CRAFTING KEEPS ME FROM GOING CRAZY!!!!

« on: December 30, 2009 10:47:50 PM »

So my mom went back to work as a scrub tech after 3 years of being stay at home grandma and wanted some cute hats. She handed me this cute hat she had bought and wanted to know if I could try to make one for her here are my handy works, and she likes the way I make the front better she says it holds the sweat better. Please enjoy.









Tut
Moms Scrub cap
Materials needed:
1/2 yd of material for puff of the hat
1/4 yd material for the band
-alternative 2 fat quarters for the Puff allow for a seam in center of the puff
-1 fat quarter for the band or a scrap large enough
- if want the hat all same material can all be done with 1/2 yd material
Interfacing for the band
1/4 in wide elastic
1 Cord stop

Cut:
21 inch circle  (cut 1)
Band 15 in long and in the middle 2 1/4 in gradually getting smaller toward end (cut 1 fabric and interfacing)
1/4 in elastic 14 in piece

Steps:
Cut out the circle and the band.
Apply the interfacing to the band and if ironing fold in half length ways.
Cut a 2 in chunk out the middle of the back. Make sure this is at the back center of the circle.
Serge the edge of the circle. I don't have a serger so I zig zag stitch around and when you get to the missing section you just cut then you fold under and continue sewing around circle.  
To work bouffant Folds in front of puff (fold toward front).
Mark the center front.
 1. Measure 3 inches from the center on both sides, fold over the material so the right sides touch and fold back with a 1 1/2 in fold.  
 2. Measure 1 1/2 in away from last fold and create a 1 in fold toward front.
 3. Measure 1 1/2 in away from last fold and create a 1 in fold toward front.
 4. Measure 1 in away from last fold and 3/4 in fold toward front.
Repeat 1-4  on other side of middle fold.
You should have a 8 folds and the center two should be about 3 in apart.

Find the center of the band (fold in half to find center)
Pin center of band to the center of the hat (between the folds).
Pin the band along the folds of the hat. Band should end roughly about the same area as the folds end. Starting just before the band sew the band to the Circle.

I turn the hat and run a small seam to hold the folds and to keep the band down.
Turn the hat creating a in channel along the rest of the circle. Sew a seam for the elastic making sure to keep the ends open to start and finish the elastic.

Run the elastic in the channel you have made in the hat.
Sew the ends of the elastic as close to the band end as possible. Then close the channel or you will get a weir poof.

Now you have to put on the Cord stop at then end of the hat. The easiest way I have found to do this is to take a piece of yarn and thread it through the stop and then loop the yarn around the elastic and pull the yarn through pulling the elastic through at the same time.

Put a knot in the elastic to prevent loosing the stop.
Wear and enjoy. If this is not clear or you have questions please let me know
I hope this works for you this is my first tut.

Being a nurse who has worked OR, Cath Lab, ICU, NICU, etc., I can appreciate these scrub caps! You did a great job on these! What a wonderful daughter you are to do that for your mother! I'm sure she sports these to work and proudly tells everyone that you sewed these for her!
Did you put a tie or elastic on the back/bottom of the cap (or band)?  It sortof looks as though the band tapers at the back underside of the cap...
Would love to make one, but can't figure out how big to make the "poufy" bonnet part!
Thanks for sharing!

The poofy part of the hat is just a 22 in circle and it is gathered with elastic and a cincer at the back so she can pull it tight. 
I made her all these and then I had to have surgery and as they were putting on one of those cheep blue disposable caps on me I was mad I could have made one for myself to wear during surgery. Oh well hope that helps.

Oh my goodness, surgery.... I trust you recuperating well.
Thank you for the size info on the pouffy part of the cap and the other little details!
Take care and get well soon!

I am so glad I found your tutorial!!! My daughter wants me to make her some scrub caps.
I have a question about the step where you:
"Cut a 2 in chunk out the middle of the back. Make sure this is at the back center of the circle."
Will the circle then have a hole in the middle?? I'm not wanting to cut the fabric until I know for sure.
Thanks for sharing your tutorial.

The hole is at the very back of the hat to allow the hat to be adjusted.

I am still trying to get one of these made. I'm still uncertain about cutting the "chunk" out of the back, but I have another question.

You wrote" When you get to the missing section you just cut then you fold under and continue sewing around circle." 
Do I surge/zigzag around the turned under "v" notch that was just cut off OR put the two pieces together to make a dart?

Does the band have a finished edge (fabric turned under) on the inside of the hat?
My job is interfering with having time to sew is why I haven't started this project, but DD is ready for some scrub caps so I have to make the time somewhere.
Sorry to bother you with so many questions, I just want to be sure I (kind of) know what I'm doing before cutting the fabric.
