I want to make little snoods from fabric for when I don't feel like doing my hair. I want it to be like this-

But without the cord tie, and shorter. Any ideas?

We make these in the theatre.  Let's see if I can describe what we do well enough ...  Smiley

I start with an oval of fabric (I always have to play with the size to get it right).  Gather the top 1/3 to 1/2 onto a ribbon or band (this will be the top of the head).  The bottom part, I make acasing and run elastic through (easy to get it on and tuck hair into).

I have also done it with darts in the top instead of gathering.  It just takes a little more fitting.

Pretty simple.  It does have to have a couple of bobbypins to hold it on, though.

Hope that may help a little.

We do them all the time for Ren fairs, ours are a circle base gathered or pleated to a ribbon or narrow cloth band with bobbie pins or even a comb sewn in the front.

I've done a few with a bias binding that doubles as a casing and threading super skinny elastic, add in a hair comb and I'm set for a day.

same principle as chimerix just a differant base shape.  I suspect the oval will work better if you have longer hair, the circle better for shorter (as in shoulder length or less)
