    Step 6

    Embroider Hair
    Slip hat on the head and mark the area falling outside the hat with pearl headed pins (Pic 6). The area falling outside this ‘line’ (towards the face and not the scalp area) is where you will be embroidering hair (Pic 7). Since the hat will be covering most of the head, you don’t need to embroider hair inside of this line.

Insert needle from the neck opening (leaving a small length of tail behind) and bring it out a little above the pin on the right side of the face. From here on, make slanting lines of varying lengths until you cover the left side of the head (Pic 8-14).
