CosStitch: Wig Tutorial: Wefts
Anyway, wig tutorial about wefts. Nicely, not likely a tutorial but just a very short, temporary methodology on creating wefts, just so that you guys can get a rough idea on how you can create wefts in the first place.
So what are wefts in the primary place, you may ask.
Well wefts are.
. mainly wig hair that you can add to navy black hair your wig for quantity, fashion, length and color/ highlights.
So wefts will be bought on-line however it’ll be tough to match the wefts to your wig color until you’re shopping for from retailers with fixed shades.
There’s a couple of strategies you need to use to create wefts, for example, chopping a wig and using whatever you reduce up to create wefts, gluing wig strands together to create wefts or slicing up the complete wig to get the wefts.
This is the sewing methodology that I exploit the most when creating wefts from wigs. Bear with me, images are from google images.
– A comparatively long, thick wig
– Sewing Machine
– Thread in the colour of the wig
– Netting fabric (get the ones with the smallest holes as potential)
Minimize the wig. Principally you cut your wig to the length you want however keep whatever you just reduce off. We’ll be using these for the wefts.
In case you just need just a little for sideburns or things like that, cut from the bottom few layers if you don’t wish to create a layered effect. Else, simply reduce from the top.
2) So now you’ve wig strands and that i guess they’re messy and annoying. Tie them up for now.
Grab your netting and reduce it up to about so long as you need (Observe: This is speaking concerning the size). Be sure that your width is at the least 3 inches vast.
3) This is able to get a bit messy. Get prepared your sewing machine and turn off all fans and steer clear of wind!
Grab your wig strands and unfold them out on the bottom half of the netting that you have reduce. Be certain that it is spread evenly and that the strands are roughly of equal length. To save lots of yourself a significant headache, additionally ensure that the wig strands should not tangled when you are doing this.
4) Fold the top a part of the netting over. Using the smallest/ closest stitching on your machine, sew two or three traces across the part you folded down.
Aaaaaaaaand you basically bought yourself a weft!
You can now use this weft so as to add into your wig and so on. Handsew the weft straight into your wig. This could be lined in another tutorial entirely.
