The poppet I just made for a swap has been received so I can finally blog her! Her name is Marisela, like I mentioned in an earlier teaser photo of her. The name means "star of the sea". Thanks Heidi! Her torso, arms, and head are the poppet pattern, the tail is a pattern made by me. I'm so pleased with how she came out! Her hair is 5 different yarns and she wears a crown of pearls. I custom painted her eyes to look fish like. She sits on the rock with aid of a small piece of velcro. Her friends are a clam and sea horse. My partner really wanted a poppet with pets! I'm so proud of her! The rock is also weighted with lentils to keep it heavy. I love weighting stuff with lentils. Way better than those plastic pellets. Anyway, my swap partner loved her and I do too! You can see more pics of her on my flickr account as always.
