How to Sew a Shower Cap

How to Sew a Shower Cap

Due to popular demand, we now offer the option to purchase a 20" circle of our laminated fabric just for this project!

Laminated cotton is perfect for this project. Using it as the outside layer of your shower cap gives you a waterproof barrier, keeping your hair nice and dry! We like to use a coordinating satin fabric for the lining, which helps keep your hair smooth. Another great option is a coordinating print in laminated fabric, making the shower cap reversible! 

For the purpose of this tutorial, we are going to make our shower cap with two circles of laminated fabric.


  • 1 - 20" circle of laminated fabric for outside
  • 1 - 20" circle of either satin or laminated fabric for lining
  • 1/4" flat elastic - 20" long
  • 20" piece of 1/4" flat elastic
  • iron, ironing board and a scrap of cotton fabric
  • safety pin
  • clips
  • sewing machine with a teflon foot
