Meet Piper



She's my second poppet, and a dryad. She's made, very very carefully, from a woven upholstery suede. The yarn I used for her hair inspired her theme. It just screamed "TREES!" at me.

It probably helps that I've always really liked dryads...

I'm having too hard of a time deciding if I like her hair or dress more. She's a perfect little dryad!

Thanks guys! I can't decide between the hair or dress either! I actually made a copy of her outfit for a halloween costume- didn't look as good on me! Grin

Puamelia, I can't remember the yarn brand for the life of me- I bought it at a Big W in Sydney several years ago now. I can tell you that the ball band was brown paper and had a cartoon sheep on it!

My mum is mailing me all of my poppet making supplies soon, if a stray ball band is in there I'll be sure to tell you what it was!
