Support our NHS and front-line workers
Some NHS staff and other front-line workers are working without sufficient protective clothing. There has been an appeal for people to make protective clothing. The pattern I am sharing with you is for scrub hats (protective headwear). If you would like to have a go at making one all of the necessary information is included. You will need to print the pattern out on A4 paper.
Additional information about scrub hats
- The fabric should be either polyester or a polyester cotton mix
- The fabric must be able to be washed at 60 degrees centigrade
- The fabric can be plain or patterned
- You can recycle old quilt covers or curtain fabric (check the fibre content on the label first)
- Ideal width of fabric to is 116cm/48 inches, wider fabric will also work
- 50cm/20 inches of fabric will make one hat, alternatively you can use 25cm/10 inches of lining fabric and 25cm/10 inches of exterior fabric
- When you have made the scrub hat it must be washed at 60 degrees, dried and put into a clean plastic bag
- Deliver the completed hats to the reception at Hungerhill school
Tip: it might be worth trying it out in paper first.
