I don't see that it would be a big problem. I'd put the doll head first in a thin sock, or in the toe of knee highs. That's keep the yarn hair from going crazy. Maybe let her air dry or something, might be better for the plastic eyes.




Why is it, whenever I want to make a poppet/punkin, I forget where I put the stupid jointing needle? Has anybody seen it?

Never fails either I put all my poppet stuff together and leave it all in a box and then some how when I go to get something out of it for poppeting it isnt there. We have Trailer Trolls that come out when we are not here and take things I swear. It wouldnt be so bad if they just told us they took it. it is the constant looking for something.

I love everyones poppets and punkins! So cute and creative! I noticed a lot of people make these for their kids and was wondering how they wash up? I don't know much about alova, mole, etc.
I had to wash one as my dog stole it and slobbered it. I put her in a pillowcase and washed on gentle. I also dried her in the drier. This was after she had eyelashes and painted eyes.
I didn't put anything else in the washer and added a towel to the drier.

Good luck to everyone on finding their supplies! I have furry goblins I call "cats" that knock my craft supplies all over the house. Especially the small supplies I need right away to finish a project. Roll Eyes

I finally took pictures of my poppet!



Seren is completely hand sewn, which is why she took me so long to finish. Tongue



She is a star polishing fairy (I made up a whole back story for her), and I even made a pair of goggles for her (eye protection is very important when polishing stars!).
Thanks so much for this awesome pattern, ghilie! I've never sewn anything this complex looking before. Smiley

LOL, CB, I don't think I really lose things (cept my sanity and that was lost years ago),they just take meandering journeys to goodness knows where. Probably to be in a fantasy land that doesn't have a grumpy old lady saying "Now where the heck did you disappear to this time." (Well that is the polite version).

Thanks for the input!

And I know about little fuzzy theives! When I have to pin large projects, I do it on the floor. My little girl cat loves my shiny, pearly pins. She notoriously creeps up on the fabric, lays down and when she thinks I'm not looking, proceeds to pull the "pretties" out with her teeth. When I yell at her, she hunkers down, ears flat, eyes half closed (she knows she's in trouble), grabs another pin and runs. She's such a brat! She then repeats til the item is finished.

LOL, rideit! I have cat who gets hyperfocused on my knitting needles when I'm knitting. I have to be careful she doesn't attack them! Wink

Thanks craftylittlemonkey, Belladune, and meleriffic!

my cat likes to help keep my yarn untangled when I am doing crochet or hair wigs for the poppets. I will end up with it strunded across the couch if I walk away with it out.

Just finished two poppets for the Significant other poppet swap cant wait to send out Monday morning. Gonna be a small gallery there were only 4 swappers but gonna be a great one. Cant wait to see what everyone has made.
