DIY an Adorable Turban Headband
Tools and Materials:
- Safety pins
- Needle and thread/sewing machine
Before you get started on this awesome headband let’s talk about fabric! For this exciting project, you will need two pieces of fabric 47 by 18 cm and a smaller piece 28 by 8 cm. I chose to use this super cute, black, and white floral fabric. Get creative with your color choices and fabric design to suit your aesthetic!
Start by folding all 3 pieces in half and sewing closed the open side of the pieces, opposite the fold.
Once your pieces have been sewed, press down the fabric to get the pieces nice and flat. This always helps make the fabric a little easier to work with!
Next, fold in the ends of the strips to about 1 cm. Press the folds down to help keep them in place.
It’s time to add the elastic! Take a 15 cm piece of elastic and attach a safety pin to one end. Thread the elastic through your smallest fabric strip. Once your elastic is through, pin both ends of the elastic to the fabric, to hold it in place and stitch closed the two ends.
In this step, fold over one of the bigger pieces of fabric. Place your elastic piece in the center on the one side of the fabric.
Next, fold the two side flaps over the elastic piece and pin them in place.
Take the third piece of fabric and pull it through the loop you just created.
Attach the elastic piece to the other side by repeating the same folding you did earlier. Pin it in place and then start stitching the elastic and fabrics together.
I am obsessed with this headband! What fabric would you use to make it? Let me know in the comments below!
