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

Materials Needed

1 yard Satin or silk charmeusse

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.

Cut two of the pattern you can use the same colour or different colours.



After cutting  Pin together right sides facing


Stitch around leave an opening


Turn inside out


Pin around


Stitch around to make casing.


Pull elastic through, the elastic is 19 inches long.


Pull elastic and stitch together


Slip stitch opening.


Cut away all the threads.






If you would like to receive one of these caps leave a comment below and I will draw a winner next week Friday. You can enter as many times as you like.


I used to select the winner and the winner for this giveaway is Tariro Jack.


Congratulations Tariro!

    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.

    If this stays on the head through the night, I am sold! Coz madhuku, mapulling socks – not very sightly!

    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
