Previously, I provided a tutorial on how to transform a bandana into a rockabilly hair wrap: http://poofhawk.blogspot.com/2013/02/bandana-to-rosie-wrap-tutorial.html . You can use the previous tutorial to help draft your own pattern or you can purchase Poofhawk's Rockabilly Hair Wrap Pattern here: https://www.etsy.com/listing/124556747/rosie-wrap-sewing-pattern-pdf-sewing-diy . Poofhawk's version of the rockabilly hair wrap is a little different then most. With Poofhawk, bigger is always better. So our wrap has the same comfortable overall width, but with bigger and more oval shaped tie ends. Putting a cute twist on this style of hair wrap. Now even with your own pattern, this post will show you on how to sew a rockabilly hair wrap from scratch! Enjoy!
Here's What You'll Need:
- 1/4 Yard of Fabric
- Rockabilly Hair Wrap Pattern
- Sewing Machine
- Dress Pins
- Ironing Board
Step 1: (If you already have your own pattern, skip this step). Print out all three pieces of the pattern. Tape each piece together matching the T's. Cut pattern out.
Step 2: Pin pattern on the fold of your fabric. Cut 2 pieces out.
Step 3: Pin both wrap pieces with right sides together. Sew with 1/4" seam allowance leaving a turning hole on the bottom.
Step 4: Before turning, trim seam allowance to about 1/8" and clip vertically where the points are. Turn wrap right side out and press. Pin where your turning hole is and topstitch around the entire wrap.
And Your Finished!
