OK, my people.  Here's a link for you
http://www.hancockfabrics.com/viewfdsearch.htm?profile=&query=butter+suede&numHits=24

Hancock's calls the alova suede "butter suede" but I'm pretty dang sure its the same thing.  You can order online, too, so you international people can order it.

I love the donkey, my niece would go crazy over the unicorn, and I love Gloria.  I have three poppets sitting on my desk in stages including a patchwork bunny one that needs to get to my sons school very soon for thier 4th grade auction, they earn chips all year and have an auction at the end of the year with them.  He told me I needed to make a bunny poppet for that since they ask parents for donations for this auction.  I also have one that just needs clothes for my niece, and one that's mine that still needs a head, and arms.

Thank you all for the advice for the eyes I ended up painting the whites then adding the eye and the putting long lid on the top

I also changed her hair...she didn't like the washed out colour.
Next I need to find a way to make her horn look less like 'boy parts' :p

To make the horn look less like boy parts may I suggest taking a peice of gold or silver thread and wrapping it around to make the horn look spiraled. I made a felt taxidermy of a purple unicorn and I used gold thread around the horn to make it look more "real". It turned out really nice.

Head on a stick (I hate making the bodies)





She's a bunneh with long, floppy ears.  I tried black hair on her, but Mr. Ghilie nixed that and approved this light blonde. 

It's been a long time since I made anything, and I realized as I was making this head I was really quite happy.  Not with the crafting - her nose fell out after I baked it and I put it back in wrong, but it's been adjusted now - but just creating something in general made me happy. 

I think I might participate in a swap.
