I made Sparkle the Winter Mouse for the Silly Santa Swap.  She's a shy one...
Fabric: White Alovasuede from JoAnn's, 70% off cuz it was a "halloween" fabric.  Whatever. 
Eyes: 10mm black eyes from Hobby Lobby.
Dress: Freeform crochet dress made in double crochet with Bernat Cool Crochet from Walmart.  Trim is Yarn Bee Party Girl.
Petticoat: White eyelet fabric with white cotton pleated trim.
Hair: Would you believe the DH bought me this yarn?  He has awesome taste.

Approx. a foot tall, with a pipe cleaner in her tail, she is a modified version of my poppet pattern, craftalong found here: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=205341.msg2309835;topicseen#msg2309835

why oh why didn't I do that swap?  I love this poppet, I want one sooo bad!  I could try and make one, I suppose, but she could never be as cute as this!  Wisted, added to profile, clicked "this rocks" because she's soo damn cute! 

and kudos to the DH for the yarn/hair pic, its great!
