Raggedy Ann or Rag Doll Needle Felted and Sewn Hair Tutorial

this a needle felted and hand sewn rag doll hair tutorial
~
by needle felting her head you are covering her scalp
so no material shows through her hair
and
by hand sewing instead of felting the strands are secure
and cannot be pulled out her head
~
I use 3 ply wool rug yarn from Halcyon Yarn
~
to start the needle felting I cut pieces of wool around 5" long
and separate the strands
~
 ~
using a felting needle I work first along her head seam
then her head back felting in a circle to fill in where her
hair will be sewn
~

 ~
now you are ready to sew on her hair
~
cut the wool to the desired length of hair you want
I cut 5" strands ~ then separate them and
spacing about 1/2 inch sew the three strands 
around Annie's head
~
 ~
continue to sew 3 strands at a time
filling in the back of her head 
~
 ~
finger comb her hair when finished and trim where needed
~
finished!
~
hope is helpful 
please email me if you have any questions
~
thanks for visiting
God bless
