And its on to the next project........

Here I have placed the black knitted cap over a coffee can. This holds the 'wig' in place while I sew the dreadlocks on. Maybe you can see the silver yarn needle on top that I use to sew each dreadlock in place. I'm going to be covering most of the cap with dreadlocks, so I need them to be sewed to the cap, on the top and also the sides.
Stay tuned for further developments on the Pirate Headpiece. You can make one for a human the same way I'm doing this.
Why do I have so many pictures like this? Well, a relative bought them and has set them up in a restaurant. I get to take these pictures for him and sometimes I make them new clothes.
My goal is turn this guy into a pirate in time for Halloween. I'll be sharing my progress with you as I go along.

I like this little guy. I sewed him and then crocheted him a pair of overalls since he was so.....naked without them.
Just wanted to share the fun before I call it a night. Ya'll have a good one!
