i think ghilie said she uses tissue paper for the wefts. no need for the sticky really. ironing it with freezer paper will melt certain yarns, test first!

Actually, I don't use anything.  I just shove it under the foot!  The weft is really thick when it comes off the machine, so I pull it gently and it lengthens and thins... I don't know if I told you this, but I am pretty lazy!

i'm working on a new poppet, and this is how I did my hair.  It takes a while, but I like it because it doesn't leave any major bald spots - so you can do pigtails, ponytails, whatever.  I used Bernat Cool Crochet in chocolate... I've done this with worsted weight yarn, but you have to space out your hairs more, or you will end up with one thick wig.
Here are the steps:

Start with a netted bag - like this one...


Cut the bag such that you can make a little cap for your poppet head (Note that this poppet head was later destroyed by my 5 month old Shiba Inu puppy and I had to make another this afternoon).


Use a crochet hook to loop your lengths of yarn into the strands of the netting like this:



Continue on and on until you get a poppet wig that looks like this:


Then stitch that wig to your poppet's head.  I used the same cotton as I used for the hair to stitch on the wig so that I could hide the white netting with my stitches.  Final wig-on-head picture is top secret until she's done!

Oh I was just thinking what about that water soluble stabilizer? Like they used in this project:
http://www.diynetwork.com/diy/cr_clothing/article/0,2025,DIY_13751_5468642,00.html
It dissolves as soon as it's damp and even on natural fibers so long as it's not agitated and super hot that should be fine. I'll have to see if I can find some at some point to try.

Oh and I"m sorry I quoted the image earlier. I seem to be doing that a lot lately and I promise I"m not doing it intentionally. I didn't even remember quoting!I promise to try to pay better attention.
