The New Kerchief

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.

    That is really pretty Sister!!!! Maybe you should make the other 2 and sell them on eBay. Headcoverings sell really well on there especially when they are white veilings.

    Good job!!!!

    Thanks, Ladies! I had thought of selling a couple when this one turned out fairly well.

    What is a good price to charge for a “step above” covering like this one?

    Start it out at $3 and charge $2 for shipping. Any more and I don’t think anyone would bid on them (eBay). I have seen coverings start out at $4 and they went up to $15! Garlands of Grace sells theirs for $4.99 so that’s why I said start yours at $3. πŸ˜‰

    Bless U!
