Stella wig tutorial

Ok, so you have a gorgeous piece of Tibetan fur and the pattern for a Stella wig, now what?

The fur and pattern can be found here in my Etsy shop

For those of you that haven’t done a lot of sewing I thought it would be a great idea to post a short tutorial on how to go about making a wig for Stella.

This wig pattern is my own design and I kept it simple enough for anyone to sew. It can be done either on a machine or by hand.

If you are using a sewing machine I suggest either using a leather needle or a heavier regular needle like a #14 or 16. I forgot to change my lighter #11 out and it broke pretty quickly.

So here we go!

  1. Determine the direction of hair growth and lay your pattern with the arrow going the same direction as the hair. Trace around the pattern, flip the pattern over and trace it again for the second piece.
  2. Cut the pieces out using an Exacto knife. When you are cutting fur it’s important to try to cut just through the hide and not the fur on the other side. If you use scissors you may get some bare areas where you cut the fur away.
  3. With the right sides together sew the dart on both pieces. I use about a 1/4 inch seam allowance and then trim the finished seam to 1/8 inch to remove bulk.
  4. With the right sides together pin and sew around the top of the wig. Trim the seam to 1/8″
  5. Awesome job! Almost finished.
  6. Now we will turn the front of the wig under so the raw edge of the hide doesn’t show. Contact cement is really the best ting to use for this. Paint Contact Cement on the front edge about 1/2 inch wide. Wait for it to dry which is usually when the shine goes away then fold over and press the edge together. I like to use clips to hold it for about 15 minutes. As you can see you can use an array of different things to do the job.
  7. Time to cut and or style your wig…or you can just leave it as it is. Because this is natural fur you can use all the same styling products that you would on your own hair. I like to use a spray leave in conditioner, sometimes mousse and hairspray. I gave my wig some messy braids and cut some bangs/fringe.
  8. In a future tutorial we will look at making more complex wigs and adding extensions….happy wigging!

One of my collectors, did a wonderful job with her wig and and shares her success with us, thanks so much Lin!

New gorgeous Tibetan Lamb hair available


I’ve been super busy with dyeing, cutting and bagging new absolutely beautiful fur!


This batch is all naturals and I’m really happy with how they came out. The hides are nice and thin for those that make wigs left on the hide.

As always my furs have lots of life and movement. They have been washed and conditioned, dyed with professional quality dyes and set.

Also I have super deals on 5 oz scrap bags, great if you are cutting the hair from the hides for art dolls. This is enough fur for several 6-8 inch dolls.

New this time I am cutting 2×2 and 3.5×3.5 inch pieces for the troll crowd. Even trolls need a new hair do once in awhile!

The fur will be available in my Etsy shop

and on Amazon  starting Friday June 30th

I usually ship the same day as I receive your order. Please note that I am shipping Mexico post which takes about 3 weeks to arrive to you in the US, Canada and most other destinations.

You’ll want to have some on hand for those last minute projects, don’t get caught with no stock and having to wait 3 weeks.

Thanks so much for your continued support, you’re helping to “keep the dust flying” !
