I decided that now my poppet finally has both hair and clothes she deserved her own post. I made her out of an old fleece jumper because I wanted to make a practice poppet out of something cheap in case I messed it up, since I had only just mastered sewing straight lines on my new sewing machine and curves seem a lot harder!

I think next time I will have a go at putting the ears in, and maybe even try some needle sculpting at least to do the feet properly, but I'm really pleased with how she turned out.

She is so cute! I love her wide eyes expression and the beads in her hair just make her so sweet!
You did a great job on her!

Very cute! The fleece seems to work nicely, that's what I've set aside for my first poppet, which I've yet to begin.
She's lovely Wink

Ooh, very nice! 

Good to know that fleece works well...I want to make one for my sisters wedding...complete with mini-version of her actual wedding dress, but I need to make a test one for myself first : )
