12  The "please dont hate me for taking so long" -THE TOVI CURLS -*TUTORIA*L post! in Bath and Beauty: Completed Projects by tovi on: November 17, 2005 06:04:32 AM
remember me? like a zilion years ago? from the humanges "show off your hair" post pg.100?
maybe this will remind you-

http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=30298.990
 
and now, very late...i keep my promiss-



ive got my B.A. in this subject... Wink so ill try to explain as many "non-wishfull-results" as i possably can!
i am trying to make a tutorial for DUMMIES, not that i am suggesting anyone here is a dommie!! but i do belive that every man and woman,regardless of their I.Q., have the right to own a good set of tovi curls!!!!!!! (please play your national antom in the backround!!)

ok
so here goes-
 
i start by washing my hair at night and putting after drying well and combing  a good amount of hair cream (itll soak in the hair and keep the curl together)-





than i devide my hair to 2 parts- one part each side...)
and than i devide each side to 4 (total 8 groups of hair)
i do that while curling
you can also use pins to hold them
it dosnt have to be even thogh its recomended for best clean and simetric look...
and now photo-


start twisting around figer in one direction


twist untill it tight and even throw the full length-


when you finish one, take the next part next to it and curl it in the oppozite diraction
while you do that- put the finnished one end between your lips to prevent twisting back-

after finishing 4 parts- wrap the and around with a band-


all staight-thats good-


curling around itself-thats bad!-
(it means all of tham are in the same diraction)


solution- pin it to you Pj's, and go to sleep like that!(its a punishment for not folowing instructions!)


the next morning AFTER FULLY DRY!-
take out the pins and bands, start seperating each long curl into 4 or 5 parts- TRY TO DO IT AS FAST AS YOU CAN THOGH GENTLY!
when you do it youll know why i said it...hi hi... Cheesy

thats it guys! now you have yourself a tovi curled head!


and this is another wey i like to wear it-
 (already been posted)

anything un-clear?
still got questions?
want to comment on my cool Pj's?
PLEASE DONT BE SHY!

oh and please please please if you do it- than post a photo itll make me smile for unlist a week each!
 here-see Grin, smiling is good for ya!

have a great weekend guys!

Cute!  I love the puffed sleeves.... I'm scared to sew anything with sleeves...
Cute!  I love the puffed sleeves.... I'm scared to sew anything with sleeves...

dont!
look
here is a pattern of a perfectly normal sleeve ive found on the net-


you have to give it a try
in order to make it puffy all you need is a litle folding
4 or 5 are enoghe fron the center, about 1cm pr fold
use pins to hold it
than sew over it before conecting it to the shirt/jacket
on the jacket up here i also folded the end of the sleeve to make it more puffed... Grin
if you want a picture tutorial- just say the word!

and there is a full tutorial on sleeves on vintagesweing.net
take that 30 minuts its worth it
http://vintagesewing.info/1940s/42-mpd/mpd-04.html

plus a pice on puffed sleeves from there-
