Vintage Head Wrap {Tutorial}

I have three daughters. On good days they like to play with their hair a bit, but in the summer, all of us are more than likely to pull it up. These head wraps are a wonderful accessory for the easy-peasy summer-do. Currently, I am loving the vintage linens colors and prints, so I made three Vintage Head Wraps to share with my little ladies.

First, I made a head wrap tracer. At the widest it measures 2 3/4 inches, the narrow end measures 1 1/2 inches, the length is 16 inches. Place the wide end of the tracer on the fold of the material.

Pin the tracer to the fabric and cut {making sure the thick end is on the fold}. I used a rolled hem foot on my machine to make a small hem around the edges {You could also use a zig-zag stitch around perimeter to seal edges}. Once the hems are done, you can leave as is - or add embellishments like a ruffle or coiled flower.

My lovely middle daughter {Bean} is modeling one of our Vintage Head Wraps. I have made a lot of these beauties, and the great thing is that they fit any head. The long, narrow strip allows for tying off under your hair, at the nape of the neck. 

These make great summer Biddle or accessories for your friends.
