Wow T, you had a full day, sounds like you and the wee one deserved a good nap!
Luck you to be finished and sent. Smiley

As for me, picked up 3 different fabrics at the store on Wed., will try to do something tonight. Some heads maybe, maybe paint some eyes. I cleaned off my work space and dug out some supplies. May need to run out and get thread tomorrow.

Sometimes it amazes me I get anything done in my workspace hahaha
See how tiny it is XD enough room for me to sit and stick 1 foot under the table to hit the pedal n thats it hahahaha!!!






It's a lot neater than it looks usually, the baby gets into my stuff and tries to help XD I hide my -inprogress- work ontop of her dresser where she cant get to it otherwise she pulls my pins out and tries to repin for me XD guess i'm doing it wrong rofl!

Havent actually slept in days, just hour naps here n there...i feel like a zombie! Was going to start on her quilt this week but if i dont manage to get a full 6hour stretch to sleep (without being woke up ha ha) i think her quilt is going to be waiting some more....

Cant wait to see what everyone else comes up with =D or till that box gets there, least now I dont have to worry about the baby tearing her apart or getting her dirty ^.^

This is slightly off topic, but where did you get your stands from Tenitsu??
 I love the top hats btw.

My head is completed and my body is done. I am soooooo happy with it Smiley

I decided to redo my legs as I was not happy with the first, second, third or fourth lot. Lol. I am now happy with them!!! WOOT now to re try the arms. I have been through nearly a yard of fabric.

Nahhh I wouldnt say its offtopic at all, its poppet related XD ish

I got mine from Crafts2000 (apparently i had one of those around my area hahaha) I think they were like $1.29 a piece for the medium ones (larges hang the poppets by their necks rofl)...I think Joanns had them too but Crafts2000 was cheaper...

Also snagged a cute wooden one, I use the white metal ones just for crafting, the wooden ones are so much cuter and I use them for displaying

Stuck the top hats on them just because I guess XD

Cant wait to see what you come up with bambam! With all the trouble your having with arms n legs, you've got me entirely intrigued!

Thanks!!! I was doing them wrong. Lol. I was trying to sew the toes on a seperate piece of fabric and attach them. Lol. I am not good at following instructions.

I live in Australia, we don't have a Joann's and our craft stores are over priced. Might see if I can find some online.

I think Bambam might be making me an OCTO-POPPET with all those arms and legs Shocked  Cheesy

What do you all do with the bits that don't make the grade? I was thinking it would be fun to make a doll out of all the pieces that didn't work for the intended project, a FRANKENPOPPET  Grin

I never seen any doll stands in shops around here & would love to find a tutorial on how to make them out of readily available items. I did make a rather bad one for my sisters Weeping Angel out of a wooden knitting needle,a scrap of wood and some craft wire but it meant wrapping the dolls torso with the wire and then wrapping the end around the knitting needle. It's hidden under her clothing but it bugs me because I know it's an ugly mess underneath.

I just stuff it and pin that piece of stuffing in place so it doesn't move as I stuff the rest of the head. On one of my early dolls I used a bead in the nose but it shifted and now she has a small lump on her cheek  Roll Eyes

I use premium fiber fill cause its fluffy but holds its shape well, i stuff the top of the head n work my way to the nose, then i take a chopstick and smush and twist it in there till the nose stays really firm n shapeable =D then i uberstuff the head so the stuffing in the nose cant shift on me =D
