If you use the woven microsude, make sure you make the seam allowances larger and then clip the curves.  I've used that before, and it tore apart on the smaller, more delicate areas. 

... That was totally meant to read knitted microsuede! But yes, if it were woven I would probably use fray-check or (more likely) double the seams for extra strength. Fraying sucks.

Wow!!!!! So much talent!!

I have been stalking this thread (I may have skipped a couple of pages) but WOW.

I have the pattern and I want to make a poppet now too!!!!

I am slowly collecting supplies (buying the online) and waiting for them to arrive.

I also need to buy a sewing machine. But I believe it will be well worth it!!

I am thinking a black swan poppet set Smiley

Once I am acquainted with the pattern I would love to join a swap, I have not done any swaps yet!!!

How do you get that lovely blush colour on the poppet's cheeks?Huh?

I can not find freezer paper in Australia and our paper reams come covered in a plasticy cover (I checked the ones at work) or in Boxes..

Could I use baking paper, or tracing paper. Because they have a waxy side

Freezer paper has a plastic side - I'm not sure wax would work. But, you can always trace the pattern onto the wrong side of your fabric with a fabric pencil or chalk.

The blush, correct me if I'm mistaken, is just blush.  Wink I think.

The blush is just blush or a little bit of pastels, whatever is in your closet.

Freezer paper has a waxy side and a paper side, which is why it works.  I'm unfamiliar with baking paper.  Maybe you could ask the butcher in your supermarket?

You could always test it.  Just iron the waxy side onto some scrap fabric and see if it sticks and peels off nicely.  Dont touch the wax part to your iron though.

So things are crazy right now, but I would love a poppet swap after the first of the new year. I would be willing to organize one too.

So many ideas so little time. Will I ever get them all done?

Awesome!!

I might just give it a whirl!! You don't know if you never try Smiley

The blush looks great. I did not realise that it was actual blush. I am still working my way through reading the thread.

I would love to do a swap Smiley I do not have a replacement sewing machine yet!

But I would love to join.

Oh no, a swap!  I've been secretly stalking this thread for a while, but I'm not really a sewing kinda guy, even though I have been wanting to get into making poppets for a while...  I may just have to stalk the gallery!
