Recycled Sweater Headwrap Tutorial!
Hello there, friends!
How's your new year going? Ours is going pretty great! I jokingly told my husband that this year he's going to have to start being my life coach. I need someone to show me how to be organized! So he promptly sat down and made me a list of all the imperative tasks for each day and when would be the best time to do them. According to the list, right now I should be...(looks at list)...homeschooling Paige. :o) Look, Paige! Today's lesson is on how to write a blog post! (Hehe.)
So how about a little tutorial today? I made this headwrap last night and I wanted to share it with you. I don't want to toot my own horn, but I love this little thing!
Made from a hand-me-down sweater that didn't fit, it only has 3 steps, and hardly a stitch sewn!
Want to try one? (Yes, Disney, we do!)
- Cut a long rectangle from an old sweater. Your desired size + 1/2" seam allowance. Mine was 5"x21".
- Hem the sides. You can try this on the sewing machine (with a zigzag stitch), but sewing a knitted sweater can be pretty difficult to get good results with, so I used this fabric glue I had on hand. If you choose to glue it, try to get a washable fabric glue.
- pin the ends, right sides together and sew with a zigzag stitch.
Take care not to let the ends shift so they match up nicely. And you're done!
Wear it plain or add an embellishment! I had this adorable flower that my mom crocheted for Paige's fourth birthday that I stitched on.
Wear and enjoy your toasty ears!
I hope you find a few minutes to make one! It's so snuggly to wear. And somehow I like it a little better than a hat. By the way, this could easily be a headband if you changed the width to 3" or so!
Have a wonderful day, whatever you're doing!
