Here is my newest poppet I made for FoxyBlue for the Invite Your Partner Swap. She likes fairies and the color orange. and FoxBlue has blond hair and blue eyes so that's where I started my inspiration from.





Headpiece I used Donella feathers tutorial http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=364681.0
For the feathers I used 4 layers of the same sheer fabric that the dress is made from. I sewed them with free motions, sewing to a long piece of fabric. I layered feathers and fabric as I sewed, then added a couple foil cut out leafs and a button.


Eyes I bought a set of 14mm glass eyes from eBay I made two holes where I wanted them on the face and pushed them in. Then I cut out two eye lids and added heat and bond to them, glued on the eye lashes on the edge then I ironed them down into place. I needle sculpted the corner of the eyes tight to hold them in place.


Gibbous Dress

Dress - My inspiration was this Elizabeth dress http://www.gibbousfashions.com/shop.php?inv=10
I made the dress in two pieces. First the skirt I measured my Poppets waist and added two inches on both sides, then cut out a two inch wide piece of fabric. I free motioned sewed layers after layers of sheer fabric and ribbon. For the top, I pinned a piece of fabric to my poppet and outlined the top onto the fabric, I added 2 inches on both sides then free motioned little squares of fabric and ribbon all over. Then I sewed the top to the bottom and added more fabric over the joining seam. When that was all done I pinned the dress on the Poppet nice and tight. On the back I placed the zipper over top of the pinned-on dress and outlined where to attach the zipper. I cut away all the extra fabric and then sewed the zipper on.

wings are magnetic and attach to her neck

Wings - I made a wing frame out of wire. Then I sewed my organza fabric to the frame using my sewing machineYES my sewing machine, I know there a lot of you that might think Im crazybut it works great. I used invisible quilting tread centred my wire in the middle of my presser foot and using the widest zigzag stitch. I pulled the fabric a little to keep it tight while I was sewing, I then cut the fabric off leaving about inch border, then made cuts all around the border, then over a candle melted the fabric to make a feathery effect. I also burned some holes into the wings and then painted them with gold glitter.

Wow, well this is gorgeous! Please talk details to us, like how you did the eyes, what you changed about her face, nose, ears, etc. She is just stunning. What's going on with that headpiece, those are terrific faux feathers! And the dress... hope you made one in your size too!

What sort of fabric did you use for her skin? I think that it kinda looks like fleece...

Just awesome, loved reading the details. I saw that feather tutorial when it was first posted and thought it was gorgeous, so nice to see it again. Hope you send her a link so she can see your interpretation, you did an incredible job with those. With everything, really.

Honestly I'm not sure what the fabric is. I got this fabric in a box of fabric from a garage sales. Its a thin stretchy fabric thats soft on one side and shiny on the other side.  I use iron on interfacing on all my poppet piece to make the fabric stronger and less stretchy...I have used this fabric for all 4 of the poppet I made and still have enough to make a couple more. I will be sad when I finally run out Cry

Marvelous.  Love the shape of the dress, the headdress, the hair, and all your alterations to the poppet pattern are wonderful.  Love how she seems to have eyebrows!  Thanks for sharing the details! Cheesy
