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 back of the doll. So then, I had to come up with a way to attach it, so it stays in the proper location.
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 the center back of the eye to hold them in place. They are easy to insert, and hold up well.
I’m not really a morning person. I’m SO not a morning person, my kids will tell you that breakfast, when they were young, was a big challenge! I usually skipped it for myself, or ate something that wasn’t a good idea. We’ve all been there: Fly out of bed, get ready for work, send the kids off to school, fly out the door… maybe with a cup of coffee or soda in hand.
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 iron it on to stuff. If you saw yesterday’s post… Freezer paper is used to make the Poppet Dolls.
There are some cleaning jobs that are just nasty… such as cleaning that greasy broiler pan, the bottom of the oven after Thanksgiving dinner or the BBQ grill after a football party. The cleaners that are normally used aren’t healthy for us, either. However, there is an easy way to clean these up that doesn’t involve anything more than stuff you probably already have on hand: white vinegar and baking soda!
