1. 1/8 yard of any medium weight fabric of your choice. If you want to make it wider,
choose one that is flowing like chiffon or lightweight cotton.

2. 3/8 inch elastic – you will need a strip that is 6 ½ inches long

3. Sewing Machine and sewing notions.

Finished size is 21 inches. Fits teen to adult head. You can make it wider too as shown in
pink polka dot above.

Cut two strips of fabric. The bigger one is 16 ½ inches long and 4 ¼ inches wide. The smaller one is 2 ¼ inches wide and 12 inches long. If making the wider version shown in pink polka, cut the bigger one 16 ½ inches long and 8 ½ inches wide

Take the smaller band, fold in the two longer edges by 1/4 of an inch and iron it down

Fold the band lengthwise along the middle again and iron it down.

Your band will look like this now.

Sew the fold shut close to the edge. Sew along the other longer side too to make your band look uniform.

Using a safety pin start inserting the elastic into the band you just made

When the elastic reaches the level of the opening, sew back and forth to hold it in place using a 3/8 inch seam.

Now continue inserting the elastic till it emerges through the opening on the other side, sew back and forth with a 3/8 inch seam

Your elastic band is now complete

Take the bigger band and fold the longer edge by 1/8 inches, fold again by 1/8 inches and sew it down. Repeat the same with the other long edge.

Your band looks like this now after sewing down both the longer sides

The bands are now ready to be joined together

Take the bigger band and sew a basting stitch ( the longest stitch on your machine) along one of the shorter raw edges taking care not to stitch back and forth at the beginning and end. Cut the thread after leaving a 6-inch tail. Repeat with the other shorter edge

Pull the thread gently to gather the side. Repeat on the other side too.

Keep the elastic band on the right side of the wide band.

Wrap the wide band around the elastic band. You might have to adjust the gathers on the bigger band to make it fit around the elastic band.

Sew leaving a ½ inch seam. Repeat the same steps on the other side.

Your band will now look like this. You can trim the seam to reduce the bulk.

Pull the elastic band as shown to make the seam go inside and stay concealed. Repeat on the other side too

Your headband is now complete!
