I've seen several cute headbands, like these I am about to show, on Pinterest. But none of them (that I have seen) have tutorials! So here is my (very detailed) tutorial for making these super quick and easy headbands! Don't be discouraged by the length of this tutorial, these come together really quickly! I just wanted to be super detailed in my tutorial.
These headbands are now available for order in my etsy shop, PreciousPrep! (New colors just added!)
Cut two long strips of stretchy knit fabric 6" by 22" each (approx. if you have a really big or small head you may need to adjust the length, I think my head is normal to big... haha)
Fold each piece along the long side with right sides together and sew all the way up. Again no real need to be precise, and even if I tried to be precise I failed because stretchy fabric is tough to sew with!!
Turn each tube inside out.
Lay the pieces in a '+' shape. Make sure the seams are in the middle, facing up for the bottom piece and facing down for the top piece.
Fold over the bottom piece (you shouldn't be able to see this piece's seam now)
Fold the top piece in half (again now you shouldn't see that piece's seam)
Bring all 4 ends together and sew across. This is kind of tricky to get all these slippery strips together, but as usual - precision isn't super necessary! Love projects where you don't have to be perfect!
Cut off a little of the excess and trim the corners so they don't show as much.
Try it on! Sooooo comfy!
Make a bunch! I plan to buy some more fabric and make even more for different gym outfits!
Well what do you think? Hope you enjoy yours as much as I am already enjoying mine!
