In case any one is interested in them, I will be adopting out both Crimson and Carl, I am running out of space to keep them and the boy says I have to get rid of some of my stuffs.  Cry Not sure anyone would want them but I thought Id give it a shot.
Is the boy getting rid of some of his stuffs too? Otherwise I'd be like No way! My hubby knows better than to ask me to get rid of something like that. I'd probably hurt him. lol.
HA! he doesn't have much! All my crap has taken over the house. seriously. Crimson has found a home and Im assuming I will be stuck with carl for life lol.

Mk, don't feel bad! My only poppeting since the challenge is keeping up with the thread. -_- I feel like a heel because your faun hasn't even gotten started yet! I go in and look for the furry stuff and it's either a mixed lot of color browns or one little square left! I'm not really sure who else in my area is looking for that fur but I'm going to have to hunt them down. *chuckles*

Then I have that lovely rust alova you sent me as well as some green thats been begging to become poppets.

Must get out of swap land!

WOW  Shocked A 499 page thread...and counting!

I was certainly not able to read all of the pages, but I still found so many great tips and ideas.

I can't believe the huge variety of poppets there are - all so lovely in each their own way!

I can't wait to make one - I hope she wont be all wonky.  I have been making a list of all the materials I will need - I have one walmart and one Fabricland here - I hope I can find everything!  It is the freezer paper I am most concerned about finding - I have not seen it in my grocery stores, and I am not likely going to be able to eBay it  Grin 

more searching to do!

I would love to start making outfits for my poppet even before she is "born", but I am afraid that nothing will fit when I am done!

I think people are stressing too much about the freezer paper. It should be with the wax paper and cling wrap. If there is a butcher in the store ask them if they have any or a deli. You probably only need about 6" of it but ask for a yard. It's very handy stuff. Ask them where you can buy a roll in your area. It really helps to finesse the curves and corners but I usually end up restitching those areas w/o bothering to remove any stitches. The Alova is so great! gilie knows her stuff. You will need more pins w/o the freezer paper so your fingers will thank you if you use it.

I have body parts all over my house. The body parts of the poppet I made with nuBuck is much smaller than the Alova which is smaller than the mini leopard print I got at malWart. so it is best to wait. The clothes are quicker and more fun. I think. My Alova rabbit poppet still needs eyelashes and some things which I don't have yet.

MK I wondered where you were! Glad for you tho.

I was wondering where you were, MK. I'm so glad you get to do that catching up! It's a great fix for everything that ails you!
Sometimes I think that I need to take a break from the poppeting, and then someone asks me to make them one, and I realize that I receive great gratification in the making of one.
I have the pattern for my Spiderwick Mermaid all drawn out, and haven't started her yet because I was originally going to make her a mini. Now I know I can't do all of that detail in the ultrasuede fabric I'd saved for it, and there isn't enough of it anyway. She'll have to be original scale, but I'm rethinking the fabrics.
I'm really impressed by the dragon I saw recently on the Toys thread.

Do you have a picture? Ellasmama made it from the pattern and it works fine. It could be your poppet is plus sized, or something else.

Yes, I told my eldest son I'd make her for him. He's reading the Spiderwick Chronicles and is fixated on everything having to do with the books. I posted a link to the picture a while back. It's burried in the thread. When I make her, I'll post the pic too, just like the strawberry fairy.
