Homemade Scrub Cap


It’s day 2 of my Pinterest Challenge and here’s the project I chose to do:

Today I attempted a project that could have so many creative possibilities! I made a scrub cap. You could do so many fun pattern/color combinations when you get to pick everything!

This was a well-done tutorial: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=195693.0

I didn’t have any double-fold bias tape so I used grosgrain ribbon for the edging & tie. The only thing I will do differently next time, is I would make the ribbon/tie longer. I know it doesn’t need to be very long (it’s not like you want a long, flowing bow running down your back) but I didn’t think it was quite long enough to tie a good bow that would stay. And the second time I stitched around the inside, I did a zig-zag stitch for extra durability.

But other than that — love!

It probably took me about an hour, maybe a little more — but that’s because it takes longer to pin ribbon along the edge than it would have to pin bias tape. I highly recommend this one!

There’s the back (sorry, my dog likes to lay next to me when I sit down so she’s in some of my pictures…).

And there it is flattened. You could make the bottom part one material & the top another, bright colored edging, oh the possibilities!

I hope you enjoyed this one! Check back tomorrow for another Pinterest Challenge Project!
