Playing in Puddles: A Poppet Paper Doll Dress-Up Set

puddles-logoEmbarrassing confessions of a paper doll blog owner: I drew this set of clothes over a year ago. Over a year!

And I am just now posting them.

There is no good reason for this, except I sorta got wrapped up in other things. Never the less, here they are, just in time for snow rather than rain. Originally, I had planned on calling this set, “April Showers”. It is not april. April is a LONG way off.

In the meantime, I am calling it “Playing in Puddles” and I am very pleased with how these printable paper doll clothes turned out.

Petal is modeling this set. She’s my latest Poppet paper doll and you can print her here, if you haven’t already. Of course, you can print all the Poppets and their clothes. I’m rather pleased to say that there are now 5 different Poppet dolls and six pages of Poppet clothing, not including the outfit that comes with each doll.

I hope everyone is having a lovely holiday time with family and friends.


  1. Having a problem with the download for the black & white coloring page for Playing in Puddles for the latest Poppit. It keep s bringing up the black & white for Petal.

  2. I have been trying to print new dolls to color for several months, but they no longer print the same size as they used to. The border around the picture is now smaller making the dolls bigger! They are no longer compatible with the older poppets! I have no idea how to fix this, I have tried all the settings on my print view! I send these dolls to a little girl I sponsor in Haiti and I really don’t want to have to start over with a new set!

    1. I double checked to make sure I hadn’t messed something up, but the Poppets are the same size they were from the beginning. I’m not sure what you mean by border. The black border around the image is 10 pixels wide. The borders around the individual pieces have always fluctuated among the sets. Each Poppet paper doll page is measured at 5 inches by 8 inches, designed to be printed at that size.

      I have printing instructions here:

      I also recommend always printing from adobe reader, always printing from the PDF and always selecting the “print actual size”. Let me know if there is anything else I can do to help.

  3. Your comment about the size of the poppet page gave me an idea. I switched to a new computer to print and problem solved! I have always printed the dolls as 8.5 by 13 and I think the computer I was using just has slightly different print settings. Thanks for your help!
