I have been in a sewing mood lately. I shared an applique tutorial last week, you can find that here. In another week or so I will share a really great garden apron tutorial. Today, however, I have the quickest easiest tutorial of all!
Just so you know, I did not invent this and I am not the second or third person to post a tutorial on how to do this. However, I have watched and read several tutorials and found what I thought was the best way to do this. If you have a sewing machine, and if you can cut and sew a straight stitch, you can make a ten-minute twist headband!
Step 1 for Making a Twist Headband:
Measure your head or the head of the person you are making the twist headband for. I have made several of these I will share the measurements I am using with you. I think these would be pretty standard for a child or an adult.
When I measured my head it was about 22″ when I measured around the way a headband would fit. Since we are making it out of a stretchy knit fabric, we want to make it a bit smaller than our measurement.
For an adult I cut my fabric to 20″ and for a child I cut it to 18″. I think I could have cut it to 21″ and that may have been a bit better for me.
