Thank you nezbuttSmiley
Her hair is made with thin crochet cord, I forget what it's actually called....the brand is Aunt Lydia's. ^^
Oh crochet thread? What a clever idea. How did it work on the wefting part?
I love her ears they are great! and her face is so sweet and pretty! Great job!

nezbutt, no problem!
If you make a poppet with "Aunt Lydia's" hair I'd love to see it.  Grin
It makes great hair IMHO, because you can even brush it with a large tooth comb and it doesn't split or tangle like the embroidery floss can.  It's also very cost effective...I didn't even need the entire spool to make Nirmala's hair.

Eliea:  Well, I'm not sure, because I don't do my hair with a weft.  I was totally going to with my first poppet, but I was in a hurry to give it to my daughter.  So I did the two bundles of hair method, and then I hand tacked a thin layer to the scalp so there aren't any bald spots or anything.  That is how Nirmala and Julie's hair were done, but Aka-san the Oni's hair was applied strand by strand with a needle and hand-tied in place (so I could get the classic "samurai" hairline).  I think that method would work well with the crochet cord, too.  It would just take a lot longer to get the same coverage as with the yarn. ^^;

Wow! that's impressive and quite time consuming. I've been considering trying to make poppet hair from embriodery thread and crochet thread but perhaps I'll just have to try it at some point and see. Smiley

Eliea: you should try it!  If you don't like it, you can always go back to your original methods. ^_~
