I made some of these headbands for my Etsy shop ennadoolf.
My friend Maria chose some fabrics for me to make some more so I thought I'd document the process as a tutorial.
Sewing a Headband
Supplies Needed: fabric (approx. 4"x20" or 10cm x 52cm) and a hair elastic.
Fold in half lengthwise with right sides together.
Sew along the long edge (see photo) with about a 1/4 inch (1 cm) seam allowance.
If you think I missed a step, or if you have questions, please leave a comment.
In my "too-small-for-Maria" headbands, I cut them 19" long so that's why I've adjusted to 20" for this tutorial.
I have to admit, too, that the dollar store elastics had better stretch then the name-brand ones that cost more and actually snapped when they were stretched.
