First Attempt At Doll Hair

Making doll hair has been on my todo for a while. This is the result of my first attempt.

Doll Hair Front

I used a piece of cardboard the width I wanted the hair length to be to wind the yarn around before cutting it in half. I placed the hair strands between freezer paper to stitch them together. Using a straight stitch I changed the length down to 1.5. After it was stitched I tore the paper away leaving the hair wig.

Doll Hair Stitching

I made 2 of the wigs then placed them on top of each other and hand stitched into place on the head. I cut 2 pieces of yarn then looped them over each side of the hair to form pigtails and tied them using a simple knot. I then hand stitched each pigtail into place.
