This might be my most random tutorial yet, but it's been on my to-do list for a while! Maybe I'm the only one to think it's cool, but I really like having something to wrap my hair up in after my shower. Apparently G likes it too since he had it on before he even got out of the tub, and wouldn't let me take it off!
You will need:
- Pattern - Download the Adult Pattern / Download the Child Pattern
- Fun, Patterned Fabric: Fat quarter for child's version / 1/3 yard for adult version
- Terry cloth: Fat quarter for child's version / 1/3 yard for adult version
- 5" of round elastic cord
- Coordinating thread
Next, put your outside panels together, right sides together and sew along the round edge, using a 1/2" seam allowance. Leave the straight side open.
Then match your terry cloth pieces together and sew along the round edge, using a 1/2" seam allowance. Leave the straight side open. Turn your patterned piece right side out, and insert into the terry cloth piece.
Cut a 5" length of your elastic cord and tie a knot at one end to make a loop.
Insert the loop between your patterned and terry cloth layers, with the loop end in/knot end facing out. Stitch in place on the terry cloth a few times to make your life easier.
Using a 1/2" seam, sew your terry cloth and fabric layers together, all the way around, leaving about 5" open for turning. Turn out and edge stitch 1/8" to 1/4" all the way around, closing your opening.
Hand stitch the button to the wrap, as shown (about 5" up from the back on the child version and 6" up from the back on the adult version).
