1  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Puppy Poppet - pic obese on: September 26, 2008 05:34:35 PM
Poppet number two took a small detour from the original pattern, but I had a pretty clear idea of what I wanted going in, particularly because he was meant to be birthday present for my two-year-old.

"Hello!" he says. He likes meeting new people, not unlike a real puppy!

Because he's stuffed so stiffly, he's quite posable, which led to much enjoyment on my husband's end as he took pictures.

How did Little One respond?
There was a moment when he first saw the puppy when his face lit up. Priceless.

And then he moved on. Quickly. Broke Puppy's heart.

"Love Me!"

Aw, it's ok. Daddy loves you.

"See you later!"
2  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Bronwyn, my first poppet on: September 22, 2008 08:02:19 AM
I'm lagging way behind the fad, but that's fine with my Poppet. Meet Bronwyn!

I stuck to the original pattern as closely as possible -- minus girly sculpting -- and she turned out so very well. It's funny how she really does have a personality and everything. The Poppeteers Who Came Before weren't kidding. Bronwyn specifically is just zen, very cool. She doesn't care about pleasing the people or keeping up with trends or being cool, which is, of course, what makes her cool. We did have a tiny tiff to begin with as she told me her real name and immediately made me promise not to tell the world. Fairy superstition and everything. So we picked "Bronwyn" together, and I think we're both satisfied.

It took me a couple days to cobble together clothes and, wow, they're rough, but they cover her nekkidness, and introduced me to the crafting-drug that is/ will be doll clothes.

Halter top and "boxers" and headband (probably can't see it that well) made from a flannel sheet that says "Boys Are Smelly."

A pair of boy shorts made from an old Tshirt of my husband's. It's my favorite piece, and I can't wait to make more little teeny underpants!

Thanks to Ghilie for her generosity in sharing her pattern! And to the awesome Poppeteers in the Poppet Craft-a-long!


3  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / Yet another Totoro hat... for Baby! on: September 28, 2007 02:23:52 PM
A hearty thanks to tamagotchi for her non-knit tutorial here: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=72078.0

For whatever reason (there rarely is a logical reason) I felt that my September baby needed a fleecy Totoro hat for his birthday. It turned out really adorable!

I have measuring/ cutting issues, so despite following the directions for finding the dimensions for the hat, I still had to add the wide band along the bottom to make it fit correctly, and then I had to adjust the ear flaps because I'm a dunce, apparently. Instead of ties, I opted for a little chin strap to velcro on the opposite ear flap.

The hat itself is blue fleece. The eyes, pupils and nose are craft felt. The leaf is a printed cotton that I had horded away because I'm a fabric junkie, and the whiskers and mouth are fabric-painted on.

And because Daddy couldn't resist the allure of the Totoro hat...

Also, celebrate this momentous occasion with me: My first craft post! I love perusing and replying to others' posts, but am only just now getting around to posting mine!
