I'm also curious how long it held during the day. My hair is terribly thick and straight. I don't think those curls would last long on my head.

But they look gorgeous, your fabric curlers as well as the result! Cheesy

i must make these! my hair only curls nice when i leave curlers in at night, but it hurts to sleep on most, these look comfy Smiley my hair hates curling and the only thing that worked to sleep on and be comfotable was wrapping my hair around strips of fabric then tying them but it made awkward curls, i'll have to try these! yours turned out lovely Smiley

this does not apply to the craft...
though i am considering making them

but this is advice to make the curls hold better

if your hair is allready dry. than you curl each section witha  curling iron (just to get it warm) than wrap that around the curler untill cool they will hold a ton better

That is awesome! I need to get better at making buttonholes, and this is just the project that will help me do that! I have very straight fine blonde hair, and I am sick of it just laying there. I am so going to try this. Smiley

 I'm thinking that if I use product in my hair to help it set, I should be able to wash these as needed. It can't hurt to try it with a few of them. I'll try it out with some fabric scraps I don't care about first, and see how they hold up in the wash.

you should be able to get a curl setting lotion (i think that's what it's called) at a local beauty supply store. you apply to your hair while it's damp before you roll it at night so you can just finger-comb your curls the next day.

very lovely results!

These look wonderful. I am definately going to have to give them a go. I think the beads and gingham look darling, definately a good thing you lost your button box..

Beautiful hair by the way.

Ack! I must say, this makes me a little bitter... I recently bought $40 worth of hair curlers for my hair, and your curlers are cuter and give better curls! The curls looked great, and yeah, I'm going to echo the rest of us, and wonder how well it held through the day!

wow! this is the perfect way for me to use up all my scraps of fabric! and they would make cool presents! thanks for sharing! Grin

These look very comfortable.  I'm always afraid to try leave-in curlers because they seem like a throw back to a beauty ≠ comfort era, but these look really cool.  good job!

If my hair stood any chance of actually holding a curl, I would totally make these. Your hair looks so pretty!
