Yarn Doll Hair Tutorial

with 1 Comment

Yarn is a great medium for dolls.  It comes in a variety of colors, thickness, twists…whatever! If you want blue doll hair- then do it.  If you want super soft and fuzzy doll hair- then do it.  The possibilities are endless and really they can totally make -or break- the character of the doll.

This yarn doll hair tutorial is all about making straight hair.  It’s a simple, sweet tutorial that really is totally beginners instructions.  The finished hair though is wonderful.  Besides showing you the best way to start, measure, gather and cut,  you are also shown how to stitch the yarn hair to the doll’s head.  Similar to a wig, the yarn could even be replaced if needed because of all the love and squeezes they get.

Her style of sewing it onto tissue paper and then cutting to length is smart, and I am so glad she has shared her method.
