Easy turban from a T-shirt

Don't know about you but money is tight. Just found how you can take a tshirt and make a turban. Use a large T-shirt, cut the body off just below the sleeves. Place the t-shirt (now looks like a tube) on your head with the bottom seam on your forhead. The part that is now draped over your head and down your back you twist to make a circle and pull that back up to the top of the head. Tuch in any ends and you have a turban. Hope that makes sense?

I know what you mean about money being tight - so thanks for the turban idea.

There are some organizations that will send you free hats/scarves, etc. when you are going through chemo. I have received hats from www.heavenlyhats.org and www.hatsoff-to-chemo.org. You just go online, fill out a form and hats show up at your door in a couple of weeks. There is a scarf company franceluxe.com - they also send you a scarf for free - and they are not cheap scarves. I am expecting the one I picked out any time now.

I hope you can benefit from some of these organizations, too! Again, thanks for the tip.

You can also cut a few inches of sleeve off the t-shirt for headbands. They add some fashion to your turbans, hats or scarves, and help with coverage and "slippage".

I saw that on youtube. I love that site, you can learn anything on there. I was watching how to apply false eyelashes yesterday.
