hair pins

I did order these Clover basting pins I mentioned and I love them! They’re perfect for setting this gal’s super long mohair hair into all sorts of hairstyles. They’re definitely impractical. They’d be great for holding a complicated hair-do into place so you could sew it down. I like them just for playing though. Maybe for a doll for older kids or an art doll, definitely one that wouldn’t see any play because the pins would come loose. Not sure if I’m going to put these dolls up in the shop or what I’m doing. I just feel compelled to make, and play, with them.

    I love the hair! I was considering giving away some mohair yarn that I’ve held onto for way too long, but I hadn’t thought of making doll hair with it. So great! The hoarding will continue.
