✨WHAT WE NEED✨

 

💖COMPLETED WIGS

If this is your first time making a wig, please mail a sample in for feedback before investing more time and money into additional wigs. Don’t crochet? Contact me to get approval to receive wig kits. NEW!! In order to receive wig kits, you will need to purchase a membership in The Magic Circle so that you have access to the video tutorials.  The kits only include the crocheted beanie and accessories. You are responsible for the remainder of the materials for the wig. Walmart.com has a wig stand tripod for about $14 or you can make your own from wood blocks and a dowel rod. Sally’s Beauty Supply sells 21″ foam heads or you can buy them on Amazon (please use Amazon Smile and select The Magic Yarn Project as your designated charity). The elastic is on Amazon, search 1mm elastic cord.

💖 CHARACTER AND SUPERHERO BEANIES

Current Character and Superhero Beanie Needs:

We need all of them. Our greatest need at this time is for Spider-man beanies. Please use the Magic Yarn Project beanie for all of the character and superhero beanies.  This means that if you find a pattern for a double crochet beanie and logo, just make the logo from the pattern and attach it to a Magic Yarn beanie.  The same for beanies with masks.  Instead of crocheting a double crochet beanie and attaching a mask, add the mask to a Magic Yarn beanie.  Free crochet patterns can be found here:
