Ive had so much fun looking at all the poppet swaps on here, I wanted to have a go. But in true "PESTY" style, I wanted to make sure I pulled in some up-cycling.
Belinda is made from a pair of womens trousers (They were truly vile to be fair), her dress is made from an old napkin which I dyed - and her hair was a very bright jumper with a few additions from my own collection of yarn.
her wings are wet felted, then the felt soaked in a PVA/Water blend then dried in the oven.
I love her to pieces, however second time round Im going to do the feet a little differently.

There was a woman who felted
And felted all day long

So the hair is a jumper that you unraveled?  And that's what gives it the curly texture?  That's brilliant!

I have boxes of vintage piano music.  Some as old as 1890's!  PM me if you'd like some!

I love her! Her hair is just perfect, and I love how you did her face and wings.
