Ambo, there are a lot of things that can be fixed with proper stuffing. really, you could sew perfectly, and if you understuff or stuff lopsidedly your doll will look funny. Use a screwdriver and stuff until you just can't push anymore in. Use the screwdriver to move the stuffing around, and PUSH!

Flowerwitch, congrats on your new poppety friend. That outfit that Clonedbravo made is excellent! I love it. You know she's a doll making machine! I swear she makes at least two a week!  That's compared to my approx 1 a week. LOL!

Since there are so many of you poppeteers out there who've requested the Elenore pattern, but are having difficulty with the front 3 pieces, I've made markings on them to help you out. I'll post the pics here, and if you need a new copy of the pattern, feel free to pm me. I don't mind.




When sewing the head, arms, legs, and back of the body, use the freezer paper method outlined in the poppet pattern.

Sorry, Ghilie, I'm not trying to hijack this thread. It's just that Elenore became known as the poppet with boobs.

Excellent, Craftewoman, thank you!  I am excited to try it again, so my next planned poppet may have to wait!

I can't wait to see all of the new well endowed poppets.
I was looking at my supplies/tools today and noticing that my doll making needles are all bent! This is quite an athletic project!
ACK! I just burnt my muffins! All because I was too engrossed in Craftster!  Cheesy

I have a new poppet I will be showing today. She's naked now, but by the end of the day will have a new wardrobe.

ETA* Picture

I was worried about painting a mouth on her, because she just looked so perfect before it, but Now that its' done I'm glad I took the risk. The little girl she's going to never stops talking! I can't give her a doll without a mouth!

for those of you who have poppet feet dissappearing into your machine, I start at the middle of the foot, on the centre seam, and sew outwards one way, creating one and a half toes, and then clip the threads and start again from the centre seam, going the other way, to make the other one and a half toes. a little time comsuming, but it stops many of my stupid mistakes  Grin even if it's unpractical!

lordy, craftewoman, how fast can you go?! you only just posted your last poppet!
