So for my first ever swap I did the Invite your partner swap 16 and my partner ( I am not sure who invited who) was Inez. She received her poppet yesterday so I can post now.  I loved making this poppet she went through several different costumes and materials before she finally found the material she wanted. Then I had to wait like 2 1/2 weeks to get in the rivet looking things. But I love her and know she will be loved at her new home. She did not share her name with me but was so excited to go to her new family. So here are her pics
Her steam punk hat with gears (stolen from a cheap clock and painted to look somewhat metal)


Her rivets
Her corset was fun I used the duct tape method of creating a corset but I used medical tape.
Her chain and charm detail (per my husband)
I painted her eyes but my first attempt at eyelashes on a poppet.

Her crochet panties
The package sent to Inez : teddy bear, bookmark, needle book and Candy
My daughter taking her to the post office with me.

Packing up to go to her new home.

 Hope you enjoy thank you for looking and thank you to Inez for a wonderful first swap experience.

She is just beautiful! And so detailed. I just love how every piece of clothing is constructed like a full-sized garment...linings, finished seams, rivets (made of awesome!), etc. And, lace! Loads of gorgeous lace!  Cheesy You are a great swap partner!

She looks fantastic! I love the color of her hair. I think you did a great job with the gears on her hat! I especially love all the little buttons on her shoes and her fingerless gloves! She is rocking the whole ensemble. Great work!
