|Stealing my kisses from Macky boy.|
When I went to Las Vegas last weekend I bought this headband at Charming Charlies and fell in love. I’d been wanting to make one, and after I got it I knew I needed to make a few more! I love headbands for an extra accessory, but this one is kind of like an ear warmer as well! Can’t wait to wear these all winter.
What you'll need:
You’ll need some a quarter yard of stretchy fabric, a sewing machine and thread!
How long will it take?
How much will it cost?2-3 dollars tops. I used my left over material from my Maxi Skirt
Steps to making your head band:
You’ll cut 2 pieces of fabric, the headband, 10 by 20 inches.(You can make it longer or shorter)
And the headband tie, 4 by 10 inches.
Fold them over and pin the edges.
Wrap the tie around the headband, maybe 3 or 4 times. You want the tie looser. It's main purpose is to hide underneath the headband, and to bring it together in a scrunch.
Pull the tie to the center of the headband for now, and fold the headband in half. Pin the edges and sew a straight line, a centimeter in, and zig zag the edges. I did this a few times to make sure my headband was strong.
Now fold the stitch in on both sides, like the picture and pull the tie over to cover!
Wa-la! Now forgive me for my, myspace picture. My husband is off studying, so this was the best shot of the headband I could get. Enjoy!
