I've gone through a headband phase. I messed around with shape after shape until I came up with something that (I think) fits wonderfully. It's not too tight but stays on securely. Plus...it's really 2 headbands in 1 since it's totally reversible.



I have a little tutorial and a PDF of the templates on my blog.

If you make one, I'd love to see it!  Grin

Cheers!

Super cute!!  But my question is, will they fit on an oddly shaped head?  (well, maybe not oddly shaped, but one that doesn't normally accept headbands?)...  I love your fabric choices,too!

Glad y'all like it!

Malina...I'd try the narrow version. not sure what you mean by "odd" shape, but it seems to be the narrow version would be pretty sturdy for anyone. Also, try to gauge if it's coming off because it's too loose or too tight...but cases can cause it to come off. Once you know why it's happening you can shorted the elastic or trim the ends of the template a bit.

Cheers!

tried your tutorial last night (will post a pic later) and I'M IN LOVE!  so easy to make, took me all of 20 minutes, and now i can wear headbands all the time!  i had to tweak the length of elastic a little bit (i must have a big head!) but seriously totally easy.

thanks for posting this tutorial!  you made my day!
