I know this is not related to poppeting really but I have to share.
So today I was stuffing a poppet and my daughter who is 3 wanted to help so she started by handing me stuffing and then wanted to stuff something by herself. So I quickly got a piece of material and she said she wanted a heart so I sewed up a heart pillow and then she stuffed it and stuffed it well. I just closed it up I am so happy my 3 year old made her first pillow. **tear on check** I am so proud.

Beth8144, that's too cool! LUCK! Inez is awesome, you are so lucyk to have an Inez poppet! I'm looking forward to my girls taking an interest in crafts!

SnapsAndDrangons, great first poppet! Love her hair, great job on the dress.

And welcome everyone, it's great fun here, and addicting.  Have no fear of poppeting, they are fairly amenable to material substitutions, if you can't find everything exactly on the list.  I've substituted velour and flannel for alova, metal buttons with shanks for jointing, upholstery thread for floss, and beads for eyes.  For my first one I couldn't wait so I used regular copy paper and spray glue for the pattern, I hand stitched everything, pulled the stuffing out of an old throw pillow and gave her bead eyes.  I kept her because I can't bear to part with her!

Some of the cutest poppets come when we substitute. That is how we learn new tricks and see if things work or not. I just revamped my first poppet she needed surgery for her neck so I did a remodel will post pics soon.

Welcome to all the newbies. If you have questions dont be afraid to ask even if you think it has been asked before. That is how we have gotten to page 1141.

she looks so proud of that heart!  Isn't it great when our kids can get into the craft with us?  I was waiting so impatiently for my first one to do it, now that he's 5 he's doing sooo much! So glad you guys are into that stage, it's so fun!

So true. My favorite is from a velour shirt. (Azul for the FOC raffle swap ages ago) But I'd never used velour before that doll and didn't know how fun it is to work with! Now I save velour clothing for poppeting. lol

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!

I've finished the body - tried sculpting it but I wasn't happy with the result so I'm going to leave it as is. Nearly finished the head too!

My goodness! Sewing that head onto the neck is *difficult*!!!! Still not sure if i understand sewing the head together, min came out with a very lop-sided head and a very funny right ear, character perhaps?? I have a dull throbbing in my fingers from all the pricks but it's worth it to see it shaping up. Perhaps using upholstery suede was not the best idea for my first poppet, but we live and learn Smiley
