How to Sew a Chemotherapy Turban

For anyone out there who owns a sewing machine, gets bored easily and likes me a lot.. Please feel free to make me a turban out of some cool material.


Chemotherapy is a treatment that leaves many patients with hair loss. A turban is a wonderful gift to make for someone who is going through chemo. Chemotherapy turbans are also a great project for your sewing group to work on for charities. Either way, you can brighten someone’s day just by making this simple head covering.


Difficulty: Easy


Things You’ll Need:

  • 1 yard of fabric
  • Measuring tape
  • Scissors
  • Sewing machine
  • Brooch/Button/Bow (optional)
  1. 1

    Purchase 1 yard of fabric for each chemotherapy turban you want to make. If you are sewing this for someone you know, choose a fabric that shows his or her personality. If you are making your turbans for a charity project, choose fun patterns with bright colors. Choose 100 percent cotton fabrics for frequent washing.

  2. 2

    Cut the fabric into a 37-inch square.

  3. 3

    Sew a hem all the way around the square.

  4. 4

    Wrap the turban around you or your friend’s head by folding the turban into a triangle. Center the bottom end of the triangle at the nape of the neck. Bring the other two ends around the front of the head and tie in place. Add a brooch, button or bow to make it more pretty.







Haha.. I think these are pretty funny. I am kinda looking forward to wearing one and looking like a baby.
