A few weeks ago I came up with a design for satin caps but I did not post the pattern.

1 yard 1/2 inch wide elastic

Matching thread for sewing.

 

The pattern is basically a 20 inch diameter circle, but if you want you can download the pattern and instructions here.

    Lovely. One big plus is that I can put it on for some minutes after waking up or before going to bed in public – unlike the "popular" pulling sock . I find the pulling stocking embarassing – a pant on my head. Just wondering if it wont slip off the head coz of the material.

      No it doesn’t. It stays put throughout the night.

    Thanks Tafadzwa, have been sitting on the material for my daughters for a month whilst trying to decide how exactly to make the cap – the tutorial is simple enough to follow and will give it a shot
