PoppetsByGili's Shop Announcement

From European folklore, poppets are said to bring good fortune, prosperity, and love.

Welcome, and thanks for visiting my shop! I encourage custom orders, so please feel free to contact me with any and all questions about items, additional colors & styles, etc. I love a challenge!

PBG history:
My designs were first developed as an historical interpretation for schoolchildren: a simple project to stimulate interest in needlework. Soon I found myself compulsively forming kitchen witches, princesses, and all manner of slightly creepy critters! Now my home is littered with tiny brooms, pitchforks, paper fans, muskets, yet still I look to create new poppets. The magic is real, for how they have cast their enchantments upon me!

Poppet Construction:
Poppet bodies and clothing are made from repurposed materials (most often from the rescued off-cuts of colonial costumes.) They come in many colors and styles. Each poppet is sewn with a thread loop for hanging, and a metal ornament hook may be attached at the buyer's request at no additional cost. In general, they are not intended as children’s toys, but I can modify any design to withstand gentle play.
