I finally finished an outfit for Paige, so I can introduce her properly now. She's my second poppet and this time around I tried the latch hook crocheted wig method for her hair. It works, but I think I'm going to stick to wefts for my poppets. I like having a little more control and a part line and stuff. She might still get more hair added at some point. I still have a bunch of that yarn. Anyway, without further ado, here she is. Hope you like her.




Doesn't she have the sweetest face? The only thing I'd change is that next time I'm going to put wire in the ears to make them poseable. Smiley


Here she's relaxing after her photo shoot. She was tired, even though it wasn't a very long shoot.


Gimp (the photo editor I used) turned her black and white as I was exiting this picture. I caught a glimpse and decided to go back and do it on purpose.

I did mess up her skirt a little bit - this is just the easy peasy dress pattern that comes with the poppet pattern now (thanks Ghilie!), but I did two layers of skirt. And this fabric was kind of fiddly and wanted to gather itself. So the bottom skirt layer looks kind of like bloomers, but I'm ok with that.

Let me know what you think!

I love her hair.  She has the prettiest green eyes.  Very well done.

Her eyes look purple to me, but I love the green hair and the outfit, where on earth did you get music fabric? She looks perfect.

There are instructions with the pattern. PM Ghilie with your email address and join the fun.

She's so sweet, I love her hair and eyes they also look purple to me. I like her dress too!

The pattern isn't difficult and it's free from the lovely ghilie. There is all kinds of info over on the Poppet Along thread, you should definitely check it out.

I remember when poppets first popped up. I can't believe they're still around, but I'm glad they are! Ever-evolving, poppets! Yours is lovely. Her hair looks great, and she would indeed look neat with posable ears!

Thanks everyone! You've all made my day! Smiley 

And Paige is quite excited, too. She also wants everyone to know that she now has panties! I spent yesterday afternoon making panties for her and her sister, Sidney. Smiley
