DIY Turband

<DIY Turband/>

So my regular followers will know I own a tonn of turbands:

I had a request for a DIY one so here's my attempt at explaining!

Click Below to see the Tutorial:



For this headband you will need:

- stretchy jersey fabric 16 inches by 24 inches
- chalk
- measuring tape/ruler
- scissors
- pins
- Needle and thread OR Sewing machine


1) The first thing you will need to do is cut your fabric in half, leaving you with two pieces 8 by 24 inches.
2) Next you need to fold each piece in half, pin in place and straight stitch the full 24inch length
3) You should now have two tubes of fabric, which need turning inside out to hide the rough/sewn edge
4) Then one of the pieces needs to be placed on top of the other like in the image below

5) The vertical piece then needs to fold in half, enclosing the horizontal. The horizontal piece also needs to fold in half also.


6) You should end up with some thing that looks like this:
7) give the two ends a pull to create the knot like middle

8) Gather all the ends together and sew in place.
9) After sewing, turn the headband inside-out so the sewn edges are on the inside.

 And voilĂ !



Alternatively: 

This one takes just a minute, you will need:

- A Jersey Headband
- Needle and Thread
- Sew on gem (optional)

1)Gather the front of a basic headband and stitch in place
2) Simply wear it like this or add a little sew on bead for more detail:
