Cool undead!   Cheesy   Such attention to details too, great job!   Cheesy    You have me curious though... what's the fool proof way to sculpt abs?    Smiley

Hey, I just noticed, I've only seen 3 poppets!!!  Haven't more than that been recieved??  Come on, you gotta post the pics!!!  I'm beyond excited to get mine Isi!!  I've been looking into trying to make one myself, so I may be pming you with questions since you have the knack for it!!! Do you think a beginner sewer could make one?  I've ordered all the stuff I need I think

You could definitely make it Mama!  Ghilie has excellent step by step directions.  I'm a newbie sewer and had no problem with mine.  Smiley  I haven't tried the fingers that Isi did though.

DOOOOOO EEEEEETTTTTTTT alwaysinmyroom! I wanna see!!!!!!

5 of the poppets went out over seas. 3 to Australia (already sent), 1 to Germany, and 1 to Canada. That's why there aren't more pics in the chainswarm. I only have one more to mail in the USA. I'm pretty sure that bec99 should have received by now (if she was one in the USA) but she might be busy Smiley

Mama, they are so incredibly addictive! Cheesy Be warned!!  Grin Wink But yes, they're relatively easy to do. It really is all in the details of the prep work that make a really successful undead. DOUBLE SEW all your seams is the most important advice I can give. Also also, when you stuff the body, make sure it's ROCK HARD. I mean---seams bursting/fingers hurting/I'm so sick of handling stuffing I can puke rock hard! That way you'll get a less wobbly/squishy friend Wink But they are oh-so cute. I just eat them ^^ I'd be happy to guide you through the process! PM me anytime!

 Those fingers are hard to do UTM, lemme tell ya  Undecided It took several dozen ruined hands to do them satisfactorily but between my husband's attention to detail and my patience we worked out a system to make them turn nicely. Pipe cleaners and suture tweezers are wonderful things, are they not? *smiles beatifically*

Avesthel---the trick to making yummy rock hard undead abs is kind of a "stuffed" pillow technique---times six/eight  Grin You cut out two front pieces of the male undead body and face one of them "right side" out--the fuzzy side. The other piece is behind it on the "wrong" side (on the silky side if you're using alova suede or craft velour). Then you draw directly on the spare fabric where you want the ab lines and sew it down, making a grid of one line down the middle and 8 or ten lines bisecting it horizontally, depending on if you want a six pack or eight pack Wink (Make sure the bobbin thread is the same color at the body skin or you'll end up with colored ab lines.) Next you take a small amount of stuffing and stuff it in between the ab lines, treating them like six/eight little pillows that need to be stuffed. Then you sew down the open sides and cut the spare fabric around the abs away. VOILA! ABS! So simple Smiley
   If need be I'll post a attack later when my camera works Tongue

 Thank you, as always, for the nice compliments ladies. Everyone has been incredibly patient with me, especially our revered leader GatorWrangler. I'm the reason the next round is being delayed  Embarrassed Cry So embarrassing....

I think the technique you use on the abs is called trapunto..it is a common technique used in quilting and embroidery...whudda thought you could use it for a undead!!! Genius!

The technique for those abs sounds MUCH easier than sit ups.
