I'm sure everyone is sick of poppets, but here is another one anyway!  I finally got around to finish poppet #3.  I intended to finish by xmas, but Leap day is close enough right?   Wink  She is for my 2.5 y.o. daughter who loves Diego and baby jaguar.  So I made her a mamma jaguar.  She picked out the yarn for the hair.  Please excuse her nekkid-ity.

Here is the back view.  You can't tell but she really has junk in her trunk.  The 2 fabrics i used had different degrees of strechiness.  When I stuffed her, Mrs. Jaguar's bum kept growing and growing.  I don't recommend using 2 different strechy fabrics.  It was not a happy fun time.  Neither was the spotted fabric.  I made the mistake of getting the evil unraveling kind. 

I'm still debating if i should do eyelids.  Mine always end up looking so wonky.  I don't know if i should just leave well enough alone.

Cute!  I really like the way you used the two fabrics, and her paws are adorable.  ^_^  Did you paint the spots on her face?

She's adorable.  I love the "junk in her trunk".  I think all mommy jaguars carry a little extra junk, don't you?

Those paws are adorable. Normally the Poppets made from print fabric freak me out a bit (yeah, it's weird Roll Eyes lol), but I like this one- she's a cutie.

I love her!

I think you should do no eyelids...but do you have a pic of them temporarily put on for comparison?
