Here is my second attempt at poppeting.  The fabric for this one was so much easier to work with than the first one I did.  As long as I didn't touch the right side with an iron.. that melted the beady bits. 

And a close up of the fabric.  It is really soft microsuede with little rubbery dots.  It makes me want to hold him since he has such an interesting texture.

Oh and this is my first poppet - She's a Drow (a dark elf) modeled after a D&D character I used to play.  I made the top and vest on my own but used craftewoman's pattern for the pants.

close up he looks more reptilian, like a toad than an alien. I like him!

 Yes, I agree, a toadish Poppet! A Toappet!!! Awesome find on the fabric!!! I wish I could venture farther than just "alova suede"! It is safe and I am afraid to try anything else while conjuring a Poppet. So kudos those who DARE!!!

He's a cutie - you did a great job.  I also like your drow, she has such an attitude.

It makes me want to hold him since he has such an interesting texture.

Yeah, after I make a poppet I usually sit and pet it for the rest of the night.   Especially if the skin has an interesting texture...  I really don't know what is wrong with me, but I cant help it.  My hubby thinks I'm weird.

Visit http://ghilie.wordpress.com/ for the poppet pattern.

That fabric is so cool! I don't sit and pet it, but, I do coo and sigh over how pretty they are. And yes, all night long!
