quick & easy fabric headband

Thursday, April 12, 2012

I made the easiest little headband for Izzy yesterday while she napped.

Praise the Lord, she took a nap!  Can I get an AMEN!!!

Planned on adding more to it, but figured sometimes it's best to keep it simple ;)

Supply List:
  • fabric scrap approx 4" wide by 30" long
  • headband template (found at end of post)
  • iron
  • scissors
  • sewing machine and thread

Here we go!

STEP ONE: After cutting out the headband template (found at the bottom of the post), fold your strip of fabric in half and place your template on top. The very top of the template marked "fold" should line up with the fold in your fabric. Cut out your fabric leaving a 1/2" allowance. Note: you don't need an allowance at the fold.

STEP TWO: Fold in the long edges approx 3/8" and press with iron. Fold in again another 3/8" and again press with iron. This will hide your frayed edges.

STEP THREE: Sew your folded edges down, leaving the two end tails raw.

STEP FOUR: Fold in your two end pieces in on themselves twice and sew down.  Now go find a cutie-pa-tootie and tie that sucker on!
