My Aunt participates in the secret peer activity at work each year. Each year I make her reveal gift to her secret peer. This year I made a poppet to resemble her secret peer's son. His name is Kinley.
I had to edit this to add this photo! The little guy with his new friend!

The picture is a bit dark, as I just finished him on time and was trying to beat sun down. (The reveal is tomorrow!)

Here is a close up taken with flash. His eyes are actually brown, but the flash washed them out to green.

A profile shot just because I thought it was so cute!

Thanks for looking!

I love that grin he has on his face! I agree with Littlezo...I want to reach out and mess up his hair - those curls are so inviting. Your poppets are so cute, AlwaysInspired!

Thanks all! His hair is actually just black simply soft acrylic yarn brushed out. I thought and thought about how to get the right little fro look and this seemed to work out the best.

OH, he is great. How do you brush the yarn. I've tried sewing a weft and using the cat brush (yeah, I know, but I cleaned it first very good) and that seemed to work, but took forever. I've been wondering for quite awhile how to unravel yarn.

Your peer's son is going to be very happy, and maybe he/she can get some action shots.

I actually use my own hair brush to brush it out. Cleaned first and after to get all the yarn fuzzies out! Some yarn brushes better than others. I find that Caron simply soft brusheds way better than red heart. It just takes a bit of patience and a lot of quick brushing.
