I had to finally get brave enough to give the poppet/punkins a go! and so i decided to combine one along with one of my favorite styles, gibbous!
Introducing Olivia Fernly 

I needle felted her woolen hair into her head, and also her nose. my kiddo was worried that i was hurting poor Olivia Fernly, but she didnt seem to mind it too much  Smiley

her gibbous style inspired gown blowing in the wind. i love mixing up textures and with her coloration and hair style, it seemed rather fitting to her personality.

thanks for checking her out!  Smiley

She looks great, and I love her little nose. And of course her sense of style. The dress is great!

She's so cute! I love all of the different colors and textures of her hair and dress. It's almost like all of your beautiful sewing scraps magically reconstituted themselves into this darling little creature!  Cheesy Great work!

Beautiful work for a first poppet! I love the contrast of her thick hair and her pretty dress against her dark skin.

Yay for summer!

I really like the color of "skin" you chose, and her dress is amazing!
