DIY Twisted Towel Hair Wrap

I am going to show you how you can make a Twisted Towel Hair Wrap. I own a Turbie Twist Towel, I use it all the time. I have been wanting to make my own ever since I bought this one. I am wearing the Turbie Twist out! {Don't own a Turbie Twist, you can do it still! PROMISE}

You will want to get:
Towel fabric or a Towel from your closet. 
(i used a cheap one from Walmart)
Pattern (You can make one... just look at the shape.)
Sewing Machine
4 1/2 inches of 1/4 elastic

Fold your towel in half.
Lay your pattern on top.

Give yourself about 1 inch for seam allowance.
Go ahead and cut around the pattern.

Now that its all cut out, separate the two pieces.

Fold over the straight edge, to make a hem, and pin in place.

Sew with a zigzag stitch.

Next you will want to put the pieces on top of each other, with right sides touching. Put a pin a both ends.

On the larger side, measure up 4 inches and mark with a pin.

You will then fold your elastic in half and place it at the 4 inch mark. With the ends touching the outer edge and the loop end towards the inside. Pin it in place.

Pin all the way around.

Sew with an overcasting and or a zigzag stitch all the way around.

Flip it inside out...

My ten-year-old would think this is the coolest thing ever. Who would have guessed that hair towels would make kids feel so grown up? Thanks for the great tutorial, and thanks for sharing this week at One Creative Weekend!

I bought one just like this at Target this summer and love it. I've been wanting to make one for my stepdaughter but haven't gotten around to it. You make it look so simple!

I've never owned a Turbie, but my quick and easy no-sew solution is wrapping a towel on my head turban-style and securing in place with a scrunchie. If I knew how to sew more than buttons, I'd be stitching these up for gifts for my swimming friends.
