Sewn wig, hats, poncho and slippers?
Okay. So I tried my hand at sewing a wig cap using a tutorial provided by Antique Lilac (http://www.antiquelilac.com/tiny-mohair-wig-tutorial.html). The size was perfect, but I did cause a little bit of shrinkage when I sewed on the wefts. The key is NOT to PULL when backstitching. Here's the results. (Same wig, different head Chicline sculpts)
Well, I was so pleased with my crocheting skills that I pulled out my various patterns found online (many for American Girl doll or Barbie) and ended up with a couple of hats and scarves, a set of leggings, a poncho, and slippers! What a blast. Here are some pics of my February endeavors.
You can find the pattern for these darling little slip-ons here. Thanks Wovenflame! (http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/wovenflames-doll-slippers
What's next? Well, underwear of course! I've already made my first set.
