My poppet!  I have to say it wasn't as hard as I thought it would be, but... 

I don't have eyes or joints so I look kinda funky.

My eyes are just pins and my hair isn't attached.  And my dress is killing me because its PINNED to my back!  My mommy promises to fix my hair and my dress, but she doesn't know what to do about my eyes.  Maybe she will paint me some eyes when she gets up the nerve... 

She also says to tell you that she has never made anything like me before, and she made me from butter suede she bought at Walmart.

I hope your mum fixes you soon because you are so adorable and it would be very hard to give you a hug with all those pins  Tongue

I'm amazed that its the first time she has made anything like this. I'm in awe  Smiley

Some button eyes would look really cute I think. Something small and round. you could even do eyelashes and "eyeshadow" to dress them up a bit. Smiley
She's super cute! I really love that hair!

I love the colors. The hair is great. She's very cute.
I think I would use some black buttons with shanks. If you want color you can put a little paint or nail polish on them. Instead of attaching each button to the fabric sew the buttons together stitching thru the head. Follow? Similar to how you attach the joints going thru the body.

So sweet! I'd like to give you a little hug!

I think painted eyes would be adorable, but whatever you decide to do, I look forward to seeing the results!

For eyes, maybe you could try painting them onto felt and then gluing them on with liquid stitch, that way, you can paint a few different styles of eye and test them out BEFORE you're committed to something Smiley

Yay, more poppets!  Finally, a good use for all that fun-fur I have.

Eco-friendly items, patterns, hippies, and more.

I'm on Ravelry, too!
