Hello,I love your knitted babes. The outfits are great and also the hair looks great. How did you attach your hair? I have a knitted babe almost done but I am afraid to try to attach the hair. I bet your nieces loved them. I guess I should try to finish mine.Sherrisherricz@hotmail.com
Hi sherri,I cut the lengths of hair and laid them over the dolls head then backstitched them to the head using a backstitch. Then I added more strands where needed, strand by strand like you would attach tassels. Thread a needle with your wool pass through one stitch on the dolls head and then back through, leaving a loop. Pass the ends of the wool through the loop and pull tight. repeat as needed. Hope you understand me!!
Just browsing through your babes again and they are positively lovely...such a great use of colour. Think I'll go knit another!
