Rockabilly Hair Wrap Sewing from Scratch Tutorial

Previously, I provided a tutorial on how to transform a bandana into a rockabilly hair wrap: . You can use the previous tutorial to help draft your own pattern or you can purchase Poofhawk's Rockabilly Hair Wrap Pattern here: . 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
  • Iron
  • Ironing Board
  • Scissors
  • Tape
  • Thread

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!
