Today, I’d like to share a tutorial on how to create your own head wraps and nose masks. Hopefully, you’ll find the process simple and enjoyable! As a fashion designer, there will be times when you have so many leftover materials that you don’t know what to do with them. You might even throw them away, and that’s not the best thing to do. Before going on to tell you how to make a head-wrap and a nose mask from leftover materials, I’ll start by telling you the different functions of these two fashion accessories:
Headwraps are made up of multiple materials, such as cotton, silk, leather, and plastic. They usually come in one size only, which can either be round, oval, or rectangular. However, there are also custom-made headwraps, which are designed by the customer with different sizes, shapes, and colors. A headwrap has a wide variety of uses, such as using it as a necktie for formal events or wearing it around your neck during casual outings. They can also be used to protect your head and ears from extreme weather conditions.
Nose masks are made up of plastic, cotton, silk, and other materials. They usually have a thin rubber band around the nose area. A nose mask can be used as protective equipment during sports activities, especially when they involve high temperatures and high levels of humidity. It can also be used as a fashion accessory in the same way as a headwrap. In this article, I will teach you how to make a headwrap and a nose mask from leftover materials. I’ll start with the headwrap, and then move on to the nose mask.
How To Create Head Wraps
The best way to create head wraps is by following these simple steps. You can be sure that you will have a beautiful and unique head wrap that will last for years to come.
Steps to Make A Head Wrap
1: Start with a cotton or silk scarf that you like, but it must be of the right size to fit your head. The scarf should cover the top of your head, just below your ears.
2: Tie the scarf around your neck and make sure that the ends are secured at the back.
3: Use a large safety pin to secure the scarf so that it doesn’t fall off.
How To Create Nose Masks
There are two different types of nose masks available: the nose mask with a nose strap, and the nose mask without a nose strap.
Steps to Make A Nose Mask
Without A Nose Strap
1: Start with a piece of material that is wide enough to cover your nose and mouth
2: Fold the material in half lengthwise
3: Fold it again, this time making it into a tube shape. What’s more, don’t forget to make it big enough to cover your nostrils completely
4: Sew the edges of the material together with a sewing machine
5: Use a pair of scissors to cut out a piece that covers your nose
In brief, you can use the same material as you did for the headwrap
With a Nose Strap
1: Start by folding the material so that you get two pieces that are parallel to each other
2: Cut the material into two equal parts. Therefore, you will have two pieces that are long enough to cover your nostrils and mouth completely
3: Place one piece over the other and make sure that they are aligned properly
4: Sew them together
5: Cut out another piece that covers your nose
As I have shown you in the above-mentioned steps, you can use the same material. You may want to change the color, design, and size if you want your nose mask to be unique.
Sewing the Nose Mask Once you have the right materials and the right design, it’s time to sew them together. As a beginner, I recommend using a sewing machine for this project.
If you don’t own a sewing machine, you can use a needle and thread. For those who don’t know how to use a sewing machine, I’m sure that the instructions will help you.
