  1. 1

    Decide on the color and length of yarn hair you want to have on your wig.

  2. 2

    Measure an area on your table or counter that is double the length of the hair you want on your wig. For example, if you want hair that is 12 inches long on each side from the center of your head, mark the area 24 or 25 inches long.

  3. 3

    Center a sheet of paper in the area you measured. You will sew the yarn while it is on the paper.

  4. 4

    Create a flat rectangle of yarn by beginning at the marked spot on one side of the paper. Lay the yarn on the table across the paper, going from one side to the other, repeating the process until it is wide enough to cover your head. Make sure to make the rectangle of yarn thick enough so you can't see any paper.

  5. 5

    Use your sewing machine to sew the yarn while it is still on the paper, making sure to sew straight down the center of the yarn and paper. Do this several times to create the part in your rag doll wig.

  6. 6

    Remove the paper from under the yarn.

  7. 7

    Leave the ends of the yarn hair strands looped or cut the loops if you prefer that look.
