Dianna Effner’s Little Darlings dolls are precious, and I would LOVE to have a dozen of them, but since that’s never going to happen, I have decided that having a little wardrobe of wigs for them is the next best thing. I can have a brunette, a red head, a blonde, a pinkie, all with the switch of a wig. Oh, how fun. I’ve been collecting a nice little stash of Monique wigs over the last couple of years, but this weekend I decided to try my hand at wig making. I stumbled upon this amazing website loaded with lots of fun tutorials, and found a very simple pattern for making doll wigs. Check out Antique Lilac and see all the wonderful (and FREE!) information Martha Boers has generously made available to the world….
If you want to make these yourself using the pattern on the website, you’ll have to tweak the pattern just a little to make it the right size. As suggested, I made a sample out of felt first to get the right fit.
I still need to wet the wigs to bring back the springy curls and style them a bit, but for now I’m pretty happy with my first attempts. I can’t wait to make more! I like having the extra options with these new wigs. Do you think you’ll give this a try?
Thanks for reading!
