Based on a tutorial by Tallgrass Prairie Studio.
Cut 15x 5 inches ectangle, fold with right sides together and stitch with a 1/4′ seam allowance.
Turn inside out and iron with seam in the middle and the edges turned inside.
Cut second rectangle and fold in half. Then cut the corner off one side like in the picture.
Snip the pointy edge and make a cut in the corner so that the angles are neatly ironed. Turn inside out and iron.
You’re now ready to put everything together.
Slide elastic band in one side together with one of the side bits like in the picture. Pin in place.
Do the same on the other side.
I made a little fold on each side so that the headband wraps better around the head. This is particularly important with wider headbands.
Fold is more visible in this photo. Stitch in place.
Tie the sides to match the head size.
Simple headband without the sides
This headband is slightly wider at 6 1/2′ wide.
I still have leftovers from my celtic string quilt so I thought I’d make a headband out of it.
Same method as above, but without the flaps.
You can adjust the width to your liking. Only make sure that you make folds on the sides for wider headbands.
And a couple more – I seem not to be able to stop making headbands!
The finished headbands.
One with quilted flower.
