I am lost in admiration for wigmakers; all those hours of threading and weaving. A large ball of fluffy black yarn sewed to Susie's head has completed her look - not entirely to my satisfaction it has to be said, but we're on the way. Looping the yarn in hanks and tacking it in place first with polyester thread, anchored it where I wanted it until I could shape it into the style I felt she deserved. A little teasing and gentle brushing, and at last Susie can hold her head up in polite society.
The only garment I have so far is a 'newborn' Mothercare sunhat picked up for 75 cents in our local English store which sells all kinds of branded seconds which you never knew you wanted until you stepped inside.. As I speak am looking at the hat and thinking, "Should I buy a few more? There must be something I could do with them." Worth it for the floral embellishment and the button alone I should think.
