f/o, leave a long tail.

As you can see, we have a far bigger piece than the head will fit. That’s because in order to create his signature curly hair we’re going to fold the piece and sew it in shape.

Follow along with the pictures. First, attach row 1 to the right (doll’s) hairline. Sew 4 rows along the back side of the head. Fold the next 2 row, with the following row underneath the first. Sew the hump down flat. Continue around the back for the next 4 rows. Fold another 2 rows, with the following row underneath the first. Sew the hump down flat. Continue sewing down the hairline. Should have about 3-4 more rows to go. Don’t sew down the hair tip.

As you can see we now have a “flap” of hair sticking off of the head. Now with your tip tail, sew through the tip 6 rows down the middle. Pull through and slightly tighten to cause the tip to curl up. Fold up the next 2 rows. Sew to secure the fold in place. Sew flat the next 2 rows. Fold up the next 4 rows. Sew to secure the fold in place. Sew flat the rest of the hair to secure to head.

    Does this doll use the same basic sackboy pattern you have, that can be altered for different characters by changing colors for outfits and such, with add-on pattern content?
