I would be interested.  I think giving some size parameters might be a good idea.  Personally I would prefer a mini poppet for a medium ami.  What would that be?  Maybe around a 7-9 inch doll?  Is that a doable size for a poppet?  Sorry, I don't sew so I'm clueless.

Looking to swap for a Skeleton rag or cupcake style doll for my 5 yr-old son!  I can crochet just about anything under the sun in exchange!

7 to 9in tall for a poppet.... I could probably manage that...thankfully I've got small fingers and a TON of a chopsticks for stuffing =D

I'm gonna just chime in with my two cents real quick!!!  It is doable, but speaking from personal experience, the issue with making poppets on a smaller scale, is that a lot of detail is lost.  My poppets are 16-18 inches tall, and when I thought making a mini one would be easier, I was SO SO SO wrong....little clothes are the hardest thing in the world for me to make.  

I would do this swap, but I'm going to be planning a wedding, so I won't have time Sad

I definately agree with Lanikin's.

As I have made smaller dolls (not poppets) and I find small clothes really tricky to make. Also the fingers and toes will be a massive pain to try and turn, due to the size.

Congrats on your weddings!!

I don't know about sewing, but I would have to agree that making things smaller is definetly not always easier, for me larger is so much easier with an ami.  I would say a regular size poppet, or really whatever size you and your partner agree upon.  I would think a tiny one would be totally adorable if you could pull it off.  And the ami I would say a large and a small/medium.  I don't know if I'm wrong here, maybe its just cuz I can't sew, but I would think making an ami is sooo much easier than making a poppet which is why I would say 2 amis for 1 poppet.  Does that sound good to everyone??  And YAY!!  The poppet swap is up and running, so that means this one is coming soon.......End of May, beginning of June I think

I did make one smaller poppet for my hubby, so I can def. tell you turning tiny arms n legs is definitely a pain!! It's doable...but painful lol! I've not even tried making cloths for it so couldnt give my opinion on that difficulty level yet >.>

I make ami's , however if need I could try and do a poppet.  I sew a lot and they look interesting, but are there free patterns out there or would I need to buy one?
