Reindeer Hair Do

Punky's reindeer do for her Christmas party!
I used my sock bun technique for the bun and followed this blog post for the reindeer. I had to put the eyes further back because I used the sock instead of the foam form. But I think it's still super cute! Punky couldn't wait to do this after I showed it to her a couple weeks ago! Also, the nose is a bit big, would have rather had a smaller puff ball, but we already had this one and I was not about to go out and buy a whole new bag of puff balls for this one project. She loves it just the same!

How To Make Plastic Headband Blanks For Dolls!

Wow, it's been a long time since I've logged in here. I miss it! So I thought I'd come back and tell you all about a newish tutorial. I say new-ish because I released it awhile back but have just added an update. This tutorial will show you how to create headband blanks that fit an 18 inch doll such as an American Girl Doll! The update I've added is instructions to make woven headbands. I show you each step of the way to weave ribbon onto a headband that you created using the tutorial. The same technique can also be used for regular girl sized headbands too! To learn more about it click here.
