That is an awesome idea!! I always wanted fabric curlers, I was just not sure how to make them.  Wink

They held up fairly well, and I'm sure if I used any product it would have been even better by the end of the day.  I walk to and from my car twice with a good amount of wind, so I think they were curlier before I left work.  Here's what they looked like when I got home:

And hopefully that will be all of the cheesy pics! Cheesy

incredible!  I meant to buy some curlers today, but I forgot them while looking for something else.  Also, I have been looking for a new project and have all of the supplies.  It was meant to be!  Thanks for posting this!  Yours are also cuter than the expensive ones  Cheesy

my mom used to put foam curlers in my hair on saturday nights when i was a kid so i would have curls for church on sunday. i think the length of time they were in definitely helped the curls stay put. or.... try putting them in when your hair's a tad damp and let it dry with them in?

at any rate, those rock. very cute and old timey. love them.

I remember my mom rolling my wet hair up with strips of fabric at night, then me having to sleep on the lumpiness and then having lots of trouble pulling the knots out of the now-tightened fabric the next morning. 

These look like they'd be SO much simpler and infinitely more gentle!!

Great job and thanks for the link to the tut  Grin

I absolutley love them, the results are great, even the after pics. I really love how my hair looks with curlers, but never have enough time to make all the process and get the kids ready too, it simplifys everything!!! and also, I have long long hair, I didnt want to cut it off until I can use it with curlers a couple of times, because I love it with some soft big curles and long, but never find big curlers or they are so expensive (for no time to use them)... so I can make them bigger to make that effect, I really love it, and I have to try it now, thank you very much for share it... beautifull hair by the way!!

These are SOOO awesome...this definitely rocks Smiley

I may have to try this, as I gave up on curling my hair ages ago because the curlers were too hard to sleep on.

Well, Craftster sure does boost your ego, even if this wasn't my idea!  Thank you everyone for such awesome words about the product, the outcome, and my hair in general!  I'm actually getting it cut this Friday.  I was planning on getting a sizable chunk taken off, but now that I've made these, I think I'll just get a trim.  I can't make them obsolete so soon, and I bet these will be great for the summer.

I recommend these curlers to anyone with an ounce of sewing skill.  Not only were they easy to make and use, they are hands down, the most comfortable curlers.  Ever.  Before these, I used my mom's old hot rollers (I remember her using them on me in the 80s, so they are at least 25 years old), but they aren't the best things for my hair AND it added about 20 minutes onto my morning routine, between rolling and setting/cooling.  Plus, I'd prefer to always let my hair air dry if possible, but sometimes my hair gets frizzy without some heat while styling.  These totally eliminate the heat AND the frizz, so they definitely fit the bill!
