I'm not quite sure how it happened. The email I got today, from the man in charge of the contest, said something like "You didn't win the grand prize, but you have won a secondary prize. Also, her arms fell off- sorry about that"... I know when I jointed her I used about 12 strands of dental floss, but my mom figures that people were prolly hugging her or lifting her arms up and whatnot, so that may have caused them to fall off, or maybe the pom-poms weighted them down? I dunno, I suppose I will have to assess the damage when I get some time off of work and can pick her up. I've only ever had joints become somewhat loose when I am constantly standing a poppet up and down, raising their arms and whatnot when I am fitting them for a piece of clothing... It just makes me wonder when exactly they fell off, because if it were towards the beginning of the contest (3 or 4 weeks ago) I could have totally fixed her up, but alas...

I have had that happen also and since i changed to an upholstery thread I haven't had the problem.

But your mum is probably right, and that they may have been moving the arms to see how they worked, etc.
Well done on the giant poppet though, she looks great

I know this isn't the best photo (Taken with phone) But i though it showed well, the height and width difference you can gain by changing your grain/stretch of your fabric.

The red one is a plain poppet pattern with the stretch going width ways she is quite short and fat. Her face has the stretch going diagonal, it gives the jowls. She stands easy

She cream one with no toes is an elenor poppet, again with the stretch doing width ways, and the face diagonal. The elenor poppet comes up just slightly shorter for me. She stands quite easy, but has a very curved back with arms quite far back, so can sometimes need playing with.

The middle cream one is the elenor poppet with the stretch going length ways (except the arms, the fingers go completely wrong for me if i try to do the stretch length way, scary.) As you can see, taller, thinner and the face is thiner, longer and without jowls. Quite a bit harder to stand.

I have not yet done a face with the stretch completely width way, i like the diagonal, but will no doubt have to try it soon.

Hope this helps some peeps  Wink

I always except for my ringmaster have done the stretch to make them taller and skinnier. But I like the look of the shorter chubbier poppet and have maid a mental not to have make one width wise and I like the diagonal stretch to the face. Great job.

I wonder averyg, what size button did you use to them make them that big??? Still awesome.

Mummynat, I love your poppets, they are quite a family. Can't wait to see your new addition.

Today I bought some faux suede, it is extremely stretchy... Both sides are very similar (ie. one side isn't darker or shiner than the other), however, the fabric is pretty static-y... I was just wondering if anyone knew if this would technically be considered alova?

EDIT: I just double checked and one side is clearly more fuzzy than the other, the backside almost looks like a knit. I know it is faux suede because I have used it in the past and it was called that at the store today Cheesy

I doubt it.Right & wrong side are pretty clear with Alova . maybe if you use an interfacing?

 Sorry your cheerleader didn't win. I voted for you! she was pretty.
