Have you watched Tangled? Ok..what a silly question. It is eons ago but the movie always grows on me. The character, the song..it is so magical. I never get bored watching it, so Zahra. She loves this version of Repunzel so much and I always wanted to make Repunzel playdress for her but couldn't spare the time, until I read this tutorial from LiEr :- http://www.ikatbag.com/2013/04/wig.html
It looks easy and simple enough to do it in a short time so I decided to give it a go. I tried to find nude or yellowish fleece to make it as close as Repunzel's hair in the movie but couldn't find it..well, I found one at Kamdar but the quality is not that good, so I opt for this brownish color. It's fleece blanket from Tesco actually. Well, it's long and wide enough, so that will do.
|Cut about 6 strips|
|combine all. Fleece won't fray so you don't have to serge it.|
|Snip some bang|
|Tadaaaaaa!!! Well, it's a bit loose as the pattern is for older age.|
|And she's so happy with it. Keep on twirling with the 'long' hair.|
I altered it a little bit after that - just add a few cm of hem to make the cap tighter. Anyway, I made this in September 2013 and she still loving it til now. Am so so so happy I made this!

I think I should make costume dresses for her. I can always buy...but it's so exciting to make by myself. Somehow it makes me feel like a superwoman LOL. But I just couldn't fit the time, so I guess I am not a superwoman after all :-)
