I followed Happy Together’s instructions for making this easy two side headband.
I ended up making 12 in an afternoon. I, however, found that they were a bit too wide for my head and I simply used a wider seam allowance. The wider seam allowance worked perfectly. I trimmed off the excess before I turned. I also used what I had around. I used old clothing for fabric, an old pillowcase, some vintage double knit and some old bandannas.
The hardest part of the project was the turning. I couldn’t whip up one in 5 minutes if it took me 15 minutes to get the darn thing turned inside out. Since I am a notion addict, I got out my notion box and low and behold I had these.
If you don’t have this notion, get one if you can. It consists of a tube and a stick. You slide the tube though the headband, use the stick to push the fabric through and in 5 second it is turned and ready to press. You would also use this on the piece for the elastic.
Thanks Happy Together for a great easy and useful project.
