So, it is true... I am obsessed with poppets. I have 3 done now and 4(?) on the go. Anyways, here are my 2 latest gals. Both are fairy-is, sprite-ish, mermaid-ish-ness (I also have an obsession with fantasy). I always seem to take their hair-do inspiration from whatever my little sister wears for the day Smiley.

Here is the mer-fairy, you may remember her just as a head from here: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=302028.0 (she could not decide for the life of her if she wanted to be a mermaid or a fairy, so together we came up with her dress bottom which could either consist of leaves or scales. The bodice of her dress is made from this crazy pucnhed-out felt scrapbooking ribbon that I found (actually both of them are entirely clothed in felt). She has a tiny necklace and bracelet set.



Dress bodice close-up:

And this little missy is somewhat of a forest or wildflower sprite. Her skirt also consists of leaves and she is decked out in flowers.

And here are the two besties together:


I am finally feeling like I am making progress with my poppet technique. I am doing better with sewing their heads on (I got a curved needle to help me) and I think that the darker head is the best I have made to date.

And of course here is the link to the poppet along: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=205341.9000 (thanks ghilie!)

I was honestly just in shock when I read that you wisted it... I have never been wisted before (I think)... that is so cool!
Thanks everyone!

you know what would be adorable? I cute little mermaid skirt that she could wear to swim. Smiley
Oh my gosh I can see it in my head.
They are both very pretty and sweet. I love how you did the inner ears too it gives them such a nice shape. Did you sew the colored patch on before you put the ears in the head? or did you do it after?
Love them!

Love them!

I was thinking of giving her a really, really long skirt that consisted of scales that would kinda become a pencil skirt at the bottom and would perhaps look like scales, but then I decided not to do it.

As for the ears, I sew the inner patches onto the ear before I sew the ears into the head.
