Isabella gets some hair

No one can deny the charm of the tousled brushed mohair wig. It's my very favourite doll hair. It gives such a innocence and playfulness to each little cloth person I've created it for. But those sweet little wigs take an eternity to make and they can't be hurried, there are no shortcuts, not that I have found anyway. Six to eight hours, that's a huge investment of my time. Then, once the crochet is finished the wig has to be brushed out and dampened with a spritz  of vinegar and water, dried and then stitched in place.

But the result...

so worth the effort every time. 

Isabella is very pleased with her messy, curly locks.
