My weekend experiment in head covering sewing! I borrowed the long kerchief design from Wendy’s Modest Dress. First, I sketched out the pattern on my trusty brown poster paper (comes in a roll.) Then I cut it out of my fabric. I chose a light-weight cotton “eyelet” that has circles embroidered on it but no holes. This is the final result:
I made a headband of sorts with thin fusible stabilizer. There is elastic and a snap on the under side. The back edge is a rolled hem, makes the fabric a bit fluttery. I thought I’d get a bit fancy with added two loops on the headband for clippies to go through, one on each side of my head.
The only down side of the covering is that I made it a tad too large for my head. 😦 I also have to add another loop in the center of the band to keep it from sliding backwards. Back to the drawing board!
Please excuse my workout gear:
Doesn’t it have nice drape in the back? I have enough fabric to make three more coverings, hopefully.
