Belly Dancer Poppet..

So my partner received the poppet I made for her. Here she is.

Here's up close of the detail on her clothes.


This last picture, I wanted to show her undies. I made her pretty gold panties/thong! Since her skirt had a split clear up to her hip, she needed something to go under there so she wasn't showing her cha cha.

I worked really hard on her. I knew NOTHING about belly dancers or their clothing so I did some research. The clothes they wear a just beautiful, made to enhance the beauty and sensuality of the dance. Although, this poppet is far from sensual..LOL..I thought she was perrrty.
A couple things I tried that were new to me? This is the Eleanor poppet found on Craftster. She has boobies! I've tried sooo many times to make a poppet with boobies and I failed each and every time. With the advice from Puamelia on Craftster, this is the first one I was successful at. Also, I crocheted a cap of yarn to 'weft' the yarn into. I have very limited crochet experience. When I say limited I mean, I can make scarf. A wonky one, but understanding the directions. Nope. Puamelia sent me some awesome links on youtube to learn to crochet a cap. I did it, but don't look to close. ;0) This was a lot of fun! I think she turned out pretty nice,if I say so myself. ;0)
