In the past, I’ve created head wraps out of small scarfs and t-shirts, but this was so much easier! Most importantly, half of the work was done for me! I’m so excited to find some cheap, patterned cotton leggings to make more turbans! I’ll, of course, update you guys and create more Fall turban looks here!
