Hello everyone! You all, probably don’t know who I am. Right? I thought so. My name is Ashley, and I have a humble blog called, Bramblewood Fashion, which I share with one of my younger sisters, Gabrielle. Our blog is full of sewing projects, daily (or rather weekly) outfit posts, and some tutorials thrown in. I must also mention, that I am so excited to do a post on Jen’s blog!
- 1/4 yard of Fabric (You can also just use scraps that you have laying around.)
- 1/4 inch wide elastic
- Sewing Machine
- Trimmings (Rick-Rack, Buttons, Lace, Fabric Flowers, etc…)
- Fusible Webbing (Optional) [Mine is 1/2 inch wide, sticky on both sides, and comes in a box. You don’t have to have this, but I like how it makes the headband a little more sturdier, and I have less pinning to do when I sew the headband.]
1. The first step is to measure your head. Like how I did in the picture below. Take note on your measurement, mine is 22 1/2 inches.
3. Now it is time for a little math. Follow the instructions below for the next step.
10. Press half way. Then repeat the second half of step nine, place a small part of the elastic on the other end, and remember to add a small piece of webbing on top of the elastic. Finish ironing.
If you want to add a fabric flower like how I did below. Follow these wonderful instructions!
Thanks so much Ashley!! What a great project. With three daughters in the house, we LOVE headbands around here. I will be trying my hand at those SOON! Here’s a button for sharing your tutorial with us!
