Something every crafter should try is making a doll's hair with yarn. It was probably the step of our rag doll adventure that was most daunting to me, but it turned out to be the easiest, and definitely the most fun.
All you do is create a yarn wig of your preferred color, machine-sewed at the part, and then stitch it onto the doll (we followed this very simple method). It's as easy as it sounds, and although we discussed many different hair styles, Rebecca decided to leave it plain, and only allowed me to trim it just slightly to adjust the length. Pity, as I was set on a pair of yarn braids tied with pretty ribbons! Still, I had quite a bit of fun as a yarn-hairdresser. But Rebecca has the most fun of all.
She got to be the mommy of the newborn rag doll, and she lovingly fed her a bottle (which was a bobbin of white thread!).
