1  Re: The Ongoing Poppet and Punkin-Along in Craftalongs by Spoox on: June 06, 2013 07:41:27 PM
Hi folks!

I finally posted up my three poppets (about time!)

Meet Aurora, Piper and Roquel-

and her own thread- https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=424370.0#axzz2VTojOWUF

Feels good to finally post them after Ghillie and Craftewoman were so patient with me and my pattern requests and re-requests Smiley

2  Roquel, the dominatrix-ish poppet. in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by Spoox on: June 06, 2013 07:32:36 PM
So a friend of mine had a small tube of rubber- probably a shoelace or something- that was black and flocked. While fiddling around aimlessly he threaded it onto a piece of wire, and inadvertently created a Poppet- sized whip. He instantly asked me for a Poppet to use it. Thus Roquel was born. She is made with the Elenore bodice with Poppet everything else.

I discovered that a pair of pants my grandmother never sewed together were cut from a skin tone knit with a tiny bit of stretch- perfect!- and with these optimal needle-sculpting conditions tried out for a collarbone and shoulder blades. I'm quite happy with them.

I could have sworn I had a pic of her with the whip, but I'm not finding it, so here's the obligatory naked pic- her hair is braided because she went through a brief middling phase of maybe being a Celt.

3  Piper, the dryad poppet in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by Spoox on: June 06, 2013 06:16:43 PM
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...

4  Aurora, My first poppet! in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by Spoox on: June 06, 2013 03:59:17 PM
Hello all!

Aurora was born far too long ago. I am terrible at posting things :/

Here she is before clothing and a proper hairstyle:

I made her from some black microsuede that had absolutely ZERO stretch, so needlesculpting her was quite a task. She has some strange creases as a result. I didn't have the jointing locations down at all, so she's a bit wide- legged, but she still stands!

I hand painted her eyes with student's acrylics, but opted not to put lashes on her, given they would have been invisible on her skin anyway! She's wearing a sock- sweater I made using this tute- https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=216844.msg2333354#msg2333354, and a super mini circle skirt.

Turns out the yarn I used for her hair (moonshine or something similar, long out of make I believe) will just tear apart at the slightest tug, so her buns and braids are permanent now. I made her little mini scrunchies!

5  Long Legged Sock Monkeys! (pic Chubby) in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by Spoox on: June 04, 2013 07:49:14 PM
I've been away from Craftster for a while, but I'm back with pics of some of the monkeys I've made in the interim!

The first monkey I made for my boyfriend at the time, a sort of in-costume-portrait of him in sock monkey form. The man in question being on the slender, tall side, I opted to make the monkey from a knee high sock, and the results were surprisingly cool. So, here is Lanky the pirate sock monkey!

Here he is with the man in question.

They get along swimmingly!

My lanky monkeys were quite popular- here is another one I made who's original sock ear went missing and needed replacing. His name is wonky, and he has socks and gloves.

Some normally sized monkeys- the wench was for the sister of Lanky's owner.

And finally the mini monkey- made with a child's sock. I got a bit obsessed with figuring out the results for different sized socks. Actually made one tiny tiny monkey from an infant sock- size one for whatever that means- which was adorable, but sadly I didn't get a photo before he was snatched up by a friend. He is sitting next to a recipe card for reference, so Aussie commercial supermarket shoppers will know how big he is  Smiley

Alright, sorry for overloading you with monkey pics!
