My granddaughter asked me to make her a fairy doll so I decided to try my hand at a poppet. I am amazed at some of the fantastic poppets I see on here. I had an awful time with it but hey, it's done and hopefully she will like it.

The outfit is darling & hair is very pretty, the petals around her eyes is a great idea!! Wonderful job! You will never forget your first one & it will be easier on the next one!!   Wink

aww she is soo cute!!!! i hope she doesn't become your last! i cant do poppits yet but hope to some day!

i know every time i try somethin, if i do it again i often get better.
