My granddaughter asked me to make her a fairy doll so I decided to try my hand at a poppet. I am amazed at some of the fantastic poppets I see on here. I had an awful time with it but hey, it's done and hopefully she will like it.

Oh I love her & I'm sure your granddaughter will love her for sure!!  Cheesy I love the wings &  leaves all over her is very cool! The outfit is darling & hair is very pretty, the petals around her eyes is a great idea!! Wonderful job! You will never forget your first one & it will be easier on the next one!!   Wink
