Headbands are lovely accessories that combine fashion with practical/utilitarian purposes holding hair away from the face or eyes. In this way, Melissa from HoneyBeeVintage was very inspired to show us how a headband can be done. Firstly, you need a knit fabric (or old t-shirt), matching thread, scissors. Now, let`s follow the steps below:
Step 1: Cut two strips out of the knit fabric. that are double the final width you want your headband straps to be. (about 4 in x 20 in).
Step 2: Fold each strip in half (with right sides facing) and sew down the long side of raw edges. Flip right side out. Now you will have two “tubes”.
Step 3: Lay out tubes (seam sides up) in the shape of an “X”.
Step 4: Fold strips over so that they are linked together, matching up the raw edges.
Step 5: Take the unfinished headband and wrap around your head to see how tight to make it. Line up all raw edges and sew together with a straight stitch. Cut off any excess.
Step 6: Flip seam to the inside of headband and wear!
