I decided to take some of the old worn out towels we have and turn them into more hair wraps, because mine is falling apart (very sad). I used the old turbie twist to cut this one out, measured seem allowance from the old one and sewed away. I think it turned out great, it's a little bit shorter then the original, but that's ok.

Comparing the two.



Please let me know if this isn't the right board!

Mine came out to 24 inches. Here's an awesome tutorial. I didn't measure mine until after it was done, so the next one I make I will pay a little more attention. It's just a little short and my hair kind of wraps up in the end.

awesome thanks for the link. How long is your hair? mine is just between my chin and shoulders. I wonder if that length would work? I'll investigate the tutorial. Smiley

Mine is just below my bra (if that makes sense) line. But I didn't use the tutorial (I should have) I just laid my old one down and started cutting, lol.

Cool. Thanks for the info! I have to get some new towels soon and may retire a few of my old ones in this manner. Thinking they would make some great gifts too come christmas. Smiley

That's a cute idea to recycle old towels. Unfortunately I don't have any  Embarrassed. Well, I have to visit a yard sale soon. Maybe I can sneak away to one without DH knowing.....

I love these! My mom did this a few years ago, because she didn't want to pay full price for the name brand ones lol. And my mom is actually kinda anti-crafty lol! (I get it from my grandma and aunt I guess!)

I have all but retired my old one, due to the elastic totally coming out, so I need to make myself one more so one can be in the wash and one to use. They really are fantastic.
