Introducing my very first poppet, who is as yet un-named.
Shes full of mistakes, but that makes me love her even more.
I couldnt find most of the materials (being in the UK) and so improvised- not the best idea!
Please ignore the loo roll in the background, I have a cold and am full of snot (I know, Im such a classy bird!)
As you can see, my lack of suitable materials have resulted in a wonky faced ET/feline looking head. The poor thing is crying out for eyelids, but I just cant get the material to jam down the sides of the eye fixings. Am half tempted to paint them on!
...which looks fine from the side.
As I could not find any doll joints (damn being in the UK) I used the eyes to joint her, which resulted in biiiiiggg hips which stuck out too much so had to be sewn around the joint to pull them in a bit.
Crappy mobile phone shot without macro, (Ive no idea how to flip the photos the right way around).
Finally, thankyou Ghille for sharing the poppet pattern, the woman is a goddess.
