Poppet Doll: Zelda

Please meet Zelda, my second Poppet Doll! This time, I decided to use the Elenore pattern created by craftewoman, a regular contributor on craftster.org.

Cool Tool: Freezer Paper

I think freezer paper is one of my all-time favorite crafting tools! I buy it in the largest rolls I can find and I use it for all sorts of things. It is a reasonably heavy white paper that has a plastic coating on one side. What makes it so cool is that you can
