Hey Everyone! I am so excited to be sharing this video with you today because it has been on my “want to make” list for so long and now that I have made my own DIY headbands I wanted to show you how to make them too! I made a video tutorial this time around because I thought it would be a lot easier for you to follow along with than just written steps. None of the headbands are really hard to sew at all though, so don’t worry! It is also a great project to use up scraps or make a bunch of them for gifts because it doesn’t require a lot of fabric.
In the video I will show you how to make 3 different kinds: a simple headband, a bow headband, and a turban inspired headband. The best part about all of them is that I was able to use a straight stitch even with the stretch fabric thanks to Coats & Clark’s new Eloflex thread that is available at JoAnn’s. Eloflex expands with the fabric so that seams and hems won’t break when the fabric is stretched. It is still important to use a needle for knits like a ball-point, jersey, or stretch needle when using Eloflex.

I love them all so much that I can’t pick a favorite. I will say that the simple one gets a lot of use because I wear it to keep my hair out of my face when I work out and wash my face. I definitely need to make more in different patterns and colors!
As always, I am here to be your personal sewing cheerleader! You got this guys!! If you happen to come across any questions that I don’t seem to answer in the video, just leave a comment on the video or this post and I’ll get back to you as soon as I can! Happy Sewing!!
