Thanks Eliea and KimsCozyKitchen, that helps a lot. I think I'll try painter's tape next time.

for the hair this is what I do-I start off with the book method so my strands are even then (1) I lay the hair on a piece of freezer paper, shiny side up, make sure there are no bald spots, (2) then I put another piece of freezer paper on top and iron it on a low heat, (3)then sew it down the middle, (4) peal off ONE side of the paper, (5)fold it in half and sew it again. Then peal the rest off, I use the smallest stitch on my machine and it peals off pretty easy and works well for me.
hope this makes sense:

Awesome thanks for the tute!!! I did the other method with tape, since I don't have freezer paper.

I have the hair on, and am now planning out my outfit, as soon as I get the eyes she will be complete.

Oh I hope thr outfit works out ok.... I'm sure it will Smiley

SO tonight i created my first poppet please tell me what you think, i have worked really hard and i like her alot, but i have somehow lost my hot glue gun and had to crazy glue an eye on and then there was this incident and now my fingertips are covered in crazy glue...




the only thing i could find to stand her up against was the banana holder thing.. thats whats black in the pictures

NOW my son wanted me to make him one so we made a dinosaur... i couldnt for the life of me find my needle so we hot gllued the seams.. its for a boy, and he used the hot glue gun so it is OK for him he said.

here he is sitting down (his legs are that messed up he was sitting funny)


heres a rear shot


heres a full shot
