Pattern Shopping at the Airport

Filed under: Accessories — phyllisc @ 11:10 pm

Hi – Phyllis here. My daughter (that’s her above) has a vexing habit of using big bath towels when she washes her hair, and inevitably she leaves them all over the house. This past Saturday we were heading home from vacation, and she found this in a duty-free shop at the airport. This very cute spa head wrap couldn’t be simpler – it’s two pieces of terry (you can use bath towels), a loop and a button. And it sews up in about 20 minutes.

If you want to get fancy a monogram is a nice touch. It’s one size fits all, and they make great gifts.

You can see a more detailed review on Pattern Review.



  1. What a great idea! I have “hair towels” that are just a little too small to wrap around the way I like, and big towels are, well, too big. I gotta make one of these!

  3. Hey, that’s my idea!

    Well, I wasn’t so considerate as to draft a downloadable pattern.

  4. Actually – it’s not even close to being original. There are a few of these on the web, if you read the comments on PR.

  5. Love it! I have one like this (was a ‘gift with purchase’ when I bought some hair products…can’t remember which brand). My husband, Nick, calls it my ‘toaster cover’. Barbara Elfman Bell.–>
