If you’re looking for an easy infant headband, these turbans are for you! They’re super soft, and don’t leave marks like elastic styles. Made from jersey fabric, these are a washable, every-day accessory.
Step 1: Cut two pieces of fabric 6″w x 14″l
Step 2: Lay the pieces over each other, forming a cross.
Step 3: Fold each piece in half, lengthwise.
Step 4: Fold bottom piece in half, width-wise.
Step 5: Turn the top piece to meet the end, width-wise.
Step 6: Pull the top piece out, and check the overlap knot.
Step 7: Fold the top piece back again, width-wise.
Step 8: Stitch along the ends. Be sure to reinforce the seams by back-stitching.
Step 9: Flip the entire headband right-side-out. Press the seam so that it lays flat.
Step 10: Now you can bunch or loosen the headband to adjust the style.
- You can buy jersey fabric or re-use a mildly used T-shirt for this project!
- Always iron fabric to ensure it lays flat when sewing.
- Measure your child’s head to adjust the size of the headband. Just add 1.5″ to the measured length to leave room for sewing.
- For an adult version, I recommend 8″w x 24″l.
