In my daydreams of sundresses and strappy sandals (as described yesterday), my head is usually adorned in matching headbands. So, of course, I had to engineer a pattern for that, too. What I came up with was so easy, and looks so great, I thought I would show you how.
Welcome to another WoolAndChocolate tutorial! 🙂
How to make a reversible headband for summer wear.
1. Make your pattern. Roughly it should look like this. A single piece of paper isn’t long enough, so you may need to tape another page to the first to make it long enough.
2. Cut out two pieces, placing the wide end on the fold of your fabric. I chose two very similar fabrics for this one, but it is fun to mix and match contrasting fabrics, as well.
3. Sew the two pieces together, right sides facing each other. Sew along the sides, leaving the ends open. Now, notch the curves so that they lay flat and trim wherever it’s needed.
4. Turn right side out and press it flat.
5. Now turn the ends under and press them in place.
6. Using a matching thread, top stitch around the entire edge.
7. Tie on your head and enjoy!
