Nexbutt, she's incredible!  Love the hair!  ^^

I've had a blast collecting materials (and wondering what surprise my partner has in store for me!) a

Can somebody tell me how to obtain the mini-poppet pattern, though?  I have the full sized one, but I can't for the life of me find the mini version.  Am I just supposed to resize it by a certain amount?  A "poppet" search on here yields a TON of stuff to sift through, lol.

Yep just resize smaller. I have one resized to 1/2 and one that's 3/4. It all depends on how small you want to go. I think the most common is 65% of original? Try looking for the "once you pop" gallerys that's where the minis have become most popular and most people who've made them say what percent they've resized to.

Sorry Silverwing, I was supposed to get back to you about that. The ones I do are usually 70% or thereabouts. The leg measures about 6 1/2 inches. And *ahem* I DO have a little surprise for you, but I can't give you any peaks, not just yet anyway!  Wink

Lovin' that purple hair!  Makes me miss college....

I stopped by Wally World tonight to pick up a couple items, thread, measuring tape, etc. for some other projects.  Seems that the Wally World with the best fabric section in town is finally closing their fabric/trim cutting section.  50% off everything!

I totally scored on some great fabric bargains for Eliea's Gloria!

 Made a poppet. Didn't really like it. Made another. Like much better. I've started on her clothes. She's gonna have 4 outfits, ( I know, I can't stop)
Still need to do her eyes. Sorta kinda doing that know. I was just about to glue on eyelids when I thought to myself - Self, don't ya need to paint those eyes first?
      Why, yes, Self, I think I do.
Sometimes, I worry about me, but then I ignore the feeling til it goes away.


Also, found a great use for those big mini m&m containers. I have one that's the right size for my doll needle. Which is good, 'cause I'm always misplacing it.
Needles and scissors.
Why is it I can put down my scissors, not move even an inch, but the scissors have totally disappeared? Everytime!

Gloria is going to be so thrilled. Smiley I have been working on your poppet. She needs her head stuffed and body put together. Then I get the fun of making clothing for her! I am so excited to get started on that! I drew sketches and did research and I'm really really excited! lol. I'm having a bunch of fun with this one. Smiley

I have Lolly's poppet almost done! The head needs sewn on right now and I plan on doing that today. This poppet has also evolved into the poppet, a pet, and a background prop. I do still need to figure out something for Lolly's girl Stella too!

Okay, got a couple small things done today...we had spring-like weather here this weekend and I didn't want to stay indoors...until I got nailed with the nasty cold virus that's been going around my kids' school.  Grrr...and tomorrow it's supposed to go right back to winter temps so I missed a beautiful weekend.  Oh well...just a few more grueling weeks of winter.

Hopefully if Lil Bit takes a decent nap tomorrow while the older kids are in school I'll be able to bust out my sewing machine and get some real work done.   Grin

sketches?  research?!  I'm starting to feel intimidated.

Here is the photo of Peppa I promised. 


She was playing in the sparkly fabric.  She is really looking forward to a new sister!

I just finished Lolly's large (okay extra large) and plan on making a pet or 2 tomorrow! I'm going to have a really hard time sending Marisela (that is her name Lolly! Teaser for you!)
