I made these two for Christmas presents for my youngest two girls.  I also made two "Build-a-Poppet" kits, with pre-sewn parts and a coupon good for help with the difficult bits.  I really like marabou for boy hair, and will probably use that again.  I made the boy out of a non-stretchy suede, and he was much easier to sew, stuff, etc.   I made the girl out of a stretchier microsuede, so she turned out much longer.  I liked the non-stretchy material and results much better.  These guys don't really have names yet.  Thanks ghilie for putting this doll-making within my "reach" -- I make lots of clothing for my dd, and even helped my girls make Waldorf dolls from kits, but I would never have imagined that I could do this.  All is now "demystified" and I feel like I could make many, alter the pattern, teach others, whatever! lol
