Hello, everyone hope you're all doing great. So last week i made the long braids hair bonnet um with the elastic. So this week i've made the strap as promised. I'M just going to show you with the strap. The only elastic you're going to need is about the the half inch elastic that you're going to use for the bottom and that just meas it measures um six inches long. So yes, let's get into it so you're going to need fabric satin fabric, that measures 50 by 3 inch so times, two so two 50 by three inch satin and then two 50 by three inch, ankara or any other cotton fabric, then also you're, going to need The main part of the hair bonnet, if you've seen my last tutorial the elastic one, then you would know how to make this pattern so we're just going to sew across the bottom like so, and then we're going to join our long strips of fabric as well. I'M going to join them together, so once you join them, it will make about 100 inch long. So we've done that now we're going to sort out the straps so in at the midpoint, where you join the fabric, we're just going to join the two fabrics to each other, so the satin to the ankara fabric, we're starting at the midpoint. So it matches and make sure it's right sides facing each other and then, at the end, edge of your long strip of fabric you're, going to measure two inch inwards and then do a diagonal line like so. It'S just to give it um that nice uh pointy shape at the end of your um strip. You can leave it square if you want so now, i'm just folding. It folding the long strip of fabric together, so i can cut it together. Now we're going to measure our edge second fringe. My head circumference is 24 inch, so on it's from the midpoint on each side of the midpoint, we're going to measure 12 inch. As you can see, my midpoint is where that 12 inch mark is we'll measure that and then the other side as well 12 inch. I hope that makes sense, because we're going to leave that part open. That'S going to be your head second front. So let's say your head: circumference is 22 inch, you're going to do 11 from the midpoint to one side and then 11 from the midpoint to the other side and we're going to sew and stop so we're going to leave that gap open. So that's my 8. Second friends, you can see our midpoint is where we join the fabric. So if you like, i said if your head second friend is 22 inch, then it will be 11 on each side and so on. If it's 20 inch, then it'll be 10 inch on each side, so you measure 10 inch from the midpoint on each side, so we're just going to um turn our fabric. The right side out, like so don't forget, leave that dead, circumference um bit on zone because that's a we're going to sew that to our air, the main part of the bonnet, i'm just going to iron, our straps, so iron. It make sure the seams are nice and flat also we're going to iron the the end edge of the main part of the bonnet just to make it nice and neat if you're making it for yourself. It'S not compulsory, but if you like a nice finished work or if you're selling this then don't skip the ironing part it just makes it looks nicer and more professional just make sure the seams you roll the seams out and there you have it now we're going To sew the fabric right sides facing each other, but we we're going to start from the seam make sure you only start from the seam so that um it matches um really well, so he's going to pin, pin the fabric all the way, but leave about three Inch at the edge and at the end of your fabric, on each side, on the satin side and also on the ankara side, you see what i mean by leaving, leaving it um on sewn. So there you have it it's about three inch long. So just leave that open and then you sew it and then at the other end as well, leave it open that's about three inch long so now we're turning the fabric, the right side out and that's the bottom and that's the top. So we're going to make a casing for the bottom, so our elastic can go in so making a casing so just saw around leave about um three-quarter inch casing for half an inch, um elastic and half an inch elastic measures, six inches long. But obviously, when you're doing the casing leave a little gap about half an inch or one inch gap so that you can push your elastic through if you've seen the other video, then you know how to make this part. It'S more explanatory um, it's better explained in the other video, but so make sure you have a look at the other video as well, so obviously sew the elastic and push it through. Now we're going to join our strap to the main part of the of the bonnet first we're going to take the edge where our edge circumference ended to the edge of the main body. The ankara side facing the ankara side. Remember that we'll do that. We do the edges first, so the edge of the strap to the edge of the bonnet. I hope this makes sense if you don't get it do. Let me know in the comments and i'll try to make another video, that's more um, more clear, so we're doing the edge then we'll find the midpoint of the two fabrics. You find the midpoint of the strap. That'S easy to know because that's where we joined it and then you find the midpoint of the main body of the bonnet now the remaining fabric we haven't, pinned we're going to plate it so you're, just folding the fabric back and then pinning it to the strap. So you fold the back and pin it or you're just trying to just trying to make the extra fabric fit around the strap, so we're just folding it randomly there's no match to it just fold it back randomly i'm just trying to get it to fit the Strap now you can also gather stitch. You can also gather stitch the bonnet um before you before you join it to the strap it's up to you, but i actually prefer this pleating method, because i think it looks nice with the pleats when um the bonnet is sewn, so we're just going to go All the way, we're doing one side at the moment and then the other side as well i'll, show you how i'm doing the split is very random. As you can see, i just fold it backwards like that is fold the main part of the bonnet backwards and then join it to the strap, don't fold the strap. The strap does not need splitting only the main part of the bonnet and, as you can see, it's all finished so we're just going to sew what we've pinned. We sewed the ankara part to this um to the strap. Okay trim off any excess thread. Now we're going to finish off the strap, don't worry a new amount of shot, but you see what i'm doing so. What you're going to do is fold in the raw edges fold fold it in like that and then pin it down and we're going to do it all the way fold it inwards like just fold it in and pin it down fold and pin we're nearly there Guys so do so we're going to sew what we've pinned like so i'm going to sew it and there you have it now we're going to close the opening part so fold in the edges just fold it and fold them fold it in and then pin it Together because we're going to top stitch fold the satin and then fold the ankara and there so i'm taking it to the sewing machine. Just to finish finish everything off and that's that we've done that we're just going to close the opening for the casing there and there's our product um. If you watch my other video with the elastic it's the same air bonnet, but that one comes with elastic um, then you understand what we're doing a bit more. If this video has been a little confusing, then i suggest you watch the one with the elastic. It'S well explained, and also you can get the pattern on that video and yeah um. Thank you so much guys for watching, don't forget to like subscribe and comment below, take care guys and stay safe.
