Fabric Headwrap

Today's the first day of summer!

Here's an easy little tutorial to make your own fabric headwrap. Super easy, and cute!

Start off with two seperate pieces of material (one printed for the outside and one solid piece for the lining). These were 45" long and 5" wide.

Don't be lazy like I was. Please iron your fabric! :)

After I finished this project I realized that 5" wide was too thick for me, so I wore it folded it in half. That worked just fine but you might want to cut down your measurement to about 2.5-3" wide if you didn't want to have to fold it over.

Take your material and place right sides together.

Sew along the outer edges all the way around using a 1/4" seam allowance. Leave a 1-2 inch opening at one end of your wrap.

Trim around the entire "sewn" part of your wrap, making sure not to cut into the seams. Clip an angle at each corner as shown below.

Turn your wrap right side out and use a dowel or the eraser end of a pencil to push the corners out.

Fold the material in from the un-sewn opening at the end of the wrap and press.

Top-stitch around the entire wrap using a 1/4" seam or less.

And there you have it. Perfect for summer!
