So in the process of organizing The Poppet Mini Swap one of the participants received the Mad Hatter Poppet (seen here: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=351153.0). The receiver of the Mad Hatter and I then decided to do a personal swap and I knew right away that I wanted to make Her an Alice in Wonderland doll to go alongside the Mad Hatter.





I made her legs a different colour than the body so it looks like she is wearing stockings and I made my first pair of poppet shoes!


I gave her the little black signature Alice bow/hairband:


And I used alwaysinspired's technique in painting safety eyes (seen here: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=336044.0):

Yay! I was going to ask you for a pic of her alongside the Mad Hatter- thanks! And boy, is she a giant! It looks like she had the "eat me" or "drink me" (I don't know which made her become a giant- I don't think I have ever actually seen Alice in Wonderland before) Wink.

Thanks for the nice comments!

I used craftewoman's peasant blouse pattern for the top of the dress (http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=293606.msg3338629#msg3338629) and I just added a skirt to the bottom of it. I didn't use elastic around the neckline of the shirt like the pattern called for, so I had ribbon ties in the back. I then just added some lace and felt to make the dress details. And I want one of your poppets too (that is when you are not too busy making a ton of poppets for the ami/poppet swap and whatnot Wink)!

Anyways, thanks everyone!
