    Scrub caps for nurses with longer hair

    Today, I started churning out scrub caps for my DIL's team. I chose the first fabric from my stash store. I cut 4 and started working on them. Morgan came over when Jim had a break and picked fabric from my stash store. She picked a batik for the cap and a black on black swirl for the band. I'll start cutting those later tonight. She picked several batiks with bright colors for her friends. I'll be busy for a day or two knocking them out. 102_0636.JPG

          https://youtu.be/qZGE31e4Hu4 is the YouTube tutorial... Be forewarned, she's not Jenny or Donna as far as showing you how to do it.

          They are really easy to sew in factory mode. I do all of the pressing first, then stitch the bottom of the front closed. I miter the tie ends so there aren't any loose threads hanging out.

          Then I do all of the elastic steps, make the casings, thread and get those all set.

          The longest part to me is the gathering. and making it fit the brim.

          The part I really didn't get from the tutorial was how to join the gathered crown and the bottom of the brim/ straps. The easiest thing, I figured out. As your gathering, go ahead and pin the elastic casing to the bottom of the band to match and have the gathering start toward the upper edge of the curved head band. So the sides of that curved part that goes around the face is smooth. I'm not sure that the dots on the pattern really helped me at all.

          I hope that helps, any other tips and tricks would greatly be appreciated.

            Alrighty,

            So after consideration, and the thought of quilters cotton is going to shrink with hot water washing and drying. Jim's going to wash one of the caps I made yesterday. and see how much it does shrink.

            This morning, I made one in the colors she picked, but I added an inch to the elastic (4"). I think after putting that on and wearing it for a few minutes. It's still really snug on my head and I honestly don't see the point of the ties, but my hair isn't long either! So my next one, I'm going to try 5" for the elastic.

            Apparently, I didn't hit post...

            5" makes the cap much more comfortable. Wowsers, Morgan suffers with migraines, I can't imagine her being able to last through a 12 hour shift with the 3 inches of elastic. Hopefully, she'll find a nurse on staff with a smaller head! I'm definitely making the rest with 5" of elastic in the back.
