I had slowly been collecting bits and pieces for my army of poppets I wanted to make, picking up eyes and buttons and yarn when sales came around. I had nearly everything in place; but I could never seem to find flesh-colored alova suede.

None of the fabrics stores around ever had any that didn't have embroidery or some sort of embellishment, and nothing else seemed to come along that would make the perfect poppet army.


And then it appeared.  Shocked


One day after unloading a truck that came into my work (I work at a Jo Ann's), I saw it. A tiny little bolt of four yards of this super soft microsuede in the PERFECT flesh tone. It crushed my heart when I saw it was five dollars per yard.


And then! After Christmas, when my wallet was nice and fat, the 50% off red tag sale came around! I immediately purchased it and began to sew like a mad woman!



After two days of sporadic work, my first poppet was born!


Meet Mr. Raymond Toro, the lead guitarist of My Chemical Romance!




He's currently in the nude, but hopefully in the next few days he'll have some nice black jeans and a little black tee-shirt.  Cheesy





His hair has to be my favorite part. It's so full and soft; something I was afraid that I wouldn't be able to obtain and keep him from being too top heavy.



Thanks for looking!

he looks adorable! I can't wait to see him with clothing on! I love the yarn you picked for his hair. I'm not really a fan of the band but I think the doll is great! Awesome job!

Oh. My. God. I LOVE HIM. You won't believe this, but I am in the process of making a Gerard Way doll. The second I saw his hair I was like hmm, that kinda looks like Ray Toro. You are a goddess. I hope my doll comes out half as good as this did. Smiley You rock.

He's really cute!  You should make him a loincloth to wear while he is waiting for his rocker duds, LOL!
