I'm working on my dd's xmas gift - a sack doll (her first doll). I've tried forming the head now about 5 times and it's still too soft! Am I missing something? Any tips on how to get a really firm head? I've tried stuffing the tubing, I've tried prerolling a ball and forming the cross of wool over it - always too soft! Could it be my wool?
Thank you! I decided to go with my original head, though it's a bit soft. I've decided to update here in case anyone else has the same question - I did have the wrong wool - I was using roving and not batting. I think I could have acheived a much firmer head with batting. Ah well, next time!
