How to sew yarn hair on a doll

How do you make a yarn doll?

Take something larger, either a large piece of cardboard, a thin book, or a dvd case (like I’m using here) and loosely wrap more yarn around it to start forming a body for your doll . Make sure that the body is at least 3 times as long as the arms you’ve made. Wrap the yarn around this at least 20 to 30 times or more.

What can I use for doll hair?

For a wig, wool or acrylic, or a blend of both will work perfectly, while silky yarn will give you the best long flowing hair . Mohair is also very realistic in terms of texture and is a popular choice for doll hair since it is brushable. If you don’t know where to start, then don’t worry.
