Top Knot Turban Head Wrap Tutorial

I’ve been obsessed with these little baby head wraps for a little while and I’ve promised to some readers I would write tutorial on how to make them! This is my first ever tutorial so here goes!

You will need:

  • Scissors
  • 20″ of fabric (this will be for a newborn so if you would like to go larger I would suggest 25″ for 6 months – 1 Year)
  • Sewing machine
  • Tape measure
  • Threaded needle


            1. First off Measure your length


2.  Now cut the width.  The width will need to be 4″ wide for a 2″ wide band. Again this is for newborn so it will be on the small side. Go to 7″ if older.



3.  Now you have a 20″ long by 4″ wide strip of adorable fabric



4.  Now fold in half so the fabric cuteness is hiding.



5.  Cut each end diagonally towards the fold then sew down from the fold and turn fabric to go along the edge of fabric until the very end. Do not sew the other end, leave it open.


6.  Now take the sewn end and push it through to the other side thats open turning it right side out!

7.  Then take your open end and fold it in so there aren’t rough ends.  Grab your threaded needle and close up shop on that end! Trim any threads that may be hanging out.

8.  Then tie in knot! I like to leave about 1″ for tales.  I have so many that are just too big for River right now and they hang in her face. So make sure to make them small enough so there isn’t too much tale. Too much tale is never good..hehe.

There you go, you have your head wrap!!



With Love,

    So cute and seems super easy! Can’t wait to give it a shot this week. Just wanted to double check, but you cut an angle on both ends, right? Thanks for posting!

  2. This is great! Thanks so much for posting this tutorial. I’m wondering what kind of fabric you used. Thanks!

      Hi Katie! I use several different types of fabric but this one is a jersey knit! Good luck!

  3. Andrea Moore says:

    How do I get it to where there is a bow instead if the tails? Is it just how the knot is tied?

  4. Hi Lindsey! Thanks for the tutorial! Question – do you use elastic thread? Is your wrap stretchy?

  5. Kelsie Black says:

    Love the tutorial…. already made some for my little girl. I was wondering what size you would do for adults?

  6. Thanks for the tutorial. Love this fabric, where did you get it?

  7. Omg!!!! This is to much cuteness!!! I’m becoming a grandma in October. I’m hoping for a girl, since I had 2 boys. In 2 weeks if its a girl… She will have a drawer full thanks to your tutorial!!!! Thanks

  8. How did you end up tying the knot? Is there a special way to do it?

  9. I love your tutorial! I just got done fabric to give it a shot, I’m not a seamstress by any means but with this tutorial I’m sure I can do it. I ended up with only a gray knit, I’m having trouble finding really cute fabric, any suggestions on where to find the cute stuff? Thanks!! :)
