Despite me having a lot of unfinished crafts that need to be finished, I'm going to start one more! I've just browsed through some of the photos in this thread and I'm truly inspired and VERY excited to make my very first poppet!!
I bought some half ball cover buttons yesterday and I have some white felt on hand. Will go through my stash to see what other fabric I have that might work. Whooooooooooooooooo!!

I'm new to craftster and feel like I've been missing out my whole life on such a wonderful sub-world. So excited about making my first poppet. I am in absolute awe of the mad hatter poppet created by SunflowerSmiles, what genius!! Warm and excited regards from Cape Town, South Africa!

Hello everyone. I just wanted to pop in and say hi and also thank you ghilie for the pattern for the poppet. I will be gathering supplies and making an attempt at my very first one. I must say I'm a little intimidated though. My first attempt at a cloth doll was slightly better than a total train wreck.  Roll Eyes We shall see what happens. All of you ladies have posted some incredibly awesome poppets and if mine comes out a third as good as all of yours I will be really happy. Smiley  Take care and have a good day...

Exactly what I was going to post here, except for the part where it says that the first attempt was a train wreck. I haven't even had a first attempt yet  Grin I started sewing last november and so far I have been making simple clothes for myself, and bags. Once I have the materials gathered, I am going to go for a poppet attempt.

Recently 'discovered' sewing machines and now I am addicted. I have been making clothes and bags and I want to try to make poppet sometime soon.

Well I found some blue fleecy material in my stash and I've made a start! So far I have 2 arms and 2 legs which came out great! Can't wait to do the rest!

It was like an epiphany when I found craftster!  Welcome! you are going to love it here!


Those poppets are great! I can't wait until I get the time to make my first... I hope the felt I chose is firm enough...  (I was being frugal... don't want to spend the big bucks on material until I know I can  manage a decent one)

I went out and tracked the town high and low for some suede. I am actually quite shocked i found some on a Sunday! Eagerly awaiting my pattern and more supply shopping tomorrow. What do the felt poppets look like?

Snaps And Dragons Great poppet she is so cute and I am sure your friend will love having her with her on her adventure.

Mishdafish Welcome I am glad that you found craftster I was so happy to find this site I have been so inspired to do things since on here. I love being able to ask questions and to enjoy the talents of others, since I have no crafty friends it is nice to find kindred spirits.

Started poppet for a IYP swap my first swap I am so excited but a little intimidated my partner is INEZ and she does some amazing poppets. Wish me luck.
