These gals are beautiful. I love their hair, i have some wool like this i am going to have to try it now.
Their outifts are fab.

Tell me about it with last minute. I was up all night putting together the finishing touches to some. Of course both my sewing machine and over locker decided to play up too!!

Great job.

The yarn I used for their hair is great because you can crochet a wig and it looks like short curly hair. I just love the texture of it. I am so glad I picked them up earlier on in the year.
My favourite thing about their clothes is the skirts. The hearts ones are tier/gypsy skirts and the purple/green/blue one is a 3/4 circle wrap around skirt.
I also like to give them accessories so one has a tote bag while the other has a backpack.
Thanks again and I hope your sewing machine and overlocker work soon

I'm a craftster newbie, and joined because my 17 yr old daughter really wants a coraline doll. I found this site after googling and came across the "poppet"...never really heard of them before, but think they are cute!

Just a quick question....how do attach the hair? And where did u get the pattern for the doll?

I've made rag dolls, and always look forward to new challenges! Can't wait till I'm on here long enough to do a swap!!!

Hiya Lindag35!

I got a book for Christmas from the wonderful, DH, "Stuffed" volume 2.  He got it at Barnes & Nobles & it's got all sorts of instructions on how to make stuffies, etc.  On pages 32 & 33, is one called "Little Me", inspired by the movie Coraline.  It's got a great, easy to follow tutorial! 

will do personal swaps, please.  i have tons of fabrics..you have?? wanna trade?

Hi Linda,
The original thread is http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=205341.0
There is a heap of patterns, instructions and many, many more dolls.
Two of the last dolls had their hair done in wefts. This is quicker then crocheting a wig and then attaching the hair to the wig.
There are so many different variations of this doll that I am sure you could make a Coraline doll easily, or find someone who has.
hope that helps

Halt is his name and he is made as a companion to the first doll I made, Heather.
He is my first boy poppet.

I have a little boy cut out and waiting to be a companion for Darcy (my first) Poppets can be as infectious as normal dolls!!! We love them Smiley

Rasita, he is great. Love his head of hair and outift.
May i ask, does he have his 'parts'?
