I've heard that putting the faux fur in the freezer before cutting helps withthe shedding. I plan to try this when I do my brothers Clone trooper's hair.  Wal*mart finally had the right color fur for it so I get to save my eyelash yarn! lol I hoard my yarn so bad....

I've heard that too! When you try it you tell us how it worked. I have some ziploc bags that I could shove them in. It'd be worth it, it looks like I killed some poor woodland creature in my room right now.

For fun furr-

I hear it also helps if you can make a mock-pattern for the headpeice, do the freezy thing, then turn it over so you can see the underside (without the fur) and use a straight razor or a box razor to cut it.

You get a lot less fur shedding all over if you don't use scissors.
Or at least that's what I hear Cheesy

In the freezer? Really? Man I have been doing it wrong for ages then... Whenever I make my monster purses I just lay out the gigantic piece of fun fur, cut with scissors (with the fur side up), and then pull at the edges to get all of the loose stuff off and then have to vacuum up the entire floor area used due to the mass amount of fur accumulated. Then again, when I do cut fun fur, I do cut like 2 meter by 3 meter pieces, so I can't really fit that in the freezer Wink

But Seraphina_de_Sangre, it is true, he is great!

I'm making an angel poppet.  I was at Hobby Lobby getting some eyes and I spotted some angel wings and thought, "Why hasn't this idea occurred to me yet?"  I also found some beautiful pink eyelash yarn with metallic gold accents for her hair- on clearance for $1.99!  She's all assembled- just needs hair, clothes, and wings.  I can't wait to see how she turns out!

amigurl55, I also bought some wings too, though fairy wings. I just can't figure out how to attach them though (Silverwing made me a fairy poppet and sewed them on, but I think that I would want mine to be able to be removable). I made a little backpack and hot glued it to the wings and the backpack has straps that are amde of elastic to fit over her hands, but whenever I put the wings on, I have to bend her arms at horrible angles and then I feel bad, and the elastic gets stuck between her arm and body joint and then I get afraid that it will loosen her jointing, so now I am too scared to put them on her. I would love to see how you attach them and just to see your poppet in general Smiley

Anways, made another fairy poppet, you can find her here: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=303235.0
