Most of us try to use the shortest stitch we can. I can't get these results either. Ghilie is the master (bows down).

Very pretty.  I can't believe the smooth effect people get when sewing poppets.  What stitch do you use when sewing?  Is it a stretch stitch?  What tension?

I think there must be something wrong with my brain.  My immediate thought upon reading her back story and seeing the white rabbit ears was that she looked more like the offspring of Alice and the white rabbit than Alice herself.



The stitch isn't anything special, just a normal old straight stitch that is fairly small.  But, the trick, I think, is the stuffing.  I put AT LEAST half a 16 oz bag in each poppet.  I stuff them with so much stuffing you might think the seams would burst.  Instead of my finger, I use a flathead screwdriver to stuff it, so I can fit even more in and have more control over where the stuffing goes.  These things feel like bricks instead of stuffies by the time I am done with them.

I thought she reminded me of the white rabbit's sister, who was never late for anything, and was already at the queen's party when her n'er do well brother finally showed up.

I think that's the problem with my poppets. My seams DO burst before I get the buggers overstuffed. When I got the steampunk girl from nezbutt I was amazed how solid she was and how perfect all the seams are.

Maybe I should use a smaller stitch.

Anyways, she's really beautiful!!!
