 Grin I received from my wonderful angel beth8144, and my package was AMAZING  Shocked

First thing i pulled out was some red heart worsted yarn. I have been wanting to get my hands on some of this for ages. We don't have worsted here in UK. We have our main use yarn Double knit which is slightly thinner, and aran which is the nearest in weight. I use alot of American patterns, so wanted to see exactly what thickness was used.
Next i saw the poppet hair,  was going to try to get everything else out first lol, but couldn't contain myself, I had my husband sat with me, and i said to him, "i have to free her now". As I pulled 'her' out i realised, this was no her at all... My husband and i practically squealed together (of course he squealed in a very manly deep way LMAO) as we saw who we had.


Isn't he amazing!!! For those that do not know 'Legend of the seeker' this is Darken Rahl

(can i say YUM!!!! *swoons* )

The detail on Darken Rahl is incredible

My 10 year old daughter couldn't be any more impressed, and has informed me i have to know make a Kahlan Poppet to go with him -

beth8144 has been so very very very generous. She also included some clear safety eyes, which are not very common here in uk. Lots and lots of alova swede to try. It seems slightly different to what i have here in uk, can't wait to give it a go. And another outfit for Lord Rahl.

Which i think makes him look like a Spanish lover lol  Cheesy

All my wonderfull goodies together. Thank you so so so much beth8144 you are a true angel  Kiss

Mummynat, I love your poppets, they are quite a family. Can't wait to see your new addition.

Lol, i love taking family photos before i send poppets to new owners. (the goth one in my last photo has gone now.)

I know this isn't the best photo (Taken with phone) But i though it showed well, the height and width difference you can gain by changing your grain/stretch of your fabric.

The red one is a plain poppet pattern with the stretch going width ways she is quite short and fat. Her face has the stretch going diagonal, it gives the jowls. She stands easy

She cream one with no toes is an elenor poppet, again with the stretch doing width ways, and the face diagonal. The elenor poppet comes up just slightly shorter for me. She stands quite easy, but has a very curved back with arms quite far back, so can sometimes need playing with.

The middle cream one is the elenor poppet with the stretch going length ways (except the arms, the fingers go completely wrong for me if i try to do the stretch length way, scary.) As you can see, taller, thinner and the face is thiner, longer and without jowls. Quite a bit harder to stand.

I have not yet done a face with the stretch completely width way, i like the diagonal, but will no doubt have to try it soon.

Hope this helps some peeps  Wink

I haven't heard from my partner to know if her package has been received, I hope she is okay  Huh

DizzerSpinninRound suggested i post a pic if i have one of what i sent.

I didn't take many pics of 'Gwen'. She should have arrived safely, and a I am sure when everything is good for ellemir we will find out.

They are both really cute!
But I really love the first's hair...
Great job (and they are totally worthy of posting)!
Thank you thank you x

I love the girl, her face is adorable! what material is she made out of? She is precious..
Thank you
She in made out of organic cotton knit. Her hair is double knit wool. She is ment to be stuffed with sheeps wool, but i am on a de stash, and trying not to buy more untill i have used up some supplies, so she is stuffed with normal toy stuffing as i have lots lol.

Agreed!  Definitely worth posting.

A question if I may?  This might seem like a novice inquiry, but how did you get the face fabric to curve the cheeks and pop out the button nose?

"This Rocks"
Thank you
You shape the face by first making an inner head which you sculpt. I always give the cheek shape, and sometimes shape for noses, eyes and mouths, depending what mood i am in Smiley Then you pull the 'skin' over it like a glove.

10  waldorf inspired dolls in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by mummynat on: February 28, 2010 11:46:11 AM
I never normally give posts to my crafts. *shrugs* i just never think them worthy of a whole post. But i am sat here winding down from my daughters 5th birthday, and thought i might as well show her doll off.
I will hopefully get some better pics soon, and likely add some of my other Waldorf inspired dolls to this post.

She has had a few names so far today including Ella, flower and heart. Leyonce is very creative and will likely come up with lots of names before she sticks with the perfect creation.
Including the mass of her hair, which is a crochet cap wig and styleable, she is about 20 inches tall.

This one is my sons doll that i made him for his 6th birthday last month, he is a couple of inches smaller, and his hair is great to play with Smiley

Hope you like Smiley
