How to Sew and Sell head wraps

by Contributor

Head wraps are popular but the selection is boring. Why not make your own and make so money in the process. A friend once asked me to make a few head wraps for his mother who had lost her hair due to chemo. He wanted to help her regain her sense of beauty and I was pleased to help.

Items you will need

  • Fabric
  • Sewing machine
  • Iron
  • scissors
Step 1

Fabric usually comes 45 inches wide folded. Purchase 2 yards and cut up the middle along the fold line. Now you have two pieces of 22 1/2 inches by 72 inches long. These will make two head wraps.

Step 2

Press and fold a half inch along the edges length wise on both sides and then along the top and bottom (short sides)

Step 3

Straight stitch along your new folded edges top and bottom and lengthwise. This will prevent your fabric from fraying and create a nice and neat head wrap.

Step 4

Crank out a slew of these in all different colors and sell them at your local flea market. You can also market them at your local cancer centers, better yet donate a few instead. You can use a softer fabric and make scarves to ware around ones neck.

Tips

  • Choose nice bold fabrics for your head wraps Hancock fabrics and Joann fabric are a great place to select funky fabric.
