Bad Hair Day!

Not me, the doll.

I am following instructions from this book I found at Knittn' Kitten.

I totally remember that kitchen witch! I think my mom made one.

It says to "take desired yarn and wrap around the head: stitch here and there to keep from slipping." I think I'm following the directions correctly.

"Cut yarn 12" long. Tack to the center top of head in bunches of 6."

Doing it this way doesn't cover up the hair I wrapped around her head, and I don't think I did that part well enough to have it show!

After a bit of searching, I have found this very visual tutorial. I'm going to start over and try some of these techniques.

The hair will have to wait though, because this weekend I'm starting on some bunnies for the kids for Easter and I'm heading over to the CRAFT magazine release party at Twisted.

That's so cool. Thanks for sharing the tutorial link. I've always wondered how to add yarn hair to the dolls I make. The technique is much better than gluing! :)

That looks pretty cool! Way better than I could ever do!
