11  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Discussion and Questions / Re: How do you do amigurumi hair? on: July 26, 2012 08:27:52 PM
You can also lay out a bunch of strands of hair, cut to the length you want, on top of the head and stitch them down.  This can give you a great, parted hair look.  But it can tend to pull out.  Or, for really short hair, you could use fun fur yarn and crochet them a little cap.  For a similar look, you can take a really long strand of yarn and stitch through the crocheted head, leaving a long loop sticking up.  After you have done that enough times to conceal the scalp, you have lovely short, curly hair.

Just some ideas.  Hope they help!

Thanks so much!  It can be hard for me to stop lurking and engage.  I do it in meatspace too.  Thanks for taking the time to comment!  I hope we can both be more active in things.

That is really cool!  I always thought crochet might be good for baskets.  That's another thing on my list of stuff to make.

He looks perfect!  You did a great job.

Does this make you a yarnbender?

Thank you all for your kind words about her.  I do have more dolls like her that I'd like to post in the future.  I'm really glad that people like my work!

Love her face!  I also like bjd, but I haven't had time to mess with mine for over a year.  Are you on Den of Angels?

I am!  I'm Cayora on there as well.  I haven't been playing with my BJDs as much since I feel like I've gotten good at these dolls.  I really love not having to worry about scratching faceups or breaking off fingers.

Hello!  I've had a membership here for ages, but I am attempting to be more social.  So I thought I'd post some pictures of some of the dolls I've made.  Forums count as social, right?

This is Mercy.  She is actually the first of her kind, one of my Gossamer Girl dolls.  I wanted to design some handmade dolls that could wear American Girl doll clothing, but with my particular aesthetic. I am also into ball jointed dolls, and these have a similar perspective.  But with yarn.  And much cheaper clothing available.

I'm not sure if she really belongs here.  She is crocheted, but she doesn't have the same look as most amigurumis.  I started with more classic looking creatures, but these days I'm just a dollmaker who happens to use crochet.  I love how I can get detail in the shaping with it.

Mercy was the first doll I was really pleased with.  I made her clothing too, except for her shoes.  I feel like she is something to be proud of, but I would really like to hear if other people like her as well.

You could make a wooden sword out of some sticks, a good sharp knife, some twine, glue and a fabric handle pretty easily.  I would have loved that as a kid.

How pretty!  That makes me want to dig my American Girl doll out of the closet.  Or maybe get some more.  That size is really great to make clothes for.
