Inspired by carrieme's Daisy the Dollar Store Dollyhttp://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=237733.msg2609220;topicseen#msg2609220, I have just finished embroidering a face onto a similar Waldorf-style doll head made from socks (which looked a bit cuter before I tried embroidering the face Tongue). I am hoping that hair will make her a lot cuter - how do I take yarn and make her hair? Huh Are there any instructions for how to cut the yarn and attach it in some cute way - it doesn't need to be restyle-able (she is my first doll of this type, after all) that are online?

Any links and/or advice would be awesome and appreciated. Cheesy Thank you!

you might look at how they do the hair on the poppets.  it's probably the same technique(s)...

creative criticism always appreciated!
