Making Doll Wigs…

WIP — Wigs in Process. These are Tibetan lamb wigs and you can see the fleece for the braids on the left. It hasn’t been combed yet. Combing fleece… That’s a chore!

I’ll be giving a short presentation on making doll wigs this weekend. To get inspired, I’ve been making wigs for a few weeks. I just got them photographed and thought that some before and after shots would be fun.

My messy worktable covered with fleece and stuff… When this table got too full, I moved to another table and completely cluttered it too.

You can see more of the new wigs on my “Wigs” page. I’ll have a few for sale on Etsy or eBay as soon as I can get them written up.

    I just discovered your blog today. I love your wigs, and would love to purchase one with braids. What is your name on etsy? Thank you! Cindy

    • Hi Cindy! Thank you so much for checking out my wigs. I just listed 3 on eBay and I’ll be putting another one on eBay later and one on Etsy. If you go to my “Sales” page, you’ll see links to my Etsy shop and eBay auctions. The blonde wigs with braids don’t have any stretch so you would need one with a measurement really close to the size of your doll’s head. If none of mine are the right size, I might be able to make one for you that is the correct size. Thanks!! Robbin

    Hi there.
    You do beautiful work.
    I’m a santa maker and would love to try this tibetan fleece. I can’t find it anywhere. Do you mind giving a hint as to where I might find raw fleece?

    • I’ve found it at shows and I’ve bought surplus from other crafters… I’d love to find some additional reliable retailers. My most recent lamb purchases were from Joggles.com. The quality was very nice. Their color selection is limited but the white can be dyed. White is probably just what you need for Santas and the white I got from Joggles was lovely.
      Can we see your Santas on-line anywhere?
