Published on January 10, 2013 in Poppet, Sewing

I would like to introduce you to Sasha! She is an elf poppet doll made from my adaptation of ghilie’s “My Pretty Poppet” pattern, combined with craftewoman’s Elenore poppet pattern.

Although I haven’t posted about it in a while, I’m still working on the Mystery Poppet Project! You may remember the previous post, where I had all of the body parts ready to stuff and string? Well, I have her put together! She doesn’t have her eyelashes or wig yet. I usually put the eyelashes

Trick: Magnetic Attachements

I have something that I want to attach to the back of the poppet doll that I am making. I decided that using a magnet is a good way to make the object “stick”, yet make it easily removable. I have some small, super strong, neodymium magnets, and I decided to use one inside the

Tips: Hand Coloring Eyes

I am making progress on my doll! All of the first sewing is completed, and the parts are cut out. I will be working on it some more today. I like to use 15mm clear plastic “animal eyes” for these dolls. They are the kind with the plastic washer that pushes onto the post on

Trick: How to Turn a Tail

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. The main difference in this version is that the doll has a more mature, adult female body shape, including a bust. The shape makes drafting clothing patterns a little trickier, but

Poppet Doll: Ashely

This is Ashley, the first Poppet doll that I made. I was going to name her Mouzie. But when I got the legs put on and stood her up, she announced loud and clear, “My name is Ashley NOT Mouzie!” So now she’s Ashley! This style of Poppet doll was invented by ghille over at
