Legs are hinge-jointed. Choose from 2 hair styles. Go long and loose, with ultra-easy, no-crochet construction. Instructions for a clever and low-cost adjustable hair loom are also included. For crochet fans, directions are given for a quick loop-stitched curly cap. FAST & EASY construction! You'll get lots of adorable fashion detail with amazingly quick and simple sewing. All patterns are easy to cut, easy to sew, with carefully streamlined construction. Each step of the process is described in detail and illustrated with big, clear color photos.
