Christina mentioned a little while ago that one really should train one’s husband to make doll’s heads. Ah, if only he would, Christina. Don’t think I haven’t tried! But whenever I ask him to press down his finger on a piece of thread, so I can make a tight knot, he does this deep, deep sigh. No wait, I think it starts earlier, when I pull out my bag of sheep’s wool and doll fabric. Or just wave any random piece of string that could just possibly be used for tying heads. So yes, that still needs work.
Anyway. Not only did Christina dutifully train her husband (what am I doing wrong?), she also posted an extremely nice tutorial on how to avoid the (*gasp*) dreaded ghost neck. You can find it here: tutorial.
Now excuse me while I go think of new ways to hypnotize my husband into tying very tight strings.
