puamelia - thanks for the links to the hair tutes!

Here are the 2 sets of poppet arms that I've made. One pair out of fleecy type fabric and the other pair out of an old Tee (both have a little one-way stretch). Just thought I'd show you guys in case you wanted to make a poppet using other fabrics.

I have found in stuffing the nose I am afraid of the sculpty and not sure if you sculpt it then put in the head or sculpt it in the head so I tried using pellets but they move around to much and end up looking like a poppet with acne so I now use a small piece of batting and tie it in a knot and put the pointy end out and since I stuff my head then descide where to put the eyes then unstuff the head I want the batting to stay in place I do a quick hand stitch to the seam alowance to keep in in place I think that would work for the beads as well. Hope that helps.

Inez that is so funny My husband said he would have never thought of that.

I make a small clay cone, put it in the nose and shape it the way I like, add enough stuffing to give the head some shape, then bake it.
Afterwards, I remove most of the stuffing to add the eyes, then restuff that sucker!

I use air dry clay to stuff my poppets nose.  I put a ball of it in the nose then shape it then let it dry for a couple of hours then stuff the head.

I use air dry paper clay to do the nose. I put a tiny ball in stuff the head and then shape it. That is after I have put the eyes in already. Paper clay is super light and dries pretty fast. I really like using it.

I finally got some fabric to attempt a poppet but I could find the original color that I wanted. Cry  I wanted to get peachy skin toned but ended up getting blue instead because that was all they had that I liked. And unfortunately I'm going to have to wait until after my vacation (1 1/2 weeks away Grin) before I can get the rest of the supplies but I am so excited to get started! I hope mine turns out half as good as the other ones here  Embarrassed

Blue is good - Think Smurfs! Turns out that most of the fabric in my stash that is kind of suitable for making poppets is blue! Going to have quite a lot of blue poppets pretty soon!! Hee hee! *Jumping on the blue bandwagon*

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

I have found that I dont like to sew my ears on before stuffing the head and doing the eyes so I hand sew them on before I do the hair so that I can decide

I have green alova that I found when I first started making poppets. It was the only color I found that I liked at the time. So now if I am trying a new pattern out I use the green. Kind of a tradition now.I have a whole family of green poppets.

Megnificent & katara, you could make a whole bunch of Avatars! I'd like to try to make the shaman's red outfit.  Cheesy
