I've done both ways. The method where you sew on little bunches, sheds. Little fingers love to pull out all the yarn strands. You'll find them everywhere. Very frustrating after hand sewing in all that yarn. The wefting is faster and more permanent.

well it's just for me.  I don't have and don't plan to have children.

Is there a better method of making wefts than that tape thing.  That is horrible.

Sure! Use the freezer paper. It tears away easily. You don't even have to iron it to the yarn. Just sandwich the yarn between two pieces. There's a great link for a tutorial on the first page. It uses tissue paper.

There's lots of hair ideas a few pages back - maybe search for wefts.

Thanks craftewoman Embarrassed  I'm just gonna return that yarn.  I'm not feeling it.  I'll have a look through my collection when I go home for spring break.

actually. i had this plan to do the hair from a piece of that furry fabric that they usually keep next to the fleece.  I think it would work but I'll have to test it to be sure.

Sometimes if you separate the strands, it looks cooler. Look at the strawberry fairy I did. The yarn had some really cool gradations of browns through it, and looks so much more like hair when it wasn't 4 ply. Sometimes it helps to look at things another way.

I just sewed each strand (folded in half) to the head, it seemed to work, and only took an hour or 2.

I've done that too. I like the weft method better. It's faster, and it gives the hair a fuller appearence, with less bald spots!
really, any excuse to use the sewing machine. My lil one isn't allowed up there!lol
