Instructables
I made these head wraps for drying your hair. The materials I used were towel fabric, a short length of string, and a button. From a yard of fabric I was able to make four of them. You can modify them if you wish, the emasurements I used will fit most heads.

Step 1: Get some Terry Towel Fabric

Buy some terry towel fabric, (or use an old towel) and fold fabric in half. The pattern should look like half of a teardrop. You need two of these to make the headwrap.

Step 2: Here I'm using an old "turban" to make a pattern for a new one.

The dimensions are around 10 inches across and 26 inches long.

Step 6: Sew button to curved end of headwrap.

Make sure that the loop (added in the previous step) accomodates the button.

Step 7: Headwrap complete.

To use, tilt head down, put end of headwrap with button at the nape of your neck, fitting head into round part of headwrap. Tuck hair into headwrap. Twist extra fabric at forehead towards back of head and fasten with the buttton and loop. I missed the contest for the christmas gifts but I did manage to sew one of these for virtually everyone I knew at Christmas.
This is a great Instructable, but you need to add a main image for the project, even if it's just a video that you're trying to publish.

Please do that, and leave me a message when you have so that we can publish your work.

Thanks!

I made one of these out of a hand towel. I folded it lengthwise, and then cut out the shape. This eliminated the need for finishing the straight edges, was very inexpensive ( I picked up a towel at the dollar store), and also there was none of the mess that sewing terry usually makes!. I put my loop inside the towel before I sewed, eliminated one step. ( I used elastic, copying a turban I had bought). I actually find that I don't need the button, the elastic keeps the twisted towel in place.

Nice Instructable. It would be nice to see the completed head-wrap alone and being worn. It would make a nice intro picture.

I'm planning on having a picture as soon as I can locate a willing victim (ahem) model to wear the headwrap......I'll be willing to mail a sample to the first person who can send me a pic for the intro pic ....any takers?
