Last year, my sister grew her hair out so she could donate it to make a wig for a cancer patient. It was a long and frustrating wait, as she’s always had short hair. I get the feeling that the saying “you don’t know what you’ve got ’til it’s gone” applies here, however. In anticipation of the day of the big haircut, I designed….yarn wigs!
It started off as a goofy little project but turned out to be quite the artistic endeavour. It incorporated some crochet, some weaving and stitching, and some actual hair styling! I created a set of 4 wigs so that our family could do our annual photoshoot to include my bald-headed sister.
I don’t expect her to wear these out, but it was a fun little project that may come in handy for future photoshoots and parties. She has them around when she does photoshoots and people always have fun and a good laugh. It’s a smile-maker for sure!
On a more serious note, huge shoutout to my sister for doing this. Here are all her links!
