how to sew a fabric headband
To make the fabric headband you will need 1/8 yard of fabric, an iron and one fourth inch wide elastic.
Next, you will need to measure your head and subtract two inches. After your material is cut out then lay wrong side facing up and fold in 1/4 inch on the short sides. Sew a 1/4 inch seam allowance along the lengthwise part of the material. Turn inside out, and press seam so that it is in the middle.
Cut a piece of elastic that is three and a half inches long. Then insert it into the end. Now take the top part and fold down to the seam in the middle. Then take the bottom and fold to the middle seam as shown in picture. Sew across being sure to catch elastic inside.
Repeat on opposite end.
the original pattern can be found here.
I just tweaked her pattern a little.
