I like to use embroider floss in the fabric color for sculpting the fingers and toes. It seems stronger and blends in well.
As for eyes I like to stick the lids on before I put them into the head and then add the lashes when I'm done fiddling with the poppet so they don't get ruined. They are easy to add with a pin and some glue.
Use the pic tute that the link is for on the first page. I found it so super helpful when I first started jointing.
