Thanks to Valerie Bryant for another wonderful Sewing 101 session. You can find more great sewing inspiration and shopping by visiting her blog Threads Thoughts Things and Dottie Adele on Etsy! Oh, and if the thought of making your own turban headband intimidates you (or you’re just as instant-gratification as I am!), I happen to know just where you can get one already made for a ridiculously great price…!
Today’s tutorial is a mega-adorable turban headband. So easy to throw on over dirty hair and still look stylish, or to keep your crazy strands off your face! I love to add these to an outfit for that extra oomph, and I’m always rocking them at the pool. This is a perfect less-than-one-hour project for a beginner!
DIY Turban Headband
- 1/2 yard of knit fabric (must have a significant amount of stretch)
- Matching thread
- Pins & needles
- Marking tool (I used a pencil)
- Measuring tape
- Sewing machine + ballpoint needle for sewing with knits
- Cutting utensil: rotary cutter or shears
Fold your fabric in half. Make sure that your fabric stretches along the fold.
Cut out the rectangle you have measured. Do not unfold your fabric.
Using a zigzag stitch, sew the entire long edge together.
