DIY Head Wrap | How to Make a Head Wrap

My daughter and I share a large assortment of colors and patterns to mix and match with just about any outfit we own. She loves a wrap too.

Yeah we’re in trouble as she gets older!

Anyway, on to the tutorial! Did I mention the hair wrap is super easy to make! And a great scrap buster!!!

Sewing a Flower Head Wrap


What Materials Do I Need for a Head Wrap?

To create a stylish and comfortable head wrap, you'll need fabric (I used woven today), fabric scissors or rotary cutter, elastic or a stretchy band, and basic sewing supplies. Cut the fabric to size, secure it with elastic, and sew the edges for a clean finish. With these materials, you can create a fashionable and versatile head wrap that reflects your style.

Pattern Pieces

Before we get started, you need to make sure and download the headwrap pdf sewing pattern pieces I made up for you:

Cutting the Headwrap

First, decide on your head wrap fabric. Then, get your pattern and let’s start cutting:

  • Cut 1 headband on the fold


  • Cut 3 leaves out of another piece of fabric


  • Cut 1 strip for the flower. To do this I start by making a small cut in the long edges of the fabric and then I rip it all the way up to get a raw edge.





Head Wrap Instructions:

Step 1: Press long sides of the head wrap piece in 1/4″. Press in another 1/4″. Topstitch both long sides.


Step 2: Press short ends in 1/4″. Press in another 1/4″. Topstitch both long sides.


Step 3: Fold the wrap in half to find the center. Starting pinning the strip for the flower just to the right of the center. It doesn’t mater which side it goes on. Fold the strip over as you go so that you only see the right side of the fabric. Continue to fold it around until your flower looks like you want it. I only ended up using about half of the strip of fabric I ripped. On some of the head wraps I made I used smaller pieces because that’s what I had in my scrap pile. Use as much as you like to give you the desired effect you want for your wrap.


Step 4: Once your flower looks like you want it, sew a straight line in the center to hold it in place. Then you will sew a square around that line, followed by an octagon around the outside edge. This doesn’t have to be perfect and if it’s a little wonky it will help give your head wrap some character!



Step 5: Find the half way point again, on the other side of the flower sew on two of the leaves. To do this, start with 1 leaf. Sew straight down the middle, and then around the edges. Again this doesn’t need to be perfect and looks good when it’s not. Next sew the second leaf on the same way. On the other side of the flower you will add the third leaf. Once those are sewn on, your head wrap is complete!


Now go wear each wrap in your unwashed mom hair with pride! or wash you hair and wear them to be an overacheiver. Whatever works!
