I had a spare couple of hours today so decided to make up a second lambswool wig, this time for Brodie my Iplehouse BID. When I ordered her, my plan was for her to have curls but so far I've not seen a wig that I like enough to order. So I decided to make my own using my tutorial that I posted here .
The second piece of lambswool that I bought from FUNwithTROLLDOLLS
is dyed the same colour but the curls are slightly looser and are shorter too, at 3 inches in length. The skin also has a sewn seam in it, which isn't a problem when making a small wig, you just work around it or place your pattern so that it runs through where it won't cause a problem.
I had to make a pattern as I'd not made a wig for Brodie before, so I did that using exactly the same method as previously except that I was more careful not to flatten or damage her applied eyelashes (basically I just left the cling film a little loose across her face.
This time I also decided to cut the finished wig into a chin length bob as I didn't want her with long hair.
And here is the finished result. Brodie is enjoying playing with her new 'hand' puppets that I got for my dolly kids in IKEA. The size of these 'finger puppets' is just perfect for dolls to use as hand puppets!
And she can even fit her sailor hat over the top of her curls!! :)
I hope you've liked seeing Brodie's new hair 'do', I'm really pleased with her new look....I love her cute face and think the curls really suit her :)
Thanks for visiting, and enjoy what's left of the rest of the week!
