MommytheMaid, that's brilliant! I should have cut two bodies and worked assembly line style!

That's what I do Too! Fortunately I don't have anyone I have to share my poppets with though, so when I do make some for myself, I always end with with 2  Grin... I have a second body all sewn up from when I was sewing McBec27s poppet, I ran out of stuffing though so I didn't get any further than that...

Week 3 check-in (May 27th- June 2nd):

I'm still a ways behind everyone  Tongue I'll finish before the send out date for sure though. Had to have 6 fillings put in my teeth today, a root canal started last week, and I'll get 6 more fillings next week! So lots of down time to sew lol

I have a second doll on the go also. I started her at the same time as the other, just because i had enough material left over. I had to stop making her as I ran out of jointing thread.
She will have to wait though, as I want to get this one finished and sent off on Monday.

Ohhhh... running out of time! If I can finish packing tonite after everyone in the house is in bed, I will try and sneak in some time to finish her hair... I think her outfit is going to have to wait till the 8th. Should be ok - have the materials and the vision, just need to get 'er done.  I've decided that I don't hate the "cat iris" eyes any more because there's more surface area for color!!  I'm really enjoying making custom eyes!

Checking in (really like that you do an official check-in instead - the other swaps I've been in have just said you had to, but not really paid much attention to if you did or not). I am making progress. not as fast of progress as I'd like to be making, but still progress. Right now I am stuffing. Still need to work on eyes and hair and clothes. And I am hoping to finish this weekend, but it seems a little optomistic at this point. We'll see, it could happen. Smiley

That is brace!  Ihave always wanted to try doing it that way, but have always been too afraid. I suppose that if your poppets always turned out to be around the same size though, you wouldn't have a problem.

Well thats always nice to hear- I thought that people might think it was a bit of a booger... Wink I thought it best to enforce such a rule because in the first round we ran into a lot of problems with flaking, lack of communication and such  Undecided. But luckily this round we got a really great batch of friendly swappers  Cheesy.
