I too had to hand sew on the head and add a ribbon!  Cheesy Don't feel bad! You may want to add some glue or a few stitches to keep the ribbon in place during play. I did!  Wink

Oh, her little contrast tail is too cute!  I don't think she looks "Franken" at all!  Very nice job.

haha!  Thanks, lil_abi!  She's so cute, it'll be hard to wrap her up and send her to her new home.  The ribbon does a great job of hiding my shoddy stitching...her head is on nice and tight but the seam is a little crooked and a few stitches are visible but nobody will ever know.  mwhahahaha... Tongue thanks again for such a quick and fairly easy project.  I've been trying to work up my nerve to make a poppet.  this has definitely been a confidence builder!

Alwaysinspired, yeah, i put several stitches in the ribbon to keep it in place.  I figured I wanted that sucker to stay put!

I had to hand-sew my bunnies head on too. Which reminds me I still have a bunny I need to finish! the baby I made it for is probably 6 months old now! lol It's stuffed and everything just need the head attached....
I'm going to share a secret with you. Invisible thread. If you make sure all your knots are on the inside and use small stitches you'd never know it's there. I like the coats and clark stuff from walmart in the thinner thickness. Works great! I use it for poppet clothing too. No need to worry about having the exact right color of thread. Now Once I figure out how to use it on my sewing machine I will be a force to be reckoned with!

Thanks!  I am going to pick some up before I start on the poppet.  I wonder why I never thought of it before...I knew it existed.
