The Past Design Gallery

I am happy to do custom orders from your fabrics or mine.  I can attempt to duplicate a past design or a current design in a different color upon request, depending on fabric availability. Here you will find information on how to choose your own fabric plus a selection of past designs and custom orders for inspiration.

How to choose a snood or hat fabric:

There are so many choices of fabric, it can be quite overwhelming!  When choosing a fabric for your custom headcovering, keep in mind that a stretchy fabric is essential for a good fit, even on the pre-tied tichels.  Look for knits, especially knits with added Lycra, that have a lot of stretch and good "recovery" -- that is, they return to their original size quickly when stretched, without wrinkling the fabric in the process.

Some excellent choices are Stretch Velvet; Stretch Crushed Velvet, also known as Panne; Cotton-Lycra Knits; and Slinky or other Lycra knits, such as Dancewear fabrics.  Stretch Matte Jersey, if you can find it, also makes a very nice snood.   Jersey or Interlock Knits without added Lycra may also work, but tend to stretch out faster over time.

You will need 1/2 yard per snood or hat, 3/4 yard per pre-tied tichel.
