So i got bored and wanted some headbands, but of course i'm not one who would pay for something i can make myself. So, i found my manilla newsprint stuff, and i made a basic shape pattern, and ended up with 4 headbands and cut out fabric for more!

Here are two i've made already [i'm wearing one, and i gave the other one to my cousin.]



Soooo. Here's an extremely detailed tutorial!

1. Cut out two peices of fabric using this shape. I know, i didn't do the greatest job, but i'm one of those people who can use sloppily-cut fabric and still know what she's doing.


2. Put the two peices together, right sides together, and pin [if you want.]


3. Sew along the two long sides [NOT the ends] with about a... 1/2 in. seam allowance.


4. Turn the whole thing inside out.

5. Tuck the ends inside like 1/2 or 3/4 in., and tuck the end of a 6in. piece of elastic into the ends of the headband, pin [if you want], and sew across a couple times [to keep a strong hold on the elastic.]



6. Do the same to the other side. Make sure you don't twist the elastic and/or main piece...



TA DA! Now you have a really easy-to-make headband.

Buuut... i don't have access to an iron at the moment, so i just wear them on my head once i finish one so it flattens out. Haha.

That's definately a cool idea! I'm not good with sewing, but this seems doable for me Smiley It'd be cool to embellish it with little gems or beads or something, too.
Well done.

These are so cute!  About what size is the fabric piece you cut out?  I just want to make sure I do it right.  These will make great xmas gifts!  Thanks!   Smiley

Yay for this tut! I was just asked last week to make some of these for a friends daughter. Does anyone have any idea how long to make them for a child's head (about a 4 year old)??  Huh She's out of state or I'd measure it myself lol

Ok... I had 2 of my girlfriend measure... the younger girl (4) has really thick curly curly hair and needs about 18" the older girl (11) needs about 19.5" just in case anyone else wanted to mod this for a child  Smiley
