Oh, goodness, it's been too long since I last posted!

Working on a new poppet; she'll be Red Riding Hood and I'm planning a larger Big Bad Wolf to go with her.




I need to work on her entire outfit.  The dress is stolen from my elf and the corset is made of some horrible ex-drapery that is fraying to death even as we speak.

I hate tiny fingers!  She had to have a second set of arms made because I could not ever get two of the fingers to turn in the first arm I made and the second one somehow got magically stained with a big splot of blue, and I ripped through one of the fingers, too.  These fingers are gently wired with 15mm pipe cleaners (the extra fluff makes great stuffing).  I haven't decided if she's going to get 5 fingers or not.  Probably not, even though she has five cute little toesies...

Her hair is exactly the color of Kraft macaroni & cheese and I really like it Cheesy  I crocheted a little wig cap/hat thing and spent more time looping the hair onto it than I did hand-sewing the actual doll.

She looks so dainty.

I can not wait to see her in her full outfit and with her wolf.

I struggle with fingers as well Smiley
I generally swear alot whilst making them.

Holy crust, this thread has gotten huge!  I like the red riding hood poppet.

I've decided I'm crazy and I'm going to attempt to make my blood elf warrior from WoW in poppet form.  I haven't made a poppet in a long time, and I miss it.  I've got the clothes patterns bookmarked, I've got the boot tut bookmarked, and I've got my Elenore pattern.  The only thing I'm worried about is the ears and antennae things.  And the hair.  I'm not very good at hair.

I've been goofing around with this Siamese for months now.  Her halter dress is too small for her in certain key areas, so I'll end up remaking it.

Also, I got my hands on some ugly porcelain dolls and I peeled their wigs off by heating the glue up with a blow dryer.  Kitty likes her blonde pigtails  Cheesy  Shoes are from Walmart's new doll line and fit perfectly!

What a great idea to use the hair from a porcelain doll! She looks great in her braids.

Approaching the finish line on a doll for my sister-in-law.  I promised I'd make her one back in February and got around to actually working on it a couple months ago.  This morning I finished sewing up the pants.  She's 99% ready to go, just need to add snaps to the clothing and attach the wig.

Hey! Long time no see! :3

Well let me show you what I am making!

I got asked to make someone a Fluttershy from the Equestria Girls movie. I am in the middle of a move and couldn't find the yellow I needed. So I grabbed some yellow flannel. Never again. never never. So much fray check. I also had to use Aileen's Fabric fusion for her eyes.

Well she just needs dressed (working on that today) and she'll be ready to go to her new home!


Shy is wearing some of my bjd clothes. She didn't want to be naked.
