Super Easy Headband

{Fastest Headband Ever}


I found this 10 minute headband over at Bluebird Studio and I have never made any like this before so I decided to give it a shot. She has a great tutorial, be sure to head over and check it out. It was so simple! There was no turning stuff inside out or trying to loop elastic through the fabric, just sewing a simple strip and attaching a hair tie at the bottom. Simple and beautiful!

I started with a 6” wide and 22” long strip of fabric and a hair tie
I folded the fabric in half length wise and ironed a crease into it and unfolded it


Using the iron again I folded the edges one at a time to the center crease and ironed again

After I had ironed both sides in, I folded to the center crease, I folded the fabric in half again and ironed it flat

I sewed along each edge of the fabric

I folded the ends in and creased them, 

Placed the hair tie into the creases and sewed them shut using the zig zag stitch to hold it in.

Ta-Da! Beautiful headband!

This is gorgeous and really classic looking. I really love the way that the elastic is looped in the back instead of cut. You know what I mean? A lot of tutorials show that you have to cut it and sew each end to opposite ends of the hadband but then you have to sew over it a million times to make sure it holds!

I really like this, I have about a million hairbands that I don't use and tons of scraps! I think I might just whip up a few of these!

Just a note- Bluebird Studios recommends doing 18"-20" long if the headband is for a child. I didn't read that until after I made the headband and now it is too long for my niece.

This is super cute! I need a sewing machine, maybe this summer I can get ahold of one. But this is really cute, my girls would love them!
