DIY Hair towel inspired by the Turbie Twist

I have just discovered this product, the Turbie Twist at my local drug store. I loved the idea because up until recently , I always wrapped a big towel over my head after the shower. I would go on to do other things before taking the towel off and let my hair air-dry or the towel would fall off on it own, many times. My neck would get tired from the weight of the towel, blah blah blah…:-) This is different, it stays nicely and securely on my head and because the towel is small, my neck would never get tired. The Turbie Twist is $6.99 at my drug store. 

So, because I can’t get enough of it, I tried making more…:)

Here is the template I created.

I used an old towel for this project, it’s already been used and washed many times so it’s perfectly soft and very absorbant.

I folded the towel in half, lengthwise and traced the pattern on to the towel

Took it to the machine and sewed along the marked line. I used black thread here so you can see but matching thread would be nice :-) oh,… and don’t forget to insert an elastic into the indicated spot. I actually used one of my elastic hair bands. The one where you get like a million in a pack at the drug store.  

Then I trimmed the excess away

All that left was to turn it inside out and we’re done :-)

Here is now you use it!  

I think this would make great Christmas gift. Try it!

DIY Circle Zip Earbud Pouch

Hey guys! 

I found this awesome tutorial from this blog a while back and finally got a chance to try it out for myself. If you check out Erin’s post, it has an excellent step by step instruction with pictures but I took my pictures anyways. Here they are…

I used Erin’s pattern. You should too if you want to make this. They’re perfect!

I skipped the topstitching at the end because I happened to like the way it looks without it.

If you haven’t noticed, I used my scrap fabric that’s left from this reupholstery project. I had to piece together a bunch of pieces to make the circles but it came out great anyways :-)

This would make great hand-made holiday gift, don’t you think!?
