Those disposable hats hospital staff wear to the operating theatre? So environmentally unfriendly. Single-use helps with infection control, but hair nets used in hospitals for routine surgeries aren’t sterilised so as long as a clean one is worn, it serves the purpose.
Many people have reusable ones, so I decided to sew a few.
I’m talking about these!
So I took one home and dissected it.
>I chose this moustache fabric.
>Just laid it down and cut. Because the lower part will be folded up when worn, I cut an extra layer to line the inside bit, which will become the outside when folded.
>Overlock all the edges. Also overlocked the two long pieces together at the bottom edge to join them, and the sides.
Pin and sew :D
>Bias tape time! I haven’t stepped into the scary territory of making my own bias tape. Ready-made ones will do. Plain black goes with the fabric anyway.
>Prototype – Version 1.0
> I also made another two from a velveteen porcupine fabric, and a cotton piggy fabric.
> All three stitched up!
It was well-received! Yay :)
