Peculiar Poppets Playing
They love to Giggle =)
Since I was little I loved my stuffed toys. I didn't have barbie dolls, just wasn't my thing, but give me a plushie and I can have a blast.
When I made clothing and costumes years ago I would make plush bunnies for gifts that were themed for the recipients. When I started getting away from costuming I started to explore making toys. I love to share smiles and laughter, I could not think of any better way to do that then though toys.
My latest creations have been the Peculiar Poppets. There is no pattern so each one is a one-of-a-kind toy, even if they have the same jumper on their shape, expressions and accessories are always different. If I use a found object or vintage item for the accessory it becomes even more unique. Once the toy is complete they get a few sentences to describe their personality. You can see Heinrick above, he like butterflies. He visits botanical gardens to enjoy the plants at look for butterflies.
