I have been looking for stocking stuffers, and ran across this tutorial from Skip to my Lou, her blog has so much great info, and is fun to read.
I followed her tutorial. I purchased a bath towel from Wal-Mart that was $2.50, by folding this in two, I was able to make one from each towel, with a little leftover to make a small face towel.
I just bought one towel as a trial run, now I’m off to buy 20 towels and more elastic.
Mini microfiber hair wrap
I have short hair, and the regular size hair wrap is a little larger than I need, so I experimented with a smaller towel. I wouldn’t go any smaller than the size below and if you measure a standard hand towel it is approx. 16 inches x 27 inches. This would be the perfect size.
I purchased two microfiber, (which absorbs water wonderfully), tea towels (size is approx. 25 inches x 12 inches) from the Dollar Tree, price 1.00 a piece, they come in several bright colors. I picked green.
I roughly traced what I thought would be a good shape for the size of my towel, and cut it out.
This a good size if you have short hair, the towel is quick to dry and easy to use.
The only change I would make in the instructions is, I would move the elastic band up to 5 or 6 inches from the edge, because the “tail” is not as long to catch in it, (I think this would work well for a standard size hand towel as well.
Then, in just a few moments, a great stocking stuffer for any gal in the family.
Hope this gives you some ideas for the holidays.
