Tutorial: Rooting hair in needle felted figures by SnowFox102 Tutorial: Rooting hair in needle felted figures by SnowFox102
Here's how I root hair on my ponies and other needle felted dolls. :) I use a sewing needle I cut as a rooting tool, and it's not really necessary, but if you want to make one here's basically what it ends up being: [link] This is my method for all hair rooting, but NOT fur.

This is Arthur, obviously.

Also, sorry for my wonky thumbnail. It just grows like that. D:

Do you do the same thing for putting hair in plushies?

For traditional sewn plushies, no. Cutting a hole through fabric would usually be a bad idea. You'd need fur fabric or a weft for those.

What do you use to cut the slits/holes? I have been slitting the throat and underbelly of mine and threading plugs of MLP hair bought from dollyhair.com up through the piece to where I want it to go. I don't use glue, as the knot will catch inside the sculpture, then I just close up the slit and cover any of my knot with more wool. That probably made no sense...I would like not to have so many knots visible in the end as it is totally hard felting over nylon fiber.

I don't always do my hair this way, sometimes I felt it on, but recently everyone want the real MLP hair.
