HAIR

(Mint)
*Cut strands of Mint about twice the length of the doll
*Follow my often used hair tutorial to attach the strands on the hair cap
*Use the pet brush to untangle the yarn to make finer hair
*Cut the hair to any preferred style. I chose long hair with side bangs ^^
*The pet brush is optional... To be honest, it's a really tedious task that requires a lot of arm muscle and I meant a LOT. It will really take time before it gets that silky, fine texture. So you really have to be committed if you want to use the pet brush, otherwise the yarn hair look is never a bad option ^^

The cutie without the kitty beanie...
 And here she is being all kawaii with the beanie. ^^
Not bad for a sudden light bulb project, huh? ^^ To be honest, I have tons of amigurumis lined up and I set them all aside to make this cutie kitty. I guess I was that stressed out that I had to momentarily escape my already laid out plans for the whole month. Nothing to relieve stress than to be spontaneous and care-free, even for a little while. Sigh! Well, this definitely hit the spot. ^^
