Absolutely stunning. I am so jealous of your swap partner!

I should have made this for my sister when my nephew was born. It took him two years to get remotely cute. Nice job!

loos so much like his character. Did the hair seem to stay well? Becasue the reason I've been hesitant on needle felting is that the wool typically locks together but since poppet skin isn't wool I was afraid it would pull out to easily.
I'd love to know how you felt about it.

It stays pretty well, actually. I think it's felted more with the stuffing inside than with his skin, but if it's felted securely enough, it seems to work.

What I did was first felted an overall cap of wool, so it looked like a dred-buzzcut, lol. Then I took a wide, even patch of wool and felted it on in layers, working from the bottom to the top (and at the top of his head, from the front to the back), all ending up at the crown. I used scissors like any stylist would. You can see why I'm not a stylist. XD Longer hair could be done this way, I think, but I certainly wouldn't give it to a child.

I needlefelted his hair in layering rows. I'll do another poppet someday and make a tutorial, but probably not anytime soon (school, work, life, etc)

Badger is all done and ready to be shipped out in a box!

Here's his thread: Badger from Firefly/Serenity

I'm in a Firefly swap on another board, and my partner's favorite character is Badger!

So here he is!

One of my reference photos:

His hat has a papier-mach base. Everything else is hand-sewn. His jacket has a pocket for his handkerchief. I did actually fold back fabric for his lapels, but it doesn't show well in the photos above.

His hair is wool roving needle-felted into his scalp. It's better than a wig!

sans clothes...

Honest Abe! I love him. You did a great job! I have inspiration to finish my poppet's clothes now! ^_^

Thanks all for advice on swapping/not swapping out poppet heads -- but luckily I haven't done anything yet, because I decided to outright ask my partner who she would want, and she decided on Badger after all. Huzzah, I don't have to go to Joanns again XD

I have a pants pattern that I made that I would like to share. I don't have a scanner, though. Is there a way to make a pattern in the computer based on what's in in my hands?
