Hey everyone! It’s Nikki from the women/tween department and I have 2 headband tutorials for you today. These patterns are for doll through women’s size! Both are so quick and simple I am sure you will make tons! Look at all of these that one of our amazing testers Audra made just last night!
First, we have a simple reversible woven headband that would be so easy to add embellishments to or just wear it plain. Here is a picture of one I made for my oldest girl! She wears headbands a lot.
This style of headband is great because it stays right where you want it, unlike many other styles that slip out of place. Also, our instructions show you how to make the headband with exposed elastic or fabric-encased elastic, so you can decide which works best for you! Here are some more views of the reversible woven headband:
The second headband we're sharing with you today is made with knit fabric and is so comfortable. I have made these for my daughters for years. Don’t let the fact that it is knit scare you; this headband doesn’t require much stitching at all. If you use fold-over elastic instead of sewing a casing for your elastic, it only requires sewing in two spots! Here is the one I made for my youngest:
And here is one I made for my oldest using stretch lace.
These knit headbands are really comfy! And because of the elastic in back, they stay in place better than other knit headbands you might have tried. If you're looking for a good headband for exercising, you can even make this pattern using swimsuit fabric for a quick-drying version! Here are more photos from our testers:
I hope you fall in love with both styles of these headbands like we have! Don't forget that the pattern includes sizing for dolls, girls, tweens, and women! And after you make your own, please share your photos with us in our patterns group on Facebook!
