OK, be gentle, This is my first and second attempt at making anything other than rectangular bags.

These are my two girls, The purple haired one came first and the nakie one came second.

Not made with any doll joints because I can't find any and also no doll eyes, her eyes are black beads. She has permanent super glue marks on her cheeks. I sewed her head together the wrong way up and decided to try gluing on her eyes. Then i realised that she was on the wrong way round, removed the eyes and unpicked then put her back together.

Also no doll joints but I did find over and hour and a half's drive away some brown or orange eyes. She came out a lot fatter and I think it shows that my sewing skills have improved a little.
I made one major mistake and forgot to leave her neck hole open when I sewed her head. I unpicked where I thought it was supposed to go and ended up with a poppet that looks like miss piggy from the side.
I have thouroughly enjoyed making these and plan to make many many more.

Maybe one day I'll be consistant  Cheesy

They are gorgeous!  I love the dress you made for the 2nd poppet.

I finally have a wist!

They are sooooo cute!  Cheesy I love the fabrics you used to line their ears. The tilt in the little girl's head is just precious! Great job on your firsts... so glad you joined round 3 of the poppet swap!

Thanks- the good comments make me feel a bit more confident.  Smiley

I don't know what the yarn is to be honest, my mum works in a pound shop so she bought me some at 4 balls for 1.

She bought me 5 different colours when I started crocheting but it's impossible to crochet with for a beginner.
So now I have loads spare, at least I've found a reason to use it.

They look great! And on the consistency thing. No poppet I've made is ever the same. They all are slightly different. Even the pink twins I made at the same time are totally different. I do think it's true that you improve watch time you make one though.

Honestly I know the purple girl is your first but she's my favorite of the two. I really like her face and hair. They both are great and you did wonderful jobs on them!
