Finally back with another DIY tutorial. I saw headbands/ turban style headbands on the Sportsgirl website a while back and they retailed for about $10.00 (cheap to begin with but whatevs), all the materials I used I had lying around so it was pretty much free for me to make.
What you will need:
A length of fabric (that will fit around your head with 2 inches or so spare, but you can have it as wide as you like)
Needle and thread
a ‘ring’ and a smaller piece of fabric / an embellishment you want to use
Fold fabric in half lengthways with the print ‘inside’. Sew along the length of the fabric bunch up a little until its a little longer that the circumference of your head.
Turn fabric the right way.
Get the ring you are going to use in the middle to connect the two sides. (btw i think this is from a curtain)
Cover in fabric, its ok if you can see the sewing on one side as this will be the side it side on your forehead.
Fold the end of one side over (tuck in the ends) and sew the ring into the ‘loop’.
Do the same to the other side
Finished! This is as basic as it gets! Really simple to do in pretty much no time at all. You can always use a sewing machine but I’m keeping these as easy as possible, plus I like watching TV when I do crafts so using a machine would be too noisy!
Helpful hint, use a stretchy material and thread.
Below are variations, just using a wider piece of fabric. I replaced the fabric covered ring with a knot of fabric. This is the perfect place to add an embellishment.
Next up will be a shoulder embellished cut up top.
