ASSIMILATE - ASSIMILATE. Why you ask, well that is quite simple, I have been assimilated like many others have been. Poppetering has now got a hold of me.
BUT !!! not in the same way as all the others, reason being, I can NOT sew. Sewing machines, pins, needles etc are all manipulated by poltergeist and out to get me, so I stay clear of them. Now you are probably wondering, how it is I can now be a Poppeteer.
Well for people who can not sew, I have created a Crocheted Version of the ever wonderful ghilie Poppet. Mine is not as beautiful as ghilies, but it was the only way I could make one and my heart and soul went into it. I have never created a pattern of any kind before and can barely follow basic patterns.
sewhappysue was kind enough to test her for me and point out places that needed twinking, which she gave me some modifications for her.
Now that the Birthday Girl {ClonedBravo} has received her I can post some pictures of her, comments and criticism are welcome.

The Pattern is free.

That is an excellent idea and I can really see alot of people using it. Marvellous, and the pattern looks excellent too

Look twice, buy once. Nooooo
Look twice, decide I can make one instead.

I had the pleasure of testing this lovely creation. Thank you nytefyre!! Very well written pattern, easy to follow. As far as my twinking, it was actually a matter of personal taste in what I like in the dolls I make. But I have never made a crochet doll that I havent changed to some degree. I will post pics of mine sometime soon. My camera was murdered late one night, many suspects, no hard evidence.....although I am leaning heavily toward the cat spaced out on 'nip'
