I just came across the poppet tonight and am so in love!  I MUST make one for myself and my kiddos!!!

I think these poppet dolls are sooo cute and I would LOVE to make one, but...my sewing skills aren't so great-how difficult is it to make one? I would hate to bug you for a pattern and not be able to do it!

I found the poppet pattern to be very easy to work with and I consider myself to be on an intermediate sewing level.  And, the poppet was my first doll.  It took me about a week, but I only worked on it maybe 1-2 hours a night.  You will learn alot just by making this doll, so I say go for it!!

Stock up, because you won't see em till next fall.  Spring time dolly making always drives me crazy looking for fabric.

Visit http://ghilie.wordpress.com/ for the poppet pattern.

Oh Joy!
You should have seen my expression when I thought my poppet- making chances were gone. My boyfriend saw it and immediately declared I needed a hug.
You have no idea how unbelievably in I am.

I second... maybe third the queries of good fabrics to make pretty poppets out of. Grin

Thought I'd encourage enabling.  Smiley


The above is the weekly link to hobby lobby.  I plan on printing out a few of those coupons and going in and buying each item on the doll list at 40% off.  Smiley

Another source for alova suedecloth is Walmart - I bought my suedecloth there last year and the stuff holds up WELL!!  I used it as inners for my diapers for my kids, so you know it gets heavy usage and  it still looks brand new a year or so later!

I am especially glad I bought a 'tan' ish color (I bought several yards at the time) as that's what my baby boy poppets will be made out of.

The boys had a rough night last night so I didn't get any 'me' time.  Hoping sometime this weekend to get the pieces cut out!  Smiley

excited about little boy poppets!  Smiley

Oh I'm definitely joining this, since I'll be starting my second poppet pretty soon. I finally got the first one done for the Halloween craft-along. (It's on page 19 here: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=195129.180 )

I shall get working on my second poppet very soon! I have some really fantastic ideas!

I like owls. I am forgetful and clumsy. Zombies are cool. My life is filled with awesomeness and yours should be too. ^.^
