Forhead Cloth

 

 
Also known as a Cross Cloth
A forhead cloth keeps the coif clean.
  forhead cloth

Cut a large piece of linen about 25" square.  Pulled a thread from each side to square it up perfectly and use it as a cutting line.

Sew it up with twill tape at the flat ends.  The tape is for pinning the cloth in place to the hair in the back of the bun.

 

  finished size 23" which is really too big for my head.  the linen is very streatchy on the bias.  Next one should be about 20"
