I can thank my friend Brooke Lambert for this one. This was a custom order from her to make head wraps from H2O at Home microfiber cloths. Look at the photo and you can see the shape and measurements. I added elastic, loop, and random button. Great gift for the girl with some hair. I can just picture myself wearing one of these at my dressing table Joan Crawford style penciling my EYEBROWS.
Yes the creative process that begins with an idea and ends with a sumpin’ is alive and well in the Dabbler Studio. Cool post-modern fabric (Windham Fabrics presents 30’s Brights Circa 1930 Pattern No, 23387), vinyl, white felt backing.
When I took this on, I had no idea that it would take so long, give me carpal tunnel, and need so many pairs of jeans. I got half way done and had to SOS on Facebook to get more. At my distress, my friend Lindsey (who a lot of weight and quite a few sizes) gave me a stack of dungarees to finish up.
The thing I like about it is that when I took apart the jeans, I cut all the strips on the grain. This gave it a nice finish – like wood paneling. I cut strips in 3 to 9inch strips. The total for the width of the strips came to 60 inches. I sewed them together on the short ends to create strips that were 108 inches. Then sewed all the strips together long ways. I kept the edges raw to they would fray and be distressed.
