No more flimsy shower caps for me (Day 29 Post)

I am sick of having to replace my shower cap every few months due to the elastic stretching or coming away from the plastic cap.     This problem was finally solved yesterday with some pretty fabric.

And on the inside rip stop nylon was used to make it waterproof.   I used pre-made bias binding to form the casing and slotted some 1/4" elastic through.   This will be so much more sturdy than the very thin hat elastic used in the ones I have been buying.

It is a nice snug fit and I will "christen" it under the shower  today.

Back soon and in the meantime

Happy sewing all

I like your shower cap idea
What is the stuff you used for the waterproofing
I have never heard of it and where would you get it
In total agreement about the bought shower caps Wouldn't mind giving your idea a go
