well after viewing all of the lovely tutorials on how to make dread falls from using wool (eg: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=149453.0 )
i decided to try and make my own!
i couldnt find colinette point five in the craft stores around town, but i did manage to find something similar at spotlight called sorbet melange... or something.
any way onto the pics!

here they are out.  as you can see, i had to use a head band to tie them to instead of the clips suggested by rock _goddess because i could not find the clips needed.

and a myspace type side shot!(with flash so it hides my freckles  Grin)


anyway, comments and critique are always welcome, and any advice as to how to fill out the back a bit more would be good! Smiley

Love the green.  I really need to get off my butt and get some wool for mine before march gets here, since I need them by mid-april.

love it  Grin can i ask some questions though? cause i am trying to make some for myself . first of all do you remember how many  dreadlocks did you use and did you needle felted them or just wet felted ? it may  not be so good questions but i am trying to learn those now and i really could use some help . if you have in mind some sites i would really apreciate it
thanks and once more love it especially the colour you used

actually its pre made wool- as in you just buy it by the ball. and i bought 3 lots of 500 grams and had some left over. i cut each strand of wool to about 60cm or so and then just tied it onto the elastic.
i used a wool very similar to the Colinette point 5 (which if you just type into your browser will give you a range of stockists through out the world)

at the top of this topic i have included the tutorial i used to make them.
good luck on your own dreads! Smiley
