Hair

Yellow yarn

HEAD HAIR:

  1. Using a light yellow washable marker, mark the hair line around the head so you know where to sew. Also mark down the center of the head from the start of the hairline in the front to the end of the hair line in the back to mark the center part.
  2. Thread your tapestry needle with a long double strand of yellow yarn. Weave the yarn into the body to secure it, then use a long whip stitch between the center part line and the buns, or the outer hair line and the buns. Your goal is the give the appearance of hair that is tied into buns. (M)

FRINGE:

  1. Cute several pieces of yellow yarn about 10 cm long.
  2. Using a latching technique, latch the yarn pieces along the front hair line. Latch several rows. (N)
  3. Brush out the yarn using a pet brush, or other wire bristle brush, then iron out the hair using a curling iron, or flat iron, on low heat. (N

PIGTAILS:

  1. Thread your tapestry needle with yellow yarn,
  2. Weave the needle into the base of the buns on the
    outer side where the pigtail will come out.
  3. Bring the yarn down to the bottom of the body. Hold
    the yarn to the bottom of the body while you bring the needle back up to the bun to create a loop as long as the body. (O)
  4. Weave the needle back into the bun and back down to the bottom of the body to create another loop. Create about 5-10 loops depending on how thick you want the pigtails.
  5. Cut the ends of the loops to create long strands, then brush out the yarn using a pet brush, or other wire bristle brush.
  6. Iron out the hair using a curling iron, or flat iron on low heat. (P)
