The Feedback Board: Reader Turbans!

I've been wanting to do one of these posts for some time showing off some of your results from using the tutorials that I post and the interesting spins you take. More than anything else, I've seen some pretty fancy turbans out there from some of you travelers! Some of this could do with the simplicity and versatility of the project, but it could also correlate with the hot summer weather that's rolling in a lot of our reader areas (handy tip, you can wrap cold packs and bags of ice into the turban itself). Why don't we look at a couple of fashionable examples?

First up we have Gretchen Jacobsen, a very talented costumer from Atlanta, Georgia. Gretchen sent in a couple of photos of her steampunk costume that was inspired by the Orientalist craze of the late 19th century, including a very colorful turban made using the tutorial:

As you can see, Gretchen was smart and used a soft-folding natural fiber.

Another intrepid turban-maker is Tabitha Kelley, who made this one for her little 16-month old daughter. The results are simple, but adorable:

I just broke my d'aww bone
I'm glad you ladies are enjoying your turbans. If you've done a project based off of one of the tutorials posted on the Steamer's Trunk, please send in your pictures and show them off! Creativity is the gift that keeps on giving and indeed, is what gives steampunk its steam- so keep experimenting!

  2. I've discovered that I can make a very simple (albeit small) turban using some of those fashion scarves that you see popping up everywhere. I'm afraid I now suffer from turban-mania :D

  3. I love reading your blog. I am working on a steampunk belly dancing costume (which can be a bit overdone) but I am from the middle east, and take belly dancing, and love steampunk so I am trying to put it all together.

    p.s. I gave you an award on my blog

  5. Hey Jenny! Cheryl & I saw you at the last event. Could you send her, or post the links for the Ottoman shoes you mentioned? I'm hoping to have them by Dragon Con. Cheryl is currently working on the costume.
