It takes a few minutes then you are done. These simple steps will guide you in making your hair bonnet. All you need is two pieces of satin and pattern fabric with 15 inches (38.1 cm) length and width, thread and needle, scissors, elastic, and tape measure.
1. Fold each piece of fabric into four. Place your tape measure at the folded edge and measure12.7 inches (17.78 cm) all around and cut across the measurement to get a circular piece of fabric.
2. Place the two pieces together with right sides facing each other and the wrong sides upwards. Stitch along the edges and leave 2 inches (5.08 cm) gap. Turn the right side out through the gap and press.
3. Measure 5 inches (12.7 cm) inward from the edge, mark and stitch around. Mark another 3 inches (7.62 cm) inward like you did earlier and stitch around leaving 2 inches (5.08 cm) gap at the same place where the first gap is.
4. Measure around your head and use it to cut the length of your elastic. Insert your elastic in between the 5 inches (12.7 cm) and the 3 inches (7.62 cm) measurement gap and stitch the elastic together.
5. Stitch the first and the second gap. And you’re done.
