371  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Discussion and Questions / E-Z way to do hair? on: September 10, 2011 07:09:09 PM
Is there an easy way to make hair on a doll?  I have seen a tut by owlishly and it seems so complicated that my girly doll is still bald, I want some hair that is not going to take hours to put on and that will look super cute and stylish?  Do u have any tips?  How do you add hair to your ami girls?  Thx

I would make it in 3 pieces and then sc them together, but I can't figure out how to get the curves right in one single piece!  I bet it is going to look awesome though.  post a pic when you are done so we can all drool!

Sometimes when I am working on something larger,I will cheat a little and do an sc row and then a hdc or dc row the sc row again. As long as your stitches are fairly tight it turns out fine and if you do it continually in a pattern it wont look wonky, but doubling your thread esp. if it is a size smaller than worseted will make a big difference.. I cant wait to see it done.

When you start another round you should use a place marker, you can buy them or make pretty ones but a piece of yarn in a different color works too, make sure you are only putting one stitch in each stitch and if you have a pattern they usually tell you how many stitches you should have at the end of a row so make sure you have that many... my 2 cents

375  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Discussion and Questions / Carbon Tranfers on: September 10, 2011 06:41:26 PM
I have tried doing the carbon tranfers for patterns but they come out sooo light that I can harly see them.  Is there a trick to using them?  Or a brand that works well, where do you buy them?  The ones I have are kinda old they came in a box of crafty goodness I bought used but they were unopened so I think they are okay..... Any ideas?
