➊ Adjust the Clip ➊
Grab the clear hair clip and the ponytail net. Clip the ponytail and clip teeth through the net. Check if it goes around and works, and open and close it. Do this before the next step. You are going to see some strings, you are going to use them later.
➋ Measure & Cut the Wefts ➋
Grab the ponytail net, and take it out of the clip. It is going to look like a square. Make sure the two strings are on the left or right of you. Grab the wefts and put them horizontally. Measure them so they fit from one side to the other. Mark and cut them. Repeat this enough to fill every line horizontally of the patch, and cut them.
Place the first line of weft horizontally. Sew it in a line using a needle and a thread or a sewing machine. Do them one at a time until you fill the patch. Make sure you DO NOT sew on top of the strings, otherwise you are not going to be able to close it.
Sew two or three extra wefts on the opposite side of the patch on top.
Once you finish sewing you should iron or steam the weft on the opposite side, so you can create a curve on top to cover the side filled with hair. This will make it more realistic and voluminous. After that, let the hair cool down in the position you are looking for.
Grab the clear hair clip and repeat what you did in the first step. Make the teeth go through the net and tighten the strings. Tie them together and put them inside the clip before using them. Clip it into your character's wig and done!
And that's it! ♡
