Here is my first poppet! I had so much fun making her. I learned so many new technique and can't wait to make another one.
Thanks to ghilie for the poppet pattern and AlwaysInspired for her great Eye Ball Tutorial: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=336044.0

It is better to have crafted and failed then never to have crafted at all.
Yes, I am stalking the Toys and Playthings board. Thanks for noticing!
I'm cheating on Craftster with Pinterest. It's ok though. There's overlap.

You did a great job!  I've never made one before, but I got the pattern for a poppet from Ghilie recently, and I'm have to find time to start it.   Cheesy

She is so cute!
And I can't believe that she is your first!
I really like your use of alwaysinpired's eye method, it turned out really great... And as someone else mentioned, was it difficult?
I def. think my fav. part of hers would have to be her ears though...

The two things I had problems with was I cut the holes a little to big on one side. I didn't take into account that if you take out some of the stuffing it will make the hole bigger/deeper so you have to be careful making the hole. Start by cutting the hole half the size of your eye ball, then take out a little stuffing andpush the eye in. You will have to use a little force to get it in but it looks better that way then having gaps between your eyes and face. Also I used way too much glue, a little crazy glue goes along way you don't have to worry about them falling out, the fabric hold them in really well.
