I am trying to sew my own fleece face cradle covers. I'm having a hard time making the pattern for it. Does anyone here sew their own face cradles? Could you give me poointers on how to make them? Thanks a lot!

I've been sewing my own for a few years, and have not perfected the pattern yet!

My next attempt will merely be a one piece properly edged, with a couple elastic bands to hold it in place. That would probably be the best bet for the fleece also (considering the thickness)! Trying to fit it perfectly in a manner that eliminates lines on our clients foreheads has been a real challenge.

I don't sew my own, but the business I buy them from uses a variety of stretch materials. It appears that they are cut crescent shaped, and have elastic sewn around the edges. No seams causing lines on clients' faces! If you want to look at the website, its called All-In-One Linens, http://allinonelinens.com/index.htm .

I read a post with the following pattern in it and have been using them ever since. They aren't fitted but work just great!! And NO lines!

Take a 16x16 square of fleece and cut a slit up the middle 10 inches (I have some at 10 and some at 9). The edges don't fray and they hold their shape just great! I used one yard of fleece and got 8 face cradle covers--That's about $1 apiece!

Thank you for all your input.. It's been a hassle trying to make them fitted, since they are so thick. I think I will stick with Laney's idea for now on the 16x16 square. I bouth 8 yeards at Joann Fabrics on sale for only $3.50 a yard. If I can get 8 out of a yard, that's only .44 each. Awesome! Thanks again.

I use a rounded shape cut from fleece, traced a few inches around my facerest, then cut kind of a Y in it. After the fleece is washed a bunch of times, it does pill and become a little uncomfortable. You can do the same thing with flannel or moleskin, but you'd best bind the edges with a zigzag stitch.
